The actress was murdered at Boji-Boji Owa in the Ika North-East Local Government Area of the state in 2012 by members of a syndicate that specialises in robbing POS operators.

In a statement released by DSP Edafe Bright, spokesperson of the State Police Command, on February 14, a distress call was received by the DPO Owa-Oyibu that some suspects who robbed and shot some POS operators at Efeizomor Street, near Pekky Hotel in Owa-Oyibo, have been arrested and about to be lynched by a mob.

Edafe said a police patrol team was quickly mobilised to the scene where the two suspects, Onyeka Ifeanyi 19 and Bright Micheal Kester 20, were rescued from the mob and taken to the Station.

”Upon interrogation they confessed to have robbed several POS operators and also confessed that their gang members were responsible for the robbery and murder of one Mary Ngozi, a POS operator and Nollywood actress at deeper life road on December 7, 2021,” Edafe said

The police spokesperson added that one of the Suspects, Bright Michael Kester, was taken to General Hospital for treatment due to injuries sustained from the mob attack but gave up the ghost while receiving treatment.
