Cordelia Okonye, the mother of the Nigerian influencer who was murdered by her boyfriend, Austa, has spoken out after she was laid to rest.
Recall that the boyfriend, Killaboi, publicly confessed to stabbing the young lady to death in a series of posts on his Instastories on Monday, July 17th, 2023. He also revealed his intention to turn himself in to the police at the time but never did.
In the heat of the incident, Killaboi disclosed that he murdered his girlfriend because of ‘pain, betrayal, cheating, and toxicity”. However, he didn’t go into details.
Austa, who was only 21-years-old before her untimely passing, was laid to rest on Saturday, September 9, in the Yaba area of Lagos state.
Following her burial, her bereaved mother, who happens to be a pastor, took to her Instagram page to seemingly accuse her boyfriend of purposefully killing her, as opposed to his claim of it being a mistake.
She said if it were to be a mistake as he claimed, he wouldn’t still be on the run even after she was laid to rest. Pastor Cordelia also urged her daughter not to rest until she avenges herself.
“Your killer said he murdered you exactly two months today. He said it was a mistake but left you to rotten and immediately I discovered your body, he ran into social media to write rubbish meaning he killed you on purpose. If it wasn’t on purpose and intentionally, he won’t still be running even after your burial. There is no peace for the wicked! Austa, kill your killer before you can rest. My mouth shakes while I’m talking, my hand shakes while I’m writing and my breath leaves me gradually while thinking of not getting to hold you again. My mum as I fondly called you, it’s extremely difficult and painful to carry on without you. Night is long and so is the day because of lack of your presence. Please pray for me if you love and care for me and if you can help me to get justice for my angel, please don’t hesitate. My pieces is hard to gather up together again”
