Nakeesha Lyles is a security lady at the 221 towers portrayed by Ingrid Cornell.
Lyles was a witness to the shooting of Pooh Blanchard by D'Angelo Barksdale. She was questioned by homicide detective Frank Barlow and identified Barksdale from a photo array. When she came to testify in the trial she claimed that she was mistaken and had misidentified D'Angelo and saw the real perpetrator a week later. It was later revealed that she was paid to change her story by the Barksdale Organization.
She is shot and killed after they realize they are being investigated to prevent her testifying about the bribery. Wee-Bey Brice later confesses to her murder (doesn't actual mean he murdered her).
