Lovers Found Dead Two Weeks Before Wedding!
The decomposing remains of two lovers, simply identified as Udogi Eguke and Ese, were found on Sunday, days after they died in mysterious circumstances in their Makolomi Street apartment of Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
The house owner, Chief Alfred Onavwa, who shares the top floor of the one-storey building with one of the deceased, confirmed the incident.
He said having been contacted on the absence of one of the deceased by neighbours, he called his line only to realize that his mobile phone was ringing upstairs.
In his words; “On getting close to the door of the private stairway leading to their apartment, I noticed that it was locked from inside, with an offensive odour oozing out.
“On realizing this, I personally invited the police who came and broke the door only to discover their decomposing bodies.
“Their remains were later deposited in the mortuary and I was made to understand that investigation into the matter was ongoing.
“Even the Ughelli Divisional Police Officer was here to see things for himself.”
However, findings revealed that the couple, whose wedding was slated for November 22, had started preparation, with invitation cards already sent out to intending guests.
When contacted for comments, Ughelli Divisional Police Officer, Samuel Musa, neither debunked nor confirmed the incident.
He directed all comments on the matter to the state Police Public Relation Officer, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Celestina Kalu.
Nevertheless, at press time, calls and messages to her phone were yet to be replied.
