According to her, when her sister got to the entrance of the MTN office at the Market Circle, some guys who were standing by stopped and asked if she was the one coming for the MTN job interview.
“My sister claims she answered in the affirmative and they asked her to join them in a Taxi to a certain location for the interview and that was all” she sobbed as she explained further.
