A Magistrate Court sitting in Enugu State has arraigned 2 siblings for the murder of Ijeoma Nweke, a makeup artist based in Enugu.
According to the story, a lady named Ifezue Chiamaka and her brother, Ifezue Emeka murdered Ijeoma for allegedly having an affair with her boyfriend.
Ijeoma was declared missing in November 11, 2020 after leaving her home for a makeup job.
Chiamaka reportedly called Ijeoma for a home service and forced her to drink a poisoned substance.
On getting there and suspecting foul play, Ijeoma quickly sent an SOS message to a friend before she was forced to drink the poisoned substance.
An eye witness present in the court revealed that he witnessed as Chiamaka’s brother, Emeka Ifezue, poured acid on the body of Ijeoma after they dumped her corpse at Maryland axis of Enugu Metropolis.
