After the traditional wedding ceremony that took place in Obollor-Eke in the Udenu LGA area, a large number of other people were reportedly taken to the hospital.
One of the victims, Obinna Dike, 31, was the groom at the wedding that other people had attended prior to the unfortunate incident. He was one of the victims.
Daniel Ndukwe, a spokesman for the Enugu Police Department, said that Dike was at the event on Friday, along with his family and other victims of the incident.
They all went back to Adani, where they continued the celebration once they got there.
However, the next morning, none of them came out of the room where they slept, which caused the door to be forced open. When the door was opened, all of those found in the room were found to be unconscious, and foamy discharge was coming from their mouths.
“They were immediately moved to the hospital, where six of them were confirmed dead and deposited in the mortuary for preservation and autopsy while the others were responding to treatment,” the statement said. “While six of them were confirmed dead, the others are responding to treatment.”
