After, the “client” picked her up and was taking her to the venue, she reportedly sensed something and texted the client’s number to her brother.

That was the last she was heard from, until she was reportedly found dead around Maryland, Enugu.

According to reports, one of the accused persons, Chiamaka conspired with her brother to kill Ijeoma for allegedly having an affair with her boyfriend.

It was revealed that Chiamaka lured Ijeoma by inviting her for a make- up job.

On getting there and suspecting foul play, Ijeoma quickly sent an SOS message, before being forced to drink a poisoned substance.

The two siblings went on to pour substance suspected to be acid on Ijeoma.

An eye witness who was also present in the court revealed that he witnessed as Emeka Ifezue poured acid on the body of Ijeoma.

He said afterwards, they dumped her body at Maryland axis of Enugu Metropolis.

Also present in court was the boyfriend who was willing to testify against the two siblings.

The case was adjourned to February 24th, 2021.
