Police parade Cynthia Osokogu's killers; they narrate how they raped and killed her

                                                          The suspects                                            Cynthia Osokogu
This is a report from PM News
Two murder suspects who were paraded today by the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja, Echezona Nwabufor, 33, and Ezekiel Nnechuwu Olisa Eloka, 23, have narrated how they drugged the daughter of a retired General, Miss Cynthia Akuzogwu Udoka, 25, and strangled her in order to steal her money.
One of the suspects, Eloka, said they killed Cynthia because they thought she had a lot of money in her possession. But after the dastardly act, they did not find a reasonable amount of money on her.


According to the suspects, “we met her on the facebook on our Blackberry. We invited her to come to Lagos to buy goods at cheap prices.

“When she got to Lagos, we took her to a hotel in Festac. We thought she had a lot of money, but she said she didn’t have any money. We gave her Reflon tablet in her Ribena drink. After this, we slept with her for 12 hours in that hotel. We discovered that the tablet did not work quickly on her.

“We then attacked her, tied her up and used cellotape to cover her mouth. After that, we beat her to tell us where she kept the money.

“When we didn’t get any money from her, we tied her mouth and strangled her and then we abandoned her in the hotel and fled.”

The suspects and the General’s daughter became friends on Facebook and were exchanging messages and phone calls.

She told them she was coming to Lagos. They met her at Murtala Muhammed Airport, Ikeja from where they ushered her into a hotel in Festac town, Lagos.

Briefing journalists on how policemen were able to arrest the suspects, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Umar Abubakar Manko, said detectives made use of the close circuit television, CCTV, at the hotel where the crime was committed to identify them.


The Area Commander, Area ‘E’ Police Command, ACP Okoro added that the suspects who are undergraduates of Nigerian universities were nabbed through the call logs of the telephone conversations they had with the late Cynthia who was a post graduate student of Nasarawa State University.

After the suspected killers strangled Cynthia, her corpse was deposited at the mortuary of Isolo General Hospital in Lagos.

ACP Okoro stated that many ATM cards, about 23 SIM cards, different identity cards were recovered from the suspects.

Police sources said the two suspects will soon be arraigned in court to answer a charge of murder.

Errrr....something is wrong here -->

Suspects:: “When we didn’t get any money from her, we tied her mouth and strangled her and then we abandoned her in the hotel and fled.”

Police:: When the suspected killers strangled Cynthia, they deposited her corpse at the mortuary of Isolo General Hospital in Lagos.

How did they abandon her body in the hotel and at the same time deposit the corpse in a mortuary?

Abeg lets just leave this matter and let the poor girl R.I.P. SAD STORY and Sure one has to be careful on all social media platforms. Simple!!

I'm glad that the wheels of justice has been set in motion.Unfortunately this girl cannot be brought back.

My God! what were they thinking and to everyone who still said Cynthia was a runs girl, hope you feel better now. The girl just wanted a really good deal. These were 23yr old students. What could they possibly offer her. She was a hustle hardworking chick and that's all the sin she committed. Just so sad.

Linda does this story really make sense to you? they killed her and dropped her body in isolo mortuary and another paragraph says they tied her in the hotel and fled>>>>>so what the real story ?

Ahdaisy Jayde said...

What a nightmare! I will keep saying this! This is the endtime, things are only going to get worse for those who do not have Christ! Get born again and saved! And girls we need to be careful! No one is trustworthy, you cant even trust yourself, not to talk of complete strangers. Yes,we cant be too careful but first do everything possible you can to ensure you are on the safe side...then listen to the Holyspirit!

So the 12hr rape wasn't enuf for them,they still went ahead to strangle her....SMH!!!.......this world is indeed wicked.

This is not parading. I only see the back of one beast head. I want to see their faces. All three of them. Wicked souls. greedy bastards. Why kill her. tell me why.

Did they press charges against the hotel workers who got rid of a dead body without notifying the police?

This whol incident has been very troubling to me. This kind of incident has repeated itself worldwide. People should know that they are a lot of wolves out there and it will happen again to any man woman that dares to think that the 'people you meet on face book and BBM are a figment of your imagination. Those two sentence people chatting you up are strangers and should remain internet strangers.

People should not fall into this kind of port hole ....

Beautiful girl. May her soul rest in peace. I hope the baggars get get what is coming to them.

I pray this is what the judge wuld say,"THE JUDGMENT OF THIS COURT UPON U iS THAT U BE HANGED BY THE NECK UNTIL u B DEAD & MAY ThE LoRd HAVE MERCY ON UR SOUL". Foolish pple,this is gona b d end of their lives.

Agora said...

Please Linda, please, .... you need to show the faces of the accused. Publish their faces, please. I feel this is not their first heinous crime. They need to be identified. The public needs to see their faces and maybe come forward with information that can help the police in solving their past crimes. They seemed like seasoned killers and prolific criminals. Death penalty by hanging should be handed to them, immediately. No forginess. If I was a family of the lady they killed, I will have them hacked to death with machete in prison. What the did was evil and they deserve their place in everlasting hell.

Anonymous said...

Such wickedness. However some more questions need to be answered. Why would cloth sellers take a client to a hotel at their expense -assuming they paid the hotel bills? How did they hope to accomplish their dastardly act without getting caught if their interactions on Facebook and paper trails of other payments can b traced back to them? Maybe they are not educated. Are they the same people that paid for her return ticket? What means did they use, stolen debit cards? How was this not traced? Were the stolen debit cards reported to the banks....? A lot more has to be uncovered.

Where were the hotel management when they were moving her corpse.

zaynab said...

She seemed so naïve, and over-trusting, imagine following some guys u hardly knew.
And the murdrers are possesed, instead of them to simply steal from her nd run away, they had to kill her too, they r dumb, now this incident will haunt them forever.
May Cynthia R.I.P.

Sasha Fierce! said...

I still don't believe this story.I have a feeling that these suspects were coerced into making this confession.
CCTV?Well, with phone logs, it could be possible,but I still think that they were tortured into narrating this story.
Wow,it's good to be a very important person in Nigeria.Mere being a General's daughter,pronto,Police went into action.

Can they also look into other cases of people that had lost their lives in such circumstances?

RIP Cynthia.The heart of men are so wicked,greedy and mean. Sometimes,I wonder if God will ever forgive us for what we have done to ourselves in this cruel country Nigeria.

I can't see their evil faces. Where are pics from the "parading "? But these ppl r stupid oh. How can someone looking for cheap stuff , and whose flight had to b paid by them, be seriously loaded? Very foolish things. Ok, fair enough their motive was robbery why go ahead to rape her? This is jst plain evil! These men should be given life with hard labour. They dumped her body in the morgue and just carried on with their lives, looking for next victims. Smh! I'm glad they got caught alive to tell the story so ppl can stop that runz crap. May her souls rest in peace. (Let this be a warning to others. How can people be so naive in this day and age?! How can someone u want to do biz with go as far as paying for flight and hotel? Shouldn't they b making money from u instead of spending on u?! Why accept drinks from strangers? Nollywood should have taught u better!! Why go and meet strangers without informing anyone? So many questions!!) I'm relieved for her parents. At least they have a body to bury. Poor girl died painfully. :(

Punch says "they belong to a syndicate that lure girls to Lagos for evil deeds". This needs to be fully explained. Who are their other victims? I fear that this case would fade too quickly with little known and little learnt as a lot of such cases do. This sort of crime usually shakes countries for a long time, but not Nigeria. Who is talking about the Apo 7 massacre?

Anonymous said...

Hmmm! Na waoh! People are wicked shaaa! Couldn't they have just stolen the money and left her alone? Worthless animals, clothed as humans!

This report is conflicting. Earlier on it said the suspects fled the hotel and later on said they deposited the body at the morgue. May Cynthia's soul rest in peace in Christ Jesus, amen. This is every parent's nightmare, I pray we never experience such in Jesus name. May the great comforter comfort her family and friends.

Anonymous said...

If Cynthia's dad wasn't a general with connection within law enforcement, they would not have gone all out to track her killers the way the tracked these guys. I mean this is their 6th victim. Are we saying no one declaredne other 5 missing? Or no one cared about their wheaout? They probably told police and police just ignored them and was wasted their time. This reeks of man no man..which on one hand I'm glad thy nabbed these idiots. But on the other hand I wonder how any more evil money hungry fools are getting awAy with this kind of madness cos no one has the right "big" name to leverage law enforcement into an investigation. Rest in peace Cynthia

Why was she killed even after robbing her? These ignominious beasts should be Bound to a wooden cross, With their faces raised towards heaven, And whilst still alive, be dealt twelve blows with an iron rod,
Breaking the joints of their arms, Their shoulders, Their hips, & Their legs!
After which they shall then be raised up to hang until dead!
And any customary act of mercy shall be expressly forbidden the executioner(s) of this punishment. *gutted*

A life for a few lousy quid. It is amazing what materialism has created and continues to create in the world and in particular amongst our young people in that country. Another stark warning is for those who make friends they do not know on Facebook. Even when you know them, unless you are happy for them to know what happens with you etc, then you should not accept them as friends. Such a pity.

I don't mean to disrespect the dead and may her beautiful soul rest in peace. But this is why people should never trust 'friends' they make online! It doesn't matter how old you are or how mature you think you are. This tragedy could have happened to anyone. If you own a social networking account, be cautious and if you must meet up with the friends you make on the site, go with a companion. I'm proud of the police in this case. Let's just hope justice is served and those murderers don't buy back their freedom with some petty bribe.

Dullards, if you had been keeping up with the story you would have known it was hotel staff who found her and deposited her body without contacting her family. No ID was found on her because these bastards had strip'd her of everything. So before you say the story is false, do your research properly.
Oh and Linda, you didn't help matters either by just copy and paste'n

what is happening to us. TO think that undergraduate students will think, and carry out this act eh am at lost as to what is going through the minds of people in the bid to get money. what will they have done with the money? Since when did money become everything. YOU get into trouble when you compare yourself with those who have, and what they are wearing or what car they drive. For crying out loud all fingers are not equal, you dont have to dress a certain way, or carry a particular phone etc to be a person. Lets be contented with what we have and where we are. Greed,envy,jealousy, and lust for material things only get one into trouble. Life is not about what you have. Luke 12:15 says:"Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses. Let him who have ears let him hear. One life is gone, and two more lives have come to the end of their dreams because, of lack of contentment. Ha this life...

the story is not confusing for y'all that are complaining........... the devils killed her and fled, then her corpse was deposited at the mortuary by whoever discovered it...... it doesn't mean that the devils deposited her body after killing her......... and pls pls LET HER REST IN PEACE BIKONU

I still don't believe this story.I have a feeling that these suspects were coerced into making this confession.
CCTV?Well, with phone logs, it could be possible,but I still think that they were tortured into narrating this story.
Wow,it's good to be a very important person in Nigeria.Mere being a General's daughter,pronto,Police swung into action.

Can they also look into other cases of people that had lost their lives in such circumstances?

RIP Cynthia.The heart of men are so wicked,greedy and mean. Sometimes,I wonder if God will ever forgive us for what we have done to ourselves in this cruel country Nigeria.

With all due respect there are a lot of things that don't add up! The fact that she did not have a lot of money on her shows a Red light. Meeting two strangers on facebook,whom she trusted enough to pick her up at d airport is a second red light! Trusting two strangers to be in her hotel room all alone is a lethal red light! Fetac is festered with assorted garden variety criminals! Thank God they gat them.They will be in solitary cofinement until justice is delivered to them! Death by Hanging! A rope strappedtheir neck exactly d way Linda died. May their souls rot in hell!

it is not rocket science to see that the so-called confession was under duress... too much information and unnecessary detail has been included. clearly NIgerian police ( which is famed for having a 100% conviction rate) beat the hell out these guys to give all that detail.... these guys have pretty much implicated themselves for multiple crimes that could have easily been denied and no one will have discovered cos the lady is dead.... God help naija police! i wont be surprised if the real killers are out there in festac town having a good laugh...

I really can't believe human beings would do this to a fellow human being.I hope these animals are hung by their balls&dragged round Lagos till they breath their last.

Bobo said...

Condolences to the family for their loss. Any unsuspecting person can fall for such.

Having said that, the story sounds cooked up to suit parties. The Nigerian police can do anything to frame up or look credible especially when VIPs are involved.

Did anyone notice how fast and easy it was for the police to catch these guys?
Never trust the Nigeria police.
I remember a few years back, having police men barging into my home. We later found out that they needed to parade people as robbers cos the commissioner was worried about the alarming rate of robbery in the neighbourhood.

They came in the middle of the night and took away 3 of us from our house.
Our neighbour, a retired police commissioner and God saved us as we were already labeled as armed robbers caught with several sophisticated weapons on the highway. They had scripted a statement for us stating this and forced us to sign it under serious torture. We were released the next day after the commissioner and other neighbours protested against our frame up.

You will tell a worse story when you are faced with gun totting animals who will go to any length to get a promotion or some recognition and especially when under pressure.

May God help us and save us from real criminals and our "official" criminals too.

Please o I want to ask a question
How can a girl of 25yrs old do such a stupid thing I mean that u chat with somebody on facebook doesnt mean he is still not a stranger ok you went to visit a stranger who u have never seen before u didnt goto a place where people will see u guys since your all strangers,what type of business were you discusing in a holtel room?did this hapen in the day or night????
Second so police can even track such crimes comited in this country through call log from network providers what about the incident of the kidnappers and boko haram?some went wrong somewhere dis is not just business trip alone...how can u accept to go into a holtel room with two men strangers for that maner what type of bloody business is that u cant goto any eatery joint to discuss first before proceeding to holtel?all these are lies period.

1. The Nigerian police actually did a very good job on this. They were working hard without knowing who she was nor d kind of family she came from. Her wherabouts/ death was confirmed to the family only on Monday. So for those saying strings were pulled to get the culprits apprehended,... That is false. 2. For the anonymous who claims her body was mutilated and even went further to say a family member confirmed it.... SMH...This is also false.shame on u and all those that have been spreading that story and sending out pictures of a mutilated body saying it is Cynthia. All her body parts are intact. 3. For those who said and r still saying it was runs.... Bigger shame on u maybe if you, your sister, daughter, wife or friend finds themselves in such situation (God forbid) then ur myopic views on issues may change. 4. For those asking to see their faces, that will be violating their rights to a fair trial. If u wanna see their faces find out the court that will be handling the matter and go watch proceedings. 5. Pls don't be so quick to say/write hurtful/judgmental comments. Bear in mind that It could be anyone.Think of her family and friends reading and hearing all that's being said.... It hurts. Everyone should learn from this and be more cautious.

To avoid this Bar baric act since last year a lady ( Pajin Concept) put together a Party and avenue for Us to meet in a conducive environment. getting to know the people behind all those 100000+ friends you call friends on all social network and driving positive discussion in between .

Such events happen everyday all over the world. People present themselves as what they are not. Cynthia's case has made Nigeria's headlines. May it be an example to all, especially young women.

What I don't understand about this case -- and it's something I haven't heard mention anywhere -- is why nothing was done to find Cynthia's killers until her disappearance went public.

Cynthia's body would have shown trauma from being beaten and strangled. When her body was found, what was done to find her killers?? Not being able to identify her is not an excuse. The police should have immediately explored the hotel's camera footage to track down her killers.

(I am even questioning the 'call logs' because weren't all forms of ID removed from the hotel room?? Including her cellphone? So where did the call logs come from?)

Then again, many commenters all over the internet, not just LIB, called her a 'Runz Girl'. The police and hotel staff probably thought the same. I guess this is not the first time they were faced with an unidentified corpse.

The issue at stake here is that crimes were intentionally committed that resulted in the loss of life. Whether the stories being told are outright falsehoods or half-truths,or there is some kind of cover-up involved, the issue at stake remains that someone lost her life. The only thing that will bring closure to Cynthia's family and the rest of us, is when the perpetrators of this evil act are brought to book by facing the maximum penalty. It is saddening that some ignorant people are ascribing this sort of dastardly act to a particular tribe. The truth is that evil abounds everywhere in this day and age, and it doesnt know tribe, neither is the act of murder peculiar to a particular tribe. The people who did this were evil, pure and simple.People should be careful about meeting strangers becomes the times are evil. May Cynthia Rest in Peace and may the Lord grant her family the fortitude to bear this irreplaceable loss.

''ACP Okoro stated that many ATM cards, about 23 SIM cards, different identity cards were recovered from the suspects''.- It appears the police are going over themselves to make us believe their story in its entirety. I am only concerned that the REAL perps of this devilish act should be brought to book. girls be careful who you trust! May her family be consoled and comforted in their hour of despair.

RIP Cynthia.....Thats a painful story....

I am just confused though....
my questions are...
1. Why go with people you are meeting for the first time to a hotel?
2. Ribena? Did she take an open drink from people she only met that day?
3. she is an educated lady who I gather is well travelled..what cheap goods was she coming to lagos to buy?
4. Didnt she tell anyone about her 'trip' to Lagos?
5. Finally didnt she have friends she couldv stayed wuth in Lagos?

May her soul rest in peace. All these Igbo people can do anything for money. The statement seems fabricated after so much torturing from the police. They still yet to be charged. May God save Nigeria.

Booker T Samuels said...

First of all, I dont believe this was how the whole thing went down. But which ever way I am not going to judge the victim because either way her life is lost and may her soul find its way to eternal rest. And as for the culprits I honestly cant even imagine what sort of punishment would be suitable for them because for you as a person to have had the heart to take ones life then youre definitely not a human being or must be under some kind of influence and victims with such arent normal. I just dont know what to say.

Also I hope this poor girls case acts as a lesson to learn from for all those other girls out there who are hungry for luxury and flashy lifestyles without diligent work. True some do it and succeed but some also tried and ended up losing their life. Please girls be warned and be wise. It all doesnt end with lace wigs, blackberry, iphones or a car key.... I pray God delivers our beloved country Nigeria before itself destructs an touch the lives and mentally of our present and next generations. We are already a laughing stock for other countries out there and its getting more worse by the day. No one has the solution but God. So I imploy all the Muslims, Christians, Pagans to please pray for our country.... Ritual activities are as normal as good morning... Stealing as normal as good afternoon, prostitution for money as normal as goodnight.... hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm May GOD Almighty Save US. AMEN

I can't help but laugh at the comments of some idiots acknowledging their status as runz girls at one point in their life.
Funny, its this same idiots you'll see in Churches screaming their lungs hoarse praying for husband. Please, tell us which man will willingly marry expired goods that his friends have probably tasted.
Erm! I think you need to shut the fuck up right now. Instead of saying you were a runz girl learn a leaaon from this incident of what happens to people who aren't runz girls.

Jojo said...

Linda abeg the writing was NOT confusing! It wasn't ambigous in anyway. Problem is that we Nigerians hardly read things properly. At 1st, I also thought they killed her, fled and then deposited her body at the mortuary. But when you read it well, it says "... her corpse was deposited at the mortuary". It doesn't say "after they strangled her, they deposited her corpse at the mortuary".

Anyways, this just shows that there really is no honesty on the internet! RIP Cynthia
