Cynthia and her Murderers
The Chief Magistrate Court Yaba, Lagos which was filled to capacity on Monday as the Nigeria Police Force arraigned four suspects over the alleged the murder of Cynthia Osokogu, daughter of Maj-Gen Frank Osukogu (rtd.), on July 22, 2012.

The accused persons were also charged with robbing the deceased of her artificial sex toy vibrator, shoes, hand bag, BlackBerry phone, passport, driving licence, three wristwatches, four rings, three pairs of earrings and other properties.

The accused persons: –

Okwumo Nwabufo (33),
Ezike Olisaeloka (23),
Orji Osita (32)
And Maduakor Chukwunonso (25) were charged on an eight count charge.

Nwabufo and Olisaeloka are students while Osita and Chukwunonso are pharmacists. Some of the charges levelled against the accused were murder, rape, robbery, administering an obnoxious substance to the deceased without her consent.

The Magistrate, Mr Olalekan Aka-Bashorun, said the accused persons should be remanded in prison custody pending the advice of the Director of Public Prosecutions. The case was then adjourned till October 3, 2012.

A mini-drama however unfolded outside the court room as journalists and members of the public scrambled to take pictures of the accused persons.

“The pharmacists are not killers. Their charges were only mixed up with those of the other two suspects (Nwabufo and Olisaeloka),” their lawyer said.

Meanwhile, the Osokogu family has said Cynthia would be buried on September 7, 2012 at Bebe, Ovia Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State.

Mrs. Joy Osokogu, said her daughter was “very industrious, hardworking and a respectful child.” She advised youths to be very cautious of making friends with people that they do not know.

She also said, “Youths should be very careful, especially when they are making friends on the social media. Like we have seen in the case of my daughter, such friends may have ulterior motives.”
