Friends called for justice for the late Nweke on Twitter and it appears that is about to be served as a sister and her brother have been arrested and charged with her death.
The siblings, identified as Ifezue Chiamaka and Ifezue Emeka, were on Wednesday, February 3, put before the Enugu State Magistrate Court for the murder of the makeup artist.
According to the reports, Miss Chiamaka conspired with her brother to kill her for allegedly having an affair with her boyfriend.

A witness, who was present in the court, said he saw young Ifezue pour acid on the body of Miss Nweke after they dumped her corpse at the Maryland axis of Enugu Metropolis.
Also present in court was the boyfriend who was willing to testify against the two siblings.
The case has been adjourned to February 24, 2021.
