Graphic Photos: Horror In Rivers As Man Kills 4 Sleeping Children, Then Hangs Self

It was a horrifying scene Tuesday at Alesa, near Port Harcourt, in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State, as a man killed his four sleeping children, after chasing his wife away, set his house ablaze and hanged himself.

It was learnt that the incident happened around 1 a.m., when the escaping wife raised the alarm that her husband, who hailed from Ogoja in Cross River State, wanted to kill her and their children, but before neighbours could move to the two-room apartment, the deed had already been done.

It was also gathered that the four sleeping children were strangled to death, giving them no chance of fleeing to safety.

One of the neighbours, who spoke in confidence, revealed that the husband was notorious for always beating his wife of many years, with the frustrated woman making moves to seek divorce, which the husband got wind of, leading to the sad incident.
