Four days after the police paraded suspected murderers of Cynthia Osokogu, in Lagos, fresh facts have emerged on how the police managed to track them down, in Lagos and Nnewi, Anambra State.
It was gathered that to get the true identity of Cynthia, after her corpse was discovered in the hotel, the police had visited the Nigerian Immigration Service office, with a Yellow Form found in her suitcase.
Documentation relating to the Yellow Form revealed the victim’s identify.
Sources revealed that when Cynthia’s family came into the picture, the police collected her phone number and contacted the telecoms service provider to furnish them with the call log.
It was gathered that the police paid particular attention to calls Cynthia received and made in the last two weeks. From this, the identities of owners of the phone numbers were known.
Also, the police got the call logs of the numbers that called Cynthia many times, from which the girlfriend of Ezekiel Odera, one of the suspects and 400 level student of Anambra State University, Uli, was contacted.
Sources revealed that when the girl was called, the policeman pretended that he was the suspect’s friend sent to deliver a message.
The policeman and the girl agreed where to meet, from where arrest was effected.
The girl then led the police to arrest the suspect, who, in turn led them to the home of the second suspect, Okwoma Nwabufor, a 300 level accounting student of the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
Meanwhile, it was business as usual at the hotel Cynthia was killed when Saturday Sun visited.
Efforts to get the comments of officials of the hotel proved abortive.
The receptionist told our reporter that all enquiries about Cynthia’s case should be directed to the Area ‘E’ FESTAC Police Commander, Mr. Damian Okoro, an Assistant Commissioner of Police.
