Couple, 3 children found dead in Enugu


There was tension in Enugu State as residents of Amaokpo Nike village, Enugu East Local Government Area, Enugu State, on Wednesday, discovered the decomposing corpses of a man, his pregnant wife and three of his four children inside his apartment.

It was gathered that the only surviving child was unconscious when they broke the door.

A resident, who spoke to a News Agency on the condition of anonymity, disclosed that they were worried when they noticed that nobody had come out of the building between Tuesday and Wednesday and suspected something was wrong. So, they started dialing the man’s phone number which rang many times without response.

According to him, “this is mysterious. We discovered that nobody had come out of the man’s apartment for two days and we called his number without answering.
