JOGOOMTUNDU, this is a must watch!
Nigerian filmmaker Stanlee Ohikhuare and TV personality/model Zainab Balogun collaborate on an emotional short film – Verdict.
The 9-minute clip is based on the death of LaVena Johnson, a 19 year old African-American girl who enlisted in the army and died 8 weeks after she was deployed to Iraq.
It was nine days to her 20th birthday.

Her death was brutal, she was hit in the head with a blunt instrument, her nose was broken, her elbow distended, and her clothes had debris indicating she had been dragged from one location to another.
The US army ruled her death a suicide but when her father saw her body in funeral home, he decided to investigate. They claim that LaVena shot herself with her M-16 gun, but the gunshot was on the left side of her head, LaVena was right handed.
CBS News paid for a second autopsy. After body was exhumed, it was discovered that parts of her tongue, vagina  and anus were missing and her neck was broken – all which was not reported om autopsy.
The video is so emotional. Zainab clearly proves she is an actress to watch out for and Stanlee as an exceptional filmmaker.
