Woman Who Killed Make Up Artist Sentenced To Death By Hanging In Enugu

Chiamaka Ifezue has been condemned to death by hanging by an Enugu State High Court for the murder of Ijeoma Nneke, a 27-year-old cosmetics artist.

The ruling was handed down by Honorable Justice Kenneth Okpe on Wednesday, February 7, 2024, during a two-hour session.

Ifezue was found guilty of forcing the victim to ingest a deadly chemical, resulting in her death.

According to News360 Info, on November 11, 2020, Ijeoma vanished from her house after departing for a job.

Her mutilated corpse was later found around Maryland in Enugu metropolis on November 16.

Ifezue and her brother, Chukwuemeka, were arrested and arraigned before the court on a two-count charge bordering on conspiracy and murder in 2022.

They were accused of forcing Nneke to drink a poisonous substance that caused her death.

Justice Okpe discharged Chukwuemeka following a no-case submission pleaded by the defence counsel, Chuma Oguejiofor.

In discharging Chukwuemeka, the trial judge held that there was no evidence that he participated in the crime.

However, delivering the final judgement on the case, Justice Okpe said the prosecution proved the case of murder against Ifezue beyond a reasonable doubt.

The court consequently found Ifezue guilty of murder and sentenced her to death by hanging.
