According to an eyewitness, Chief Sylvanus Ani revealed that the couple was seen last on their way to the farm.
“Both of them went to the farm and did not return home, disturbed by this we informed other villagers and we went in search of them and finally found the wife, Ngozi Chijioke lying dead in pool of her own blood with marks of violence all over her body while Chijioke Ani was found hanging on a tree’’, he said.
Also, Hycinth Ogbonnaya and Okechukwu Jude said they and entire villagers are still shocked on how a husband and wife should die mysteriously in the farm.
When contacted, the state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP George Okafor who confirmed the incident said the man may have killed the wife and hanged himself.
“Yes, it is true that the couple died at the farm but I am thinking that may be one thing led to another and the man killed his wife and hanged himself because the area is peaceful, no any dispute in the community."
He assured that the police will get to the root of the incident as investigation into the matter has commenced.
