In a new update, Iloka, who is popularly called Mba Mba, has been nabbed by the Police and is currently chilling at the State Criminal Investigation Department (SCID) Awka, Anambra State, under charges of culpable homicide.
Confirming his arrest, the spokesman of the Anambra State Police command, told members of the public to exercise patience as they wait for the autopsy result to unravel the cause of her death.
