#News: Teenager fakes death on social media.

Published

      A teenage girl, Margaret Ikumu, 19, of Oni community in Oju Local Government Area of Benue, has faked her own death on social media to avoid financial pressure from her mother.

        A statement signed by DSP Bala Elkana, the Police Public Relations Officer in Lagos State, made this known on Sunday. Elkana said that Ikumu, through her Facebook account, reported to have died a few days ago and was secretly buried by her two friends, Marvelous Mary and Nneka Buddy, at Ajah area. “The family of the fake deceased further stated that they were able to establish contact with the said friends who confirmed to them that their daughter is dead. “To make them believe that the girl is dead, they sent WhatsApp chats to a member of the girl’s family with picture of a casket showing that the girl is buried.

       “The family also got in touch with a man on phone who claimed to be her boyfriend. He corroborated the claim that she is dead,” he said. Elkana said that the girl was eventually found by the Police to be alive and was working as a home help in an estate at Ajah. “When her employer saw the report of her purported death, they quickly informed the Police and she was brought to Ajah Police Station. “In her statement, she (Ikumu) confessed to have created the Facebook account and posted her obituary with intent to keep her family away from her. “She said that her mother was putting financial pressure on her by constantly demanding that she sends money to her,” he said.

       Elkana said that the girl was apparently bitter with her mother and uncles over their inability to sponsor her education after the death of her father.

Miley Cyrus recently announced her new album Plastic Hearts and it has taken over social media. This album is super personal and pays tribute to some of her biggest music inspirations.

Announcing the new album, Miley revealed that it would drop on November 27, 2020. Miley has paid tribute to the likes of Blondie and the Cranberries on this album as well as many issues that fall close to home, like the 2018 California wildfires. Taking to social media to make the announcement, Miley expressed the emotion and rawness behind this album. Miley sent some mad love out to her fans for making this album and her entire career possible. Reading this post reflects all that Miley has put into this album and gives fans the opportunity to understand and appreciate the process that much more. I began this album over 2 years ago. Thought I had it all figured out. Nature did what I now see as a favour and destroyed what I couldn’t let go of for myself. I lost my house in a fire but found myself in its ashes.

In triumph and gratitude, I present to you my 7th studio record, Plastic Hearts. To be released Nov. 27th 2020.”
