Parents of Twins Found Dead In A Freezer Stops Police from Investigating incident


Parents to the set of twins whose remains were found in a deep freezer at their home last Saturday in Egbu, Otolo Nnewi of Anambra State, Mr. and Mrs. Nwachukwu Onwe have said they do not want the matter to be made a Police case.
The entire family was attending a burial at their home town in Ebonyi State where they hailed from when the sad incident occurred.
One of their relatives who spoke to PUNCH Newspapers on the condition of anonymity said, “The whole thing is confusing. The man and the wife said they wouldn’t want to make the matter a Police case.
“They have taken their children for burial in Isiagu, Ebonyi State. They rejected our advice for autopsy. We are confused.”
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Mr. Haruna Mohammed, confirmed the story.
He said, “The father of the children is not helping matters. He said he would not want to make the matter a Police case. He has asked the Police to release his children to him for burial.”
Asked whether that would be the end of investigation, the PPRO said, “ No;” affirming that investigation would continue while assuring that the perpetrators would be brought to book .
Peter and Paul were reportedly found lifeless in an abandoned deep freezer in their apartment on Saturday. The situation confounded members of the community, as they suspected ritual killing.
It was gathered that the deceased children, Peter and Paul (6), had returned to their mother’s shop after school on Friday before their mum instructed them to go home and change their clothes before coming back to the shop for their lunch, but they did not return.
A family source said, “The mother became worried after waiting for a while for them to come back as instructed, and quickly rushed home to find out what might have kept them back But to her surprise, she didn’t see any of them at home.”
“The man and his wife, together with some of us, started going from house to house, asking if anybody knew about the children’s whereabouts, but all efforts were to no avail. It was the following morning that the lifeless bodies of the twins were found inside an abandoned freezer.”
