Arịrị egbu o m , Ada Igboukwu killed in cold blood. This is the body of late Chidiebere Iloka, The wife of Hon. Mbazulike Iloka the newly Appointed TC chairman nnewi North Local Government by Mr. Governor. Information from a reliable source especially from her close friends and colleagues is that late Chidiebere has been going through domestic violence from her husband Mba Mba before her sudden death. According to mba mba he says his wife just slumps and died . Ụmụnne m a careful perusal on this video that was taken immediately after her demise shown that she died from massive beaten/fight. (evidence is her torn clothes). I call on Mr. Governor to ignore pretence from political bigwigs and godfathers from Nnewi and seek justice for her sister Ada Aguata (Igbo ụkwụ). Chidi did not slump to dead, she was killed . Her close friends can testify to that and how mba normally brings in girls to her matrimonial home during her working hour. I call on her people and ndị Igboukwu in general to conduct an independent autopsy on her and also consult the most deadly shrine in Igboukwu for justice to prevail on their sister’s death.
