Heartbreaking: Two siblings arraigned for killing makeup artiste over a man – Nigerians react
NEWSMAN, Enugu – Two siblings, Ifezue Chiamaka and Ifezue Emeka were arraigned on Thursday for the alleged murder of a make-up artist, Ijeoma Nweke at the Enugu State Magistrate Court.
Last November, a missing person alert was circulated around Twitter as users begged for help in finding Ijeoma Neke who left home on Nov 11, 2020, for a makeup job and wasn’t seen again.
The Make up artist was allegedly killed for having an affair with Chiamaka’s boyfriend.
It was reported that Chiamaka lured Ijeoma (the Makeup artist) by inviting her for a makeup job.
On her arrival, Ijeoma suspected foul play and immediately sent an SOS message to a friend, before she was forced to drink a poisoned substance.
The siblings also reportedly poured acid on Ijeoma and dumped her corpse at Maryland axis of Enugu Metropolis.
In a viral video, Ijeoma’s mother was seen raining insults at the siblings as they were taken away from the court.
The story of her death has, however, garnered sympathy and there are now calls for justice from well meaning Nigerians who have condemned the act on social media.
I just watched the most heartbreaking video today, no mother/father or anyone deserves to go through the pain of losing someone this is so sad #JusticeForIjeoma
