    The incident is said to have taken place around Umunneochi/Ihube Okigwe axis of the Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway, a family source confirmed.

    It was gathered that the ambulance was coming from Abraka in Delta State when the incident occurred.

    A family source said the armed bandits waylaid the vehicle conveying the corpse and dragged out the occupants, abandoning the coffin in the vehicle on the road.

    The source who said the deceased was his uncle’s wife, said the abductors whisked the victims including the deceased woman’s daughter, another relation and the driver of the hearse into the bush.
