It has been reported that a woman identified as Mama Aromain in Ugheli Delta state was burnt alive for using mortuary water to cook the food she sells to people.
It was gathered that the food vendor who happens to be the most popular rice seller in her area was using mortuary water to spice up her food in order to attract more customers to patronize her.
The woman suspected to be in her early 40’s was caught by the mortuary attendant who saw her earlier that day fetching water from the back of the mortuary and followed her to know why she was fetching the water. To his greatest surprise, it turned out that she used it to cook for her customers.
The mortuary attendant exposed the food seller when they arrived at her popular joint in the market. She was beaten by the angry mobs and they set her on fire.
