Big Brother Naija, BBNaija winner, Mercy Eke and other Nigerians have demanded justice for Makeup artist, Ijeoma Nweke.
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.
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 case was, however, adjourned till Feb. 24, 2021 for further hearing.
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.
