Two siblings have been arrested for the part they were alleged to have played in the death of an Enugu based makeup artist whose death shook Twitter late last year.
Recall that last November, a missing person alert was circulated around Twitter and other social media platforms 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.
Twitter users who knew the deceased explained that she had requested to know the venue where she was to do the makeup job but was simply instructed to meet the prospective client at a bus stop.
She later went missing before her body was found and it was claimed she had been doused with acid.
Friends called for justice for Ijeoma on Twitter and it appears that is about to be served as a sister and her brother have been arrested and charged with her death.
The siblings identified as Ifezue Chiamaka and Ifezue Emeka were on Wednesday, Feb 3, arraigned at Enugu State Magistrate Court for the murder of Ijeoma.
According to the reports, Chiamaka conspired with her brother to kill Ijeoma for allegedly having an affair with her boyfriend.
Chiamaka allegedly lured Ijeoma by inviting her for a makeup job.
On getting there and suspecting foul play, Ijeoma quickly sent a message to a friend, before being forced to drink a poisoned substance.
The two siblings then allegedly poured acid on Ijeoma.
An eye witness who was present in the court said he saw Emeka Ifezue pour acid on the body of Ijeoma after they dumped her corpse at the Maryland axis of Enugu Metropolis.
Also present in court was the boyfriend who was willing to testify against the two siblings.
The case was adjoined to February 24, 2021.
Below are video from the siblings’ arraignment in court and Twitter reactions after the siblings were arraigned.
