Remains of a man, his pregnant wife and three children have been found in their home in Enugu State. The man that was identified as Chukumalu Onyekwele and his family members died mysteriously, leaving behind one of his children who luckily survived the unfortunate incident.
According to the account of a neighbour who pleaded anonymity while speaking with newsmen, suspicion started when it was noticed that no-one had come out or gone into Chukumalu’s house since Tuesday until Thursday when the sad reality of their statuses was discovered.
“We noticed that nobody has come out of the apartment for days, whereas his vehicle was parked outside.“So, we started dialling the man’s phone number, which rang without response.
“We decided to transport the corpses to a Hospital, close to the local government secretariat but they were rejected. So, we left them in the vehicle till this morning when we informed the state ministry of health whose officials came this morning and took the corpses to the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Enugu mortuary. They were also here this morning to decontaminate the man’s compound,”
The neighbour who hinted that they had to break the windows know the actual state of things said the only ten years old surviving son of the man was found unconscious.
While the state commissioner of police, Ahmad Abdurrahman, confirmed the incident, a relative of the deceased said the only serving son is recuperating at a hospital in Enugu.
