Two Male Twins Looking At Each Other - Royalty Free Clipart Picture

Tragedy struck on Monday at Osisioma, a suburb of Aba, the commercial capital of Abia State when four-year-old male twins, suffocated to death inside a car parked in front of their house. The boys, Chukwuemeka and Chiemela Okechukwu, the only male children of their parents and who were in nursery school at the Stella and Maris School in the city were with their mother,Mrs. Ngozi Okechukwu in the morning hours on that fateful day as they could not go to school for undisclosed reasons. After a while, one of their pregnant neighbours went into labour and Mrs. Okechukwu who is a nurse, was called in for assistance. When the mother of the twins saw the condition of her pregnant neighbour, she arranged and took her to hospital and allowed the twins whose elder siblings went to school, to play with other children in the compound.

However, as the twins were playing, nobody knew when they left the compound and went to where some cars were displayed for sale beside the Enugu/Port Harcourt Expressway, near the Osisioma Junction. Daily Sun gathered that the two kids opened and entered one of the cars on display, unnoticed and locked themselves in under the heat of the scorching sun. When at about 1 pm the elder sisters came back from school and could not see their younger brothers who they knew did not go to school that day, they raised the alarm.

Their father, Levi Okechukwu Onwusoamaonye from Ahiaba Ubi in Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area, who had gone to work was alerted and he came home. A search party was said to have been immediately raised, which combed the area but to no avail. It was around 4 pm that the children were seen inside the car already dead through suffocation. They were rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors confirmed them dead. When Daily Sun visited the house of the late twins, people were seen in pensive mood discussing the incident.

Their mother, Mrs. Okechukwu, narrated how she was with the twins in the morning of that day before she took a pregnant neighbour who was in labour to the hospital. She said she was still at the hospital when her husband called to inform her that the two boys were dead and that she could not believe until she came back home and saw their corpses.

Mr. Okechukwu, the only male child of his parents who was short of words over the death of his own only two male children said he could only speak on the incident after the burial of the two kids that was slated for today. Meanwhile, the bodies of the twins had been deposited in a mortuary.
