Court sentences killer of Enugu-based makeup artist to death by hanging

An Enugu State High Court on Wednesday sentenced Chiamaka Ifezue to death by hanging for killing  an Enugu-based makeup artist, Ijeoma Nweke.

The court, presided over by Honourable Justice Kenneth Okpe, in a two-hour judgement on Wednesday found the accused, Chiamaka Ifezue, guilty of killing the victim by forcing her to drink a poisonous substance.

The corpse of the make-up artist was found around Maryland within Enugu Metropolis on Monday, November 16, 2020.

Nweke had left home on Wednesday, 11 November, for a job but went missing afterwards.

Her supposed client, having refused to disclose the location for the job, asked the deceased to stop at the Enugu State Broadcasting Service (ESBS) bus stop, where she will then be taken to the venue.

Nweke, having perceived foul play, sent the client’s phone number to her brother via text.

Her phones were unreachable after hours leading to suspicion that she might have been kidnapped.

This led to a frantic search for her by friends and relatives until early on Monday morning when her corpse was found at Maryland in Enugu.

Eyewitnesses said that her corpse was mutilated with a substance suspected to be acid.
