24-year-old Cynthia Udoka Osokogu [murdered by Facebook friends] to be buried on September 7

Miss Cynthia Osokogu, the victim of an Internet dating transaction, will be buried on Sept. 7 at Bebe, Ovia Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of Delta, the family said.

Cynthia, a postgraduate student of Nasarawa State University, Keffi, was allegedly killed by friends she met on the social media, Facebook, at a hotel in Festac, Lagos in July.

The suspected killers of the young woman allegedly lured her to Lagos on a phoney business deal and killed her in a hotel room.

Mrs Joy Osokogu , who announced the date to journalists in Jos on Monday, advised youths to be very cautious of making friends with people that they did not know.

“The youths should be very careful, especially when they are making friends in the social media. Like we have seen in the case of my daughter, such friends may have ulterior motives.

Osokogu described her deceased daughter as “very industrious, hard working and a respectful child.

“She was my daughter, my friend and my sister. Her memory will never be forgotten because she touched so many lives positively in her short stay on earth,” she said.
