Cynthia Osokogu's Facebook Killers Sentenced To Death By Hanging
Delivering her judgement, Justice Olabisi Akinlade declared that after carefully analyzing the evidence presented before the court, testimonies of prosecution witnesses, and confessional statements the deceased made to the police, she was left with no doubt that the accused were guilty of killing Ms. Osokogu.
She also found the duo guilty of the first and third charge – conspiracy to commit murder and conspiracy to steal.
Orji Osita, a pharmacist, who was initially released unconditionally but rearrested again, was discharged and acquitted of the charge of recklessness and negligence for selling drugs without prescription which the accused used in drugging the deceased.
