Some residents of Yan Awaki area of Unguwa Uku, Nasarawa LGA of Kano State, have discovered decomposing corpses of a woman and her son lying under a mosquito net in their home.
Residents said they did not see Aisha Ishaq for three days and were concerned about her whereabouts.
Stench oozing out of her apartment gave worried neighbours the inkling that something was amiss. On getting into her apartment forcefully, the concerned neighbors found the corpses of the nursing mother and her six-month-old son.
A leader in the community, Alhaji Ali Abdullahi Usman, said the Aisha was found three days after she actually died.
He said he informed the police of the deaths, before they brokw down the door to their apartment to gain access.
” We found her and her son dead inside the mosquito net on her bed. Her body was already rotten.
“For her son, although he too died, his body didn’t decay. It seems he died a day ago or so. He was suspected to have died of hunger because the mother died and there was no food to eat,” he said.
In addition, Abubakar Muhammad, also the deceased’s neighbour, said her husband, Abubakar Muhammad, traveled despite knowing she was ill.
