According to reports, the man, who was in a wheelchair, and his wife, had their throats slit by their assailants, who reportedly used daggers.

One of the man’s sons had beckoned on a neighbour in the area to help check on his parents, who had not been picking up his calls.

“On getting there, the door was locked, but I was urged on by the son to break into the apartment to find out what was wrong.

“After one of the windows was forced open, the remains of the deceased were found in a pool of blood,” he said.
