    Three family members and their maid have died after eating a meal suspected to have been poisoned.

    Only the family’s nine-month-old baby girl survived the sad occurrence, which occurred in Ugbo Paul, a suburb of Abakpa Nike, in the Enugu East council area of Enugu State.

    Those who died have been identified as Mr. Lawrence Chukwu; his wife, Chizoba; their daughter, Nazareth; and the maid, Ukamaka.

    Their neighbor, Mrs. Dominic Gloria said;

    “We woke up on Saturday morning and found the family members struggling for life. We didn’t know what was wrong with them and they were immediately rushed to the 82 Division Army Hospital. Later that day, their maid died.

    “After a series of tests, we learnt that the food they ate before they went to sleep on Friday night was contaminated with a poisonous substance. Unfortunately, all efforts to save them failed, as the man and his wife died on Saturday, and on Tuesday morning, their two-year-old daughter equally died.”

    Mother of late Chizoba, Mrs. Elizabeth Nwankwo, confirmed the incident and told the publication;

    “So, when I got there, I saw my daughter and her husband lying speechless. I took the remains of the house help to her parents for burial and before I came back, my daughter and her husband had equally died. This morning (Tuesday), their two-year-old daughter that I was hoping would survive died.”

    Mrs. Nwankwo said the remains of her grandchild had been taken to her hometown in Ameta Mgbo, in the Awgu LGA of Enugu State for burial, while the bodies of the couple were in a morgue.

    She said the hospital informed her that the food the family ate before going to bed was contaminated with a poisonous substance.

      Why are people from the south are dying of food poisoning? I suspect foul play. This is the fourth incident within two months.
