Upon her arrival at the residence, she said there was a foul odour but that her car was nowhere in sight.

After involving the police;
“They went in; they brought out my sister, wrapped in her centre rug. She was smelling already. That means the smell I was perceiving (the day before) was my sister. She had been there for days, smelling! That was how we took her to Gwagwalada Hospital and deposited the body”
