Facebook murder: ‘I was a victim of Cynthia’s killers’

A model, yesterday,
showed up at the
headquarters of Lagos
State Police Command
in Ikeja, claiming she
was a victim of the two
undergraduates, who
confessed to have
killed Cynthia, the only
daughter of Gen. Frank
Osokogu(rtd), in a hotel
located in Lake View
Estate in Amuwo
Odofin, Lagos.
The lady, whose
identity could not be
ascertained, arrived the
Police Command at
noon, demanding to
speak only with the
Commissioner of Police,
Mr. Umar Manko.
She was directed to the
CP’s waiting room
before being ushered
to the CP’s office,
where she described
herself as a model.
She reportedly told the
CP that she was at the
Command in respect of
the suspects. She said
the two
undergraduates,
Nwabufo Okwumo,
and his cousin, Odera
Ezekiel, were the same
persons that
dispossessed her of her
belongings in a hotel in
Festac.
However, Vanguard
could not get a
detailed account of her
ordeal in the hands of
the suspects, as the CP
was said to have
immediately directed
her to the Area E
Commander, Mr. Dan
Okoro, who led the
team of investigators
that uncovered the
suspects’ activities.
When contacted, the
Command’s boss
confirmed the visit,
explaining that he
directed her to the
Commander so that
she could physically
identify the suspects.
He called on other
females, who had
fallen victims to show
up.
He said: “Other victims
are advised to show up
so that if there is any
need to expand our
investigation, we will
do so.”
Meanwhile, when
Vanguard, yesterday,
visited hotel in Lake
View Estate, where the
post-graduate student
of Nassarawa State
University met her
sudden end, no one
could offer
explanation.
Rather, a private
security guard claimed
that none of the
managers was around,
and referred the
reporter to the Police.
