Lagos State Police Command has commenced investigations into the death of Cynthia Osokogu, the only daughter of Major General Frank Osokogu (retd), who was reported missing on July 22, 2012.
Osokogu, who was based in Nassarawa, went to visit a friend in Abuja before leaving for Lagos to purchase goods for her boutique.
According to reliable sources, the 24-year-old was received at the Muritala Muhammed Airport, Lagos by unknown persons, who took her to a hotel in FESTAC area of the state before she disappeared.
It was learnt that attempts by family members to ascertain her whereabouts were made more difficult because none of them lived in Lagos.
As weeks went by, concerned friends and relatives sent messages through BlackBerry device and social media about the missing girl, but no information regarding her whereabouts was forthcoming.
Her corpse had been found in a mortuary: family and friends had thought she was missing because they did not know that she was dead.
One of the sources said, “There are indications Osukogwu, who is a postgraduate student of Nasarawa State University, was killed at the hotel before her corpse was transferred to the mortuary. Police investigations suggest that Osukogwu was robbed and killed in the hotel she lodged in by the same people she was supposed to do business with.”
