The suspects involved in the murder of Cynthia Osokogwu have pleaded guilty to the six-count charge brought against them.
All moves by the defence team to stall the trial were frustrated by presiding justice Olabisi Akinlade of the Lagos high court, Ikeja, who promptly took the testimony of the first prosecution witness after the arraignment of the four suspects in the case.
The late Cynthia died after she was poisoned, raped and strangulated to death by two of the men, Okwumo Nwabufo and Ezike Olisaeloka. The court has, however, granted bail to the 3rd and 4th defendants in the case, while the 1st & 2nd who actually committed the offence of murder are still remanded at the Kirikiri prison in Lagos. The trial continues on the 22nd of February.
