 Groom Who Perished Alongside 5 Relatives After His Traditional Wedding, Enugu State.

   A groom, identified as Obinna Dieke, and his five relatives have d!ed hours after his traditional wedding ceremony in Enugu.

   The Markudi-based businessman and his kinsmen were returning from the ceremony held in the bride’s family house in the Udenu Local Government Area of Enugu State on Friday, August 26, and continued the festivities when they returned to Adani community.

   The next morning, none of them came out of the room they slept, causing concerned residents to forcefully open the door, only to find all occupants of the room unconscious with foamy substance coming out of their mouths.

   They were immediately rushed to the hospital, where six of the victims, including the groom, were confirmed d£ad and deposited in a morgue, while eight others are currently receiving treatment.

    It’s suspected that the victims d!ed from carbon monoxide poisoning because a power generator was allegedly brought onto the veranda of the house where they stayed while it was raining after they returned home from the wedding.

The younger brother of the groom, Chinedu Dieke, has in a chat with BBC Pidgin, disclosed that the bride, Nebechi, his sister, Goodness, and their mother fortunately survived the incident and are responding to treatment in a hospital.
