late Angela were literally tied to each other, with the latter taking
the front seat of the former’s jeep.
Their entanglement was said
to have continued the next day, Sunday, during the ceremony marking the
first Holy and Thanksgiving Mass at Holy Ghost Parish, Umuevu
The deceased were also seen together at the
ordination reception and later at the compound of the new priest where

The late Mathias who was said to have been married for 13

returned around 11pm and told her to go to sleep while he collected
torchlight to see Angela off to her house.
But that was not to be as the duo diverted to Mathias’ semi-completed building.
by her daughter’s non arrival to the house, Angela’s mother called her
phone line but Mathias was said to have answered the phone telling the
woman that her daughter was with him.
Also, alarmed by Mathias’
absence in the house up till Monday morning, his fiancée began to look
for him within the house and was shocked to have stumbled on the unclad
but entangled bodies locked in death.
She immediately alerted
Mathias’ family members who could not believe their eyes. Also, Angela’s
mother who was returning from Morning mass was simply speechless at the
sight of the deceased.
The lady who was on top of the man had
her blouse on but unclad from the waist region while the man had his
singlet on his neck. The two were dead.
Their bodies were removed and deposited at Holy Rosary Hospital, Ogbor Nguru in Aboh Mbaise LGA.
