The command’s spokesman, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement in Enugu that the investigations were being handled by the homicide section of the Criminal Intelligence and Investigations Department of the command.
“The couple was reported to have been living happily until Wednesday when Francis was alleged to have murdered his 40-year-old wife, Mrs. Ozoemena Uzo.
“Francis was also alleged to have killed himself after the incident,’’ Amaraizu said in the statement.
“It was gathered that on that day at noon, Mr. Uzo had allegedly pounced on his wife over a yet-to-be-established issue and inflicted several degrees of injuries on her. The injuries allegedly brought about serious bleeding.
“She was later rushed to a hospital where she was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty.
“However, the husband of the deceased and alleged murderer was already in a coma and could not talk before the arrival of the police.
“He was promptly rushed to Annunciation Hospital, Emene, for medical attention where he was later confirmed dead,’’ he said.
Amaraizu said that the bodies of the couple had been deposited at the Annunciation Hospital’s mortuary, Emene.
