In an interview with Radio Nigeria, the younger brother of the deceased, Mr. Johnpaul Onyebuchi appealed to human rights activists and the Government to come to their aid and ensure that justice prevailed in the death of his sister.
He revealed that the late sister who had her traditional marriage ceremony on the 10th of January this year was two months pregnant before she was murdered in cold blood.
The brother narrated that he made several efforts to reach her on telephone having noticed that she did not come to work as both of them were staff members of a private security outfit in Awka.
