Five members of a family have been confirmed dead after alleged food poisoning.
The incident happened at Ndieke Umuatuegwu village Okija in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State, just few kilometers away from Ozubulu where gunmen massacred church worshippers last week.
According to eyewitness, on Wednesday, August 9th, the mother of the house served a food she personally cooked to her husband, a commercial motorcyclist when he returned from work.
The husband invited his three children to join him without knowing it was their last meal on earth.
Reports say they started vomiting blood shortly after they began eating. They were rushed to a nearby hospital but none of them survived.
His wife who didn’t join them to eat the food slumped and died this morning, August 14th as she couldn’t withstand the trauma of losing her husband and three children
The villagers assembled their corpses on Monday to investigate their death, probably the traditional way.
