The two-member gang of Okwumo Nwabufo and Olisaeloka Ezike charged with the murder of Ms Cynthia Osokogu, a Facebook friend, have been sentenced to death by hanging, reports ITRealms.
Ms Cynthia Osokogu, ITRealms gathered was a postgraduate student of Nasarawa State University, at the time of her death on July 22, 2012.
ITRealms recalls that Ms Osokogu was murdered by the duo convicts on July 22, 2012 at Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Festac Town, Lagos.
Delivering judgment on Thursday, Justice Olabisi Akinlade of the Lagos State High Court in Igbosere, found Nwabufo and Ezike guilty as charged by the state.
Also, the judge held that the circumstantial evidence brought by the state in proof of the six counts of conspiracy, murder and stealing against the accused persons were cogent, complete, unequivocal and compelling, hence sentenced both to death by hanging.
