The Enugu State commissioner of police, CP Ahmed Ammani, has ordered the state’s Criminal Investigation Department to investigate into circumstances surrounding the mysterious death of six residents at Akutara village in Adani community of Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area of the state.

The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, disclosed this in a statement on Sunday.

According to the statement, “Following the receipt of a report alleging the sudden and unnatural death of six persons and the hospitalization of eight others at Akutara village in Adani community of Uzo-Uwani LGA on 27/08/2022 at about 0930hrs, the commissioner of police, Enugu State Command, CP Ahmed Ammani, ordered the state CID, Enugu, to launch a full-scale investigation to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death and hospitalization of the victims.

The PPRO stated that, “Preliminary investigations reveal that one of the confirmed deceased victims, Obinna Dike, aged 31, attended his own traditional marriage ceremony at Obollo -Eke in Udenu LGA on 26/08/2022 with his relatives and other victims of the incident. They thereafter went back home and continued with the celebration.

“However, the following morning, none of them came out of the room where they slept. This caused the door to be forced open, with all of them in the room found to be unconscious with foamy discharge from their mouths.

“They were rushed to the hospital, where six of them were confirmed dead and deposited in the mortuary for preservation and autopsy.

Meanwhile, eight others who survived are responding to treatment in a hospital in the area.”
