#Tragic: 5 Family Members Die Mysteriously In Enugu.

Published

on

      Residents of the Amaokpo suburb of Nike in the Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State were in tears on Thursday as the corpses of five members of a family, who died mysteriously in their house, were recovered and deposited in the morgue.

        PUNCH Metro gathered that the family of Onyekwere Chukwumalu of Eziowelle, Idemili Local Government Area of Anambra State, were last seen on Monday and were discovered dead on Wednesday morning with their skin already peeling off. It was learnt that neighbours did not know of their death until a building contractor, who worked with Onyekwere, went to keep an appointment with him and found the house locked but the family head’s vehicle was parked outside.

       Because there was no response when the contractor called, he was forced to move closer and discovered the corpses of members of the family in a heap as if they were praying. Our correspondent, who visited the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Enugu, where the corpses were deposited, gathered that the incident shocked neighbours, who came together to break into the house to bring out the corpses.

      PUNCH Metro learnt that the police personnel from Abakpa Nike; the Chairman of the Enugu East Local Government Area, Alex Ugwu; and the United Nations Rescue Mission visited the scene of the incident on Wednesday evening. Eyewitnesses said in the process of bringing out the corpses, one of Onyekwere’s children, Arinze, 10, shouted ‘Jesus’ and was rushed to the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, Ituku-Ozala, where he is said to be responding to treatment. Speaking to journalists at the NOH, the South East Zonal Commander of the United Nations Rescue Mission, Emmanuel Okoye, said someone informed the team about the incident that a man and his family members were found dead and they went to the scene.

      Okoye said the team helped to evacuate the corpses to the mortuary since the police were nowhere to be found.

UK parliament debate petitions on the violence surrounding the #endSars protest in Nigeria

Published

Members of the UK parliament on Monday, November 23, held a debate on the petition to the United Kingdom government seeking a sanction on some Nigerian government officials by the EndSARS protesters over gross human right abuse.


During a sitting at the Westminster Hall, the lawmakers took turns to slam the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government for the poor handling of the protest. The debate for the petition tagged ‘e-petition 554150′ was led by Theresa Villiers, a member of the British Conservative Party. Parliamentarians who spoke raised eyebrows against the defence of the federal government that there was no shooting at the Lekki toll gate.

While describing the “Nigerian government’s violence against its own citizens” as intensifying, Kate Osamor, a member who is representing Edmonton, said the corruption and police brutality still continue. Osamor also described as “undemocratic conduct” the claim by the minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed, that the killing and shooting at Lekki, as contained in a CNN report, is fake news.


The member said:

“The Nigerian government needs to stop freezing bank accounts of key protesters; it needs to stop illegal detentions of key protesters. “We are aware that some protesters have reported facing intimidation and the British High Commissioner in Abuja continues to raise our concerns about intimidation of civil society groups and peaceful protesters with the Nigerian government.” The UK parliament said it would continue to communicate with the governor of Lagos state, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and a top member of the Nigerian presidency.

The parliament concluded that “future sanctions could reduce the impact of the designations.”
