Pharmacists Arrested in Connection with Cynthia Osokogu’s Murder Released!
Counsel to the pharmacists, Uchenna Nwoye told Channels TV that the pharmacists were released based on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecution.
Justice Adeniyi Onigbanjo of the Lagos High court, had on the 20th of November ruled that "there was no evidence where the pharmacists had an agreement with the first and second defendants to kill the late Ms Osokogu."
He further ruled that the pharmacists have no case to answer and ordered that the pharmacists should be discharged.
Counsel to the two pharmacists had proceeded to the High Court following the delay of the Magistrate Court led by Magistrate Aka-Bashorun to grant the prayer of the defendants following the advice of the Director of Public Prosecution.
The Pharmacists were earlier charged with the other defendants for unlawfully killing Cynthia Osokogu by administering her with an obnoxious substance known as Rohpynol Flunitrazepam tablets which was used to sedate her before her rape and murder.
Their arrest was followed by a loud public outcry with friends and family of the pharmacists testifying to their innocence.
Cynthia's death still brings back sad memories. However, based on the Judge's statement that there was no evidence where the pharmacists had an agreement with her murderers to kill her, do you think they deserved to be released?
