Family of 8 Die Mysteriously After Attending Mother’s Burial

Family of Nine Die Mysteriously after Attending Burial Ceremony Tragedy struck Sunday morning at Umuakoro Village in Emekuku Owerri North Local Government Area of Imo state when 9 persons, including 8 members of the same family were found dead at their residence in the early hours of the day.

Report says Mr. Pascal Njoku who worked and resided in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state, had come back home for the final burial ceremony of his mum who died some months ago. He was accompanied by his wife, 5 children, his sister-in-law and her son. Shortly after the burial on Saturday, they all went to their respective rooms to sleep.

Unfortunately, all eight of them were found dead in the early hours of Sunday.

The Njoku’s children who died along with him were Ebere, Ifunanya, Chibueze, Jackline and Uchechi.

A member of the bereaved family, Mrs. Christiana Uba, who is married to an indigene of Umualum Uratta in the same local government area who came for the funeral of their mother along with her friend, Mrs Catherine Ahunonu, also died along with her.

As at press time, the cause of their death could not be ascertained. But sources said their mouths were all foaming profusely when the bodies were brought out of the rooms.

The Imo State Commissioner of health Obi Njoku, who visited the scene of the occurrence said from the foaming found in their mouth, there is a possibility that they might have died of food poisoning.

Njoku added that only autopsy could ascertain the true cause of their death.

    The Perpetrator must be brought to book. why should a person want to wipe out a whole family from the face of this earth. Wickedness is real and there is no peace for the wicked says the holy book. the person that did that will never know peace and all his family until he or she confess and run nicked in a market place. RIP Amen
