Delta State Police said that the Udogi Eguke and Ese, were found dead under mysterious circumstances inside their apartment located on Makolomi Street.
The owner of the apartment, Chief Alfred Onavwa, said that a concerned neighbor called him to check on the couple after not seeing them for several days.
Onavwa approached the couple’s door and called Eguke’s mobile phone. Onavwa heard the phone ringing inside the apartment, but his tenant did not answer it.
Onavwa also realized that a bad odor is coming out from the apartment. That is when he called the police, who arrived at the scene and broke down the door.
The couple was found dead on the living room floor of the apartment. Police are investigating the case as a double murder. So far, no arrests have been made.
The couple was scheduled to get married in just 14 days.
