The Commissioner of Police in Enugu State, Ahmed Ammani, has ordered the state’s Criminal Investigation Department to investigate circumstances surrounding the death of six persons in an Enugu community.

Ammani gave the directive in a media statement released through the police Public Relations Officer DSP Daniel Ndukwe, on Sunday night.

He also directed the CID department to unravel why eight persons were hospitalised under the same strange circumstances in Akutara village in Adani community of Uzo-Uwani Local Government Area.

According to the statement, the directives were given following the receipt of a report alleging the sudden and unnatural deaths and hospitalisation at Akutara village in Adani community on August 27 at about 9:30a.m.

The statement said, “Preliminary investigation reveals that one of the confirmed deceased persons, Obinna Dike, 31, attended his own traditional marriage ceremony at Obollor-Eke in Udenu council area on August 26 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.”

The statement, however, noted that 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.

While commiserating with the families and friends of the deceased, the Commissioner, appealed to the residents of the community to remain peaceful and support the police with necessary information in the investigation to unravel the cause of their deaths.
