Seven women have reportedly been found dead in a beauty salon in Niger state.
The tragedy which occurred on Thursday, July 30, recorded that the seven women, have gone to the salon in the Rijau Local Government Area of Niger State, to adorn themselves in preparation for Sallah when they met their untimely death.
The spokesperson of the state police command, Wasiu Abiodun, who confirmed this to the newsmen said two of the deceased were married women and five were single ladies.
Eyewitnesses said that the women died from inhaling fumes from the generator used in the salon.
