Big Brother Naija reality star Mercy Eke has joined those mourning makeup artist, Ijeoma Nweke, who was allegedly lured and killed under the pretence she was needed for a makeup job.
Ijeoma went missing last November in Enugu and was later found dead. Two siblings have now been arrested in relation to her death.
Mercy Eke has now revealed that the deceased was her course mate in the university.
Calling for Ijeoma’s killers to be brought to book, she said, “Ijeoma Nweke was my course mate a very brilliant young woman, she graduated with a 2/1. Ijeoma was one of the best in my department (Psychology Dept. 2010/2014) we always teased each other and I would tell her ‘girl you must work in my rehabilitation centre’.
“#JusticeForIjeoma. And she will say Mercy this department doesn’t fit you and we will laugh over it, when I heard she was missing we hoped and prayed they find her alive, my heart is bleeding we want justice, justice must be served #JusticeForIjeoma,” she said.
The killing of Ijeoma has generated lots of controversies and Nigerians and celebrities alike are pleading for a fruitful investigation and prosecution of culprits.
