Their bereaved parents had attempted suicide just as rumour rife that the family was involved in a land tussle and opposition masterminded the poisoning of the food in their kitchen.

But police have rejected the claims insisting they were not poisoned.

“The parents of the children, who spoke with us, did not tell us that anybody poisoned or killed their children.

“The mother of the children told us that the children died after eating a meal she cooked by herself and served to her children by herself.

“So why should we start arresting people on the issue when the parents of the children have not said they were suspecting that somebody poisoned their food or killed their children?

“The six children died after eating their mother’s food,” the Commissioner of Police in Anambra State, Mr. Hosea Karma told Punch.
