Her cousin (name withheld) told TNG: “We were surprised when we saw her corpse at FMC with a very deep hole in her forehead connoting an attack because such a hole cannot be as a result of a fall.

“One of the officers investigating the case told us this is a clear case of a murder because of that visible hole on her forehead.

“Tega is not known to be violent and how can she get herself drunk then suddenly fell down and gave up the ghost just like that.

“We are not going to allow the matter to lie low because you can’t just take somebody’s life in the name of love.
