“On getting near the door of the private stairway leading with their apartment, I noticed so it was locked from inside, with a stench oozing out.
“On realizing this, I personally invited the police who came and broke the door only to discover their decomposing bodies.
“Their remains were later deposited in the mortuary and I was made to understand that investigation into the matter was ongoing.
“Even the Ughelli Divisional Police Officer was here to see things for himself.”
