The Rivers State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP, Angela Agabe, who confirmed the development, said the couple allegedly died after a meal.
It wasgathered that their remains had since been deposited in a morgue in Port Harcourt.
Some neighbours of the deceased who spoke to Vanguard simply identified the man as Thomas and the wife as Beauty. They said they probably died from food poison.
Another possible angle to the ugly development is that the couple might have been strangled to death by unknown assailants.
Meantime, the state Police spokesperson, DSP Agabe has said the last meal the couples had before their untimely passage had been taken to the hospital for analysis, adding that the Police was investigating the incident.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
