A Little About Cynthia Osokogu Murdered By Facebook Friends
The late Cynthia is the only daughter of a Ret. Major Frank Osokogu. She was a post-graduate student and the owner of a popular fashion store in Nassarawa state, Nigeria.
She met with her killers on Facebook social media site.
Her killers are, Ezike Ilechukwu Olisaeloka, 23, and Okwumo Echezona Nwabufor, 33, confessed to the police that they lured her to Lagos from her base in Nassarawa State under the pretext that they are also into clothing business.
After receiving her at the Murtala Muhammed airport in Lagos, they took her to a hotel in Festac Town.
Eloka said they later put Rohyenol tablet in her Ribena drink and slept with her for about 12 hours.
After discovering that Cynthia did not have a lot of money on her as they earlier presumed, they raped her for 12 hours and later strangled her.
Following the arrest and subsequent parade of Olisaeloka and his cousin, Nwabufor, over the murder of Cynthia, three more ladies came forward, saying they were once victims of the alleged murderers.
The three women reportedly went to Festac Police Command to write a statement about how they were drugged, raped and robbed by the suspects now facing trial.
