She added that nobody knows who committed the heinous crime.
"My mum, Late Lolo Ethel Ifunanya Nwaogu was murdered 12 years ago... in my village.... the same Umuomumu Mbieri with the late Chuks Okebata and the mystery surrounding her murder is yet to be unravelled."
"2 years earlier, I witnessed the first and only armed robbery attack in my life! 14 boys, armed to their teeth.... 2 hours of torture..... same village! My dad was finally shot on his right knee. Took him 2 years to get on his feet again. Mum only visited the village to get people to fix the barb wire fence they damaged and through which they had access into the compound, it was in preparation for a grand thanksgiving on my dad's behalf.... she never came back!"
"I don't go there anymore, my kids haven't even been there."
"I have been traumatised for some days now. Is it a crime to visit one's village? Is it? Will Umuomumu Mbieri continue to loose great people?"
"I really do hope our security agencies get to work and expose the masterminds behind these senseless and malicious killings."
"May their souls Rest In Peace. Still miss my mum and we will miss you brother (like I always called you), father to my little friends and hubby to my dear friend Cyndy Okebata."
