They say it’s bad to talk ill about the dead, some may say Cynthia died from too much waka-waka, but probably it was just a young lady having the fun of her life. Here is what really happened.
Cynthia Osokogu had some new facebook friends she had been connecting with for a while. They were two young men and also university students like her. They promised Cynthia a good time anytime she comes to Lagos.
Cynthia was a post-graduate student of Nasarawa State University and was into the business of cloth retailing, and travelling to Lagos seemed like a great idea, especially when it’s an All-Expense Paid Trip.
From the gist, we heard that the guys paid her plane ticket, hotel accommodation, and when Cynthia touched down Lasgidi on 22nd July 2012, they were there to pick her up.
This is the ugly part; one thing led to another at the hotel, Cynthia was robbed of her business money and strangled to death. The two young men left her body in the hotel and cleansed themselves of any trace by deleting her from their facebook account.
Her body was found with no ID cards and her mobile phone had been stolen, they could not identify her or call friends and family, thus her body was deposited in a morgue in Lagos.
But breeze blow fowl nyash the moment one of them answered a call on Cynthia's phone and it was traced down to Festac. Therefore, her missing person’s police report was submitted to the Area E Command in Festac. This enabled her family to find her body in the morgue and also led them to the hotel.
Using CCTV from the hotel, the killers were identified. According to reports, these two young men are university students who have now confessed that they killed Cynthia and she is their sixth victim – the gang reportedly specializes in luring unsuspecting young women, robbing them of their possessions before killing them. Though there is speculation that their motive was ritualistic, it appears that it was greed and their main goal was to rob and kill. The pharmacist who supplied the drugs used on Cynthia and hotel staff has also been arrested. According to Police spokesperson Ngozi Braide, “Six people were arrested on Sunday over the incident and investigations are ongoing”.
Whats the Morale of the story? RIP my dear.
