A man, identified as Mr. Chukwumalu Dominic Onyekwele, his pregnant wife and three of his children was found dead inside their apartment in Amaokpo-Nike, on the outskirts of Enugu metropolis.
According to the information gathered by RapidGist, the family hailed from Ezi Owelle in Idemili North local government area of Anambra state.
However, one of his children, aged 10, survived the mysterious death.
One of their neighbors who spoke to reporters in Enugu on Thursday, said that when they discovered that nobody had come out of the building between Tuesday and Wednesday, they suspected that something was wrong.
“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.”
The neighbor said that it was when they broke the window that it was discovered that the entire family had died and were already decomposing except the man’s first son who was unconscious.
