2 people reportedly died while several others have been hospitalized after eating a dead pig during a funeral ceremony at Amaegbu village, Ede Oballa community in Nsukka Local Government Area of Enugu state.

The police said in Enugu, yesterday, that they have commenced investigations into the incident which occurred on October 18, 2012.

The state police spokesman, Mr. Ebere Amaraizu, who confirmed the incident, said one of the deceased was identified as Fidelia Ugwuobi. The identity of the second could not be ascertained at press time.
