It was gathered that she went outside to pack the clothes she hung to dry around 10:30 PM on Friday, June 10, at her father’s house on No. 38 Idikwu Road when she was gunned down.

The gunmen reportedly jumped into the compound through the fence and shot her in the forehead.

Her young sister, Rosemary, reportedly witnessed the agonizing incident and ran back into the house to relay what happened to their father but by the time they returned outside, the gunmen had already fled.
