Umuoma Umuorji village, Mgbidi, in Oru West Local Government Area of Imo State, was thrown into mourning when four members of a family died in their sleep under mysterious circumstances on Tuesday night after a relative’s wedding.

The deceased were Mrs. Rachel Igbokwe and her three children: Daniel, Chioma and Baby Igbokwe.

Until their death, the deceased lived in Lagos, but only returned recently to attend the wedding of a close relative.

As at press time, it could not be ascertained what led to their deaths as members of the community were too shocked to talk about the incident.

When our correspondent visited the family of the deceased in Mgbidi late yesterday afternoon, father of the deceased, Mr. Igbokwe, was in a pensive mood to speak.

“As you see me now, I cannot compose myself to speak. Please, bear with me. Policemen have taken them to the mortuary. Anyone who loses somebody like these (pointing at the pictures of the deceased) in this manner cannot talk.”

However, his wife, Mrs. Georgiana Igbokwe, narrated how the incident occurred.

She said, “On Tuesday after finishing our supper around 6pm, I decided to visit my neighbour to collect cell phone charger. As I was coming back, I saw my daughter (Rachel) and she told me she was going to the same place I was returning from. Then I went to my room. By then my husband had slept.

“Shortly, I heard my daughter knocking on my door to ask for a charger. I told her it was late and that she should go and sleep.

“When I woke up around 10 pm, I discovered that the generator had been turned off. In the morning, I went to wake them up because one of my daughters would be going back to school that morning. But on knocking on their door, there was no response. We forced the window open and discovered that my daughter’s son, Daniel, was foaming and bleeding from the mouth, while his mother, Rachel, was covered with the mattress with which she slept.

“We had to force the door to their room open and tried in vain to wake his mother. We also entered the other room where my other children slept and discovered that it was the same situation.”

On whether it could be food poisoning, she expressed doubt, saying “We ate the same food from the same pot before we all slept. That same rice was what we ate this morning.”

Generator fumes might have caused it. Remember she woke up and the generator was turned off, which means the Gen was initially turned on. R.I.P
