cynthia murder

Magistrate Aka Bashorun of Yaba magistrate court in Lagos, yesterday, granted bail to Orji Osita, a pharmacist with Oxpharm Pharmacy, after he was arraigned over alleged involvement in the murder of Miss Cynthia Osokogu, who was murdered in a hotel at Festac Town, Lagos on July 22 by friends she met on Facebook.

The court had earlier ordered Osita’s re-arrest during its last sitting, after he was earlier released by Justice Adeniyi Onibanjo of Lagos High Court, sitting in Ikeja, but Director of Public Prosecution’s second advice later found him culpable on two count charges of reckless and negligent act contrary to section 249 (1) of the criminal law of Lagos state 2011.

Osita was as a result yesterday re-arraigned before Magistrate Aka Bashorun and would be standing trial before the High Court alongside three other suspects, Okwumo Nwabufo, Ejike Olisaeloka and Nonso Ejike.
