This young lady suddenly fell sick and died in Amuzukwu Ibeku, Abia state. Her people from Ebonyi state insisted she was killed by a neighbour, Mama Thankgod. And this happened on her burialday. If nothing happens to the accused after 7 days, then she’s innocent. Though the lady’s kinsmen are saying it should be six months according to their tradition.
