It was gathered that before she was lured to the hotel for the dastardly act on August 27, 2020, the late Miss Nwoye, who was on scholarship at UNIBEN, had opted for computer lessons at a neighboring town, following the outbreak of COVID-19.

On the day she was killed, she was allegedly lured to the hotel by her killers who allegedly forced her to make a phone call to her family members to inform them that she was in danger and needed her ATM pin number to free herself from “kidnappers”.
