A popular food seller in Ughelli, Delta State was set ablaze by angry mob following accusations that she uses water from the mortuary to prepare her food.
The lady popularly known as ‘Mama Aroma’ is known for her delicious meals that are always in high demand.
Before her terrible demise, Mama Aroma reportedly sold her delicious Banga rice on a truck in the market where customers form long queues to get a taste of her food.
A local media outlet reported that a mortuary worker who had been seeing her come to the mortuary at night to fetch the water which was used to bath dead bodies decided to monitor her to ascertain what she uses it for.
The food vendor got into trouble when the said mortuary worker followed her to her canteen in the market and raised alarm, prompting the youth to subject her to instant jungle justice.
Some angry residents who had consumed her food pounced on her and beat her up before setting her ablaze.
