The decomposing body of a Nigerian woman identified as Uju Onyeyili, has been discovered after over one week in her apartment in Baltimore, Maryland, United States.

It was learnt that no one knew she had died for over a week until neighbours raised alarm about a foul smell coming from her apartment.

Uju Onyeyili, from Abatete in Anambra State, reportedly had an accident two weeks ago, and she is said to have gone home after abandoning her car at the scene.

Neighbours then reported to the police after noticing a foul smell coming from Uju’s apartment.

They also reported that they had not seen her in a week and she needed to tow her car that was involved in the accident.

Police investigated and found her decomposing body at her home.

Unfortunately, no close relative of hers could be reached in the U.S., so her photo was shared online as the police asked family members to pick up her corpse or it would be disposed of by the state.

According to reports, no close relative of hers could be reached in the US, so her photograph was shared online as the police asked family members to pick up her corpse or it would be disposed of by the state.

The statement said; “The woman in this picture is an indigene of Anambra State. Her name is Uju Onyeyili from Abatete. She lived in Baltimore, MD and passed on last week. The police and coroner’s office are asking for family members to pick up her corpse. If anyone knows her relatives, please forward this message to them or the body will be disposed of by the State.

“Apparently, she had an accident a couple of weeks ago, according to her neighbours. Her car needs to be towed because she has not moved it since the accident. The neighbors said they had not seen her in about a week. They called the police due to the odour they perceived coming out of her apartment.

“Please, let’s all make sure we have someone we can talk to or check in with daily. If you don’t hear from them and can’t reach them, have someone close by visit especially if they live alone. JJ,” the statement added.

Onyeyili, a member of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (Olumba Olumba Olumba), was eventually buried by the sect in the U.S.

Her death has sparked a conversation about Nigerians who move to the US and proceed to live an isolated life.
