The 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.

But her corpse had been found in a mortuary. It was learnt that 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.”


Investigations revealed that policemen had interrogated some employees of the hotel and had arrested some suspects after the hotel management presented CCTV footage of the culprits while entering her room.

The culprits were said to be the same people who actually paid for her flight ticket to Lagos.

Police sources said the culprits belong to a syndicate that specialised in luring young women to Lagos for “evil purpose”. Six people had been arrested and were being interrogated by the police.
