Cynthia Osokogu’s Killers to Die

A Lagos State High Court Thursday sentenced the killers of Cynthia Osokogu to death.

Ms Osokogu, a postgraduate student, was murdered by her Facebook friends Okwumo Nwabufo and Olisaeloka Ezike on July 22, 2012, at Cosmilla Hotel, Lakeview Estate, Festac Town, Lagos.

Delivering the judgment, Justice Olabisi Akinlade said the court found the accused guilty as charged by the state.

He held that the circumstantial evidence brought by the state to prove the six counts of conspiracy, murder and stealing against the accused persons were cogent, complete, unequivocal and compelling.

Okwumo Nwabufo and Olisaeloka Ezike were sentenced them to death for murder.
