Three Family Members And Maid Die After Eating Poisoned Food In Enugu by UDOKABESTLUV(m): 12:18pm On Oct 13
Tragedy struck in Ugbo Paul, a suburb of Abakpa Nike, in the Enugu East council area of Enugu State, following the death of three family members and their maid after eating a meal suspected to have been poisoned.

PUNCH Metro gathered that only a nine-month-old baby girl of the family survived the tragedy, as she was not fed with the food.

The victims were identified as the head of the family, Mr Lawrence Chukwu; his wife, Chizoba; their daughter, Nazareth; and the maid, Ukamaka.

A neighbour, Mrs Dominic Gloria, told our correspondent that the family went to bed on Friday without any incident.

“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,” Gloria added.

The mother of late Chizoba, Mrs Elizabeth Nwankwo, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on Tuesday.

She said she received a phone call on Saturday after the maid died.

“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,” she added.

While lamenting the tragedy, Mrs Nwankwo said the remains of her grandchild had been taken to her home town 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.

Nwankwo appealed to Nigerians to come to her aid to take care of the family’s only surviving child.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, said he had no such information.

“But let me find out; I will get back to you,” he added.

He had yet to do so as of the time of filing this report.

Who cooked the food

I'm sure is not the maid.

Someone envy of the family might have snicked into the kitchen to poison the food.

If properly investigated, I won't be wrong lipsrsealed.

Who still hires maids these days?
Having a maid is outdated, cleaning companies are everywhere, you can practically order any meal you want...
And you don't get to have a stranger in your home!!!

Only egotistic people still keep maids, RIP to the family tho

It's very possible that the food poisoning might not be as a result of someone literally poisoning their food.
