Another victim of the killers of Cynthia Osokogu has gone to the police. This confirms the confession of the killers that at least four other ladies have suffered in their hands.

One of the men, Nwabufo Okwumo, according to The Nation which interviewed neighbours, wore expensive suits and designer shirts, lived in a duplex in FESTAC and drove a posh car without any visible means of livelihood.

The lady who stepped forward yesterday, a model went straight to the office of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police 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.

According to the Vanguard , the lady 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.”
