Dogs, allegedly kill, eat up octogenarian owner



THE controversy surrounding the whereabouts of 81-year-old woman, Ms Florence, popularly known as Ada-Young, who went missing since three weeks ago seems far from  settling.

  Report emanating from Ms. Florence’s resident at No. 39 Nike Road opposite St. Theresa’s Catholic Church, Abakpa Nike, Enugu State, a one-storey  building where the woman  lived with dogs numbering about 80, shows that there is no  trace of the woman in the said apartment when it was forced open.

  Rumour has it that she died in her apartment and dogs ate her remains but her tenants who spoke to newsmen debunked it, noting that her whereabouts remained unknown.

  One of her tenants who identified himself as Matthew, said, “For three weeks, I have not seen  our landlady come downstairs. Last week, we started perceiving foul smell coming out of her apartment.”

  He said they suspected she might have died and already decomposing because she’s already old and lived with dogs

  The tenant said, “her maternal relations came and everybody was afraid to enter the house for fear of dogs. They engaged the services of someone who entered the house and killed over 50 dogs of different sizes to gain entrance. All the apartments were searched but they could not find her.”

  Matthew further said the missing octogenarian had revealed to him that she kept dogs because of the continual robbery witnessed in the area since she returned from overseas years back.

  Another tenant, Maduabuchi Ozor, told newsmen that he saw the aged woman last on February 24, with a wound in one of her legs suspected to have been inflicted on her by her dogs.

  “I noticed her health was deteriorating. She could not stand for three minutes before  looking for something to hold or seat on. We perceive odours occasionally when any of her dogs dies.

  “When we perceived stench last week, some people suspected that she might be dead because we have not seen her for over three weeks. On March 5, a man came and introduced himself as her brother. He said they didn’t hear from her and had been searching for her,” he added.

  When the Police PRO of Enugu State, ASP Daniel Ndukwe was contacted, he said police were yet to receive any report on the incident.
