It was gathered that people decided to inspect his vehicle which had been running for hours at the spot where it was parked.

Concerned by the discovery, some of the people in the area, upon close observation of the vehicle, found Mbelu in it.

While some people speculated that the 42-year-old man might be sleeping, some other persons, who were bent on ascertaining Mbelu’s true state, reportedly made frantic efforts to wake him up but it proved abortive.

In a bid to rescue Mbelu, it was learnt that he was rushed to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, where he was reportedly confirmed dead by one of the doctors on duty.

Mbelu’s corpse was said to have been deposited in the hospital’s morgue.

The case was also reported to the police for an investigation to commence to ascertain the circumstances surrounding his death.

Until his death, Mbelu was married to Eloho, a tech entrepreneur, former investment banker and private equity investor.

They have two daughters.

Reacting, the command’s spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the incident, saying that investigation into the case had already commenced.
