News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the gruesome incident which happened in the Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State, has thrown the community into horror and the residents are wondering what could have led Uzo into committing such an abominable act.

The State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) DSP Ebere Amaraizu who confirmed the tragedy, said that the tragic incident occurred on November 15, 2016, at the couple's residence at Nchantancha-Nike area of the state.
