The woman identified as Torkwase Queen Ayakpa reportedly confessed that she conspired with one Fidelis Ikule, Gistreel reports.
The woman revealed that she did that in order to extort N20,000 from her sister.
The 37-year-old hairstylist said she did it because her business was no longer doing well due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Torkwase also added that she wanted to test if her sister really loved her.
According to her, she stated that her sister had turned down her request for money.
