Meanwhile, confusion still lingers on their death. An eyewitness was quoted as saying by the newspaper: “They were seen drinking and and passing time with friends at a popular beer parlour in the community. It was however confirmed that there were no issue while they left the beer parlour for their home. He had pronounced it to friends that he was going to marry the lady and that their marriage is underway.

The witness continued, “For me, their death was a surprising thing nobody expected. they never complained of an illness. No attack on them just like that they were found dead. Until now I can’t believe it. The wife is a hustler, she sells tea and food supplement around Naze and even inside the town in Owerri.”
