News Update: Cynthia's Killers confess how they Raped, beat and Drugged her – Suspects

Echezona Nwabufor, 33, and Ezekiel Nnechukwu Olisa Eloka, 23, the two suspects held in connection to the brutal murder of Miss Cynthia Osokogu Udoka, 25, were paraded today by the Lagos State Police Command, Ikeja. The suspects who are students, narrated how they drugged and strangled their unsuspecting victm in a bid 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 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 cello-tape 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.”

Briefing journalists on how policemen were able to trace and 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.

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

Police sources said the two suspects will soon be charged to court on murder charges.

What a wicked world we live in and how much more heartless can man be? This is indeed a very sad and unfortunate incidence that could have happened to anyone; the case deserves an accelerated trial so the soul of beautiful Miss Cynthia can rest in perfect peace.
