Two people have died in strange circumstances at the the Refinery Junction, Eleme, River State.
It was learnt that one of the deceased, a woman in her 60s, dropped dead after alighting from a commercial motorcycle near the Refinery Junction.
The second person, a man, who was about 70 years old, reportedly slumped and died after alighting from a commercial vehicle that brought him from Bori.
The son of the man, who was contacted through his telephone, was said to have arrived at the scene and with the help of other people took the corpse away.
The son was quoted as saying that the deceased was at Eleme to withdraw money at a bank.
No one had come to identify the deceased woman or take her corpse away, many hours after she dropped dead.
