Cynthia's murder: Management sacks hotel staff for negligence

The management of the hotel where Cynthia Osokogu was murdered on July 22nd have sacked all the staff on duty on the day of the murder.

The management of Cosmilla Hotel, located at Lake View Estate, Amuwo Odofin in Lagos, said they sacked the staff because they breached security protocol of the hotel. Not only did Cynthia's murderers check in with fake IDs, the front desk didn't get Cynthia's details, making it difficult to identify her body after her attackers took away all items that could have helped to identify her. She was in the morgue for over 2 weeks before anyone knew who she was.

Cynthia will be buried September 7.

Na wa o. Sad.
And for the pharmacist that gave sedative to the criminals without prescription, I feel so bad for him. But he will teach others a lesson that it is criminal to give non-over-d-counter drugs without prescription, even in nigeria

Eze said...

Somethings are just unnecessary, sacking the hotel staff won't bring her back or anything, just like how they arrested the pharmacist that sold the drug to them that has nothing to do with the murder.
So now if pesin go buy rat poison from kiosk,dem go arrest the kiosk owner?
Anyway Cynthia rest in the bosom of the lord.

I am happy Cynthia and her family are getting justice. However, I can't help but think that this is only happening because Cynthia is a 'big mans daughter'. There are so many other missing daughters and unidentified bodies at the morgue. I just hope this effective investigation isn't a one time thing.
RIP Cynthia.

I can understand them firing security guards but they should leave cleaners, cooks, etc there is nothing they could have done. Abeg, work is hard to find.

Sacking them is a good one. I also think coupled with the sack, they should be charged for lack of due diligence together with the management of the hotel. That will serve as a deterrent for other hospitality business practitioners and make them and their staffers be more diligent. Hospitality business is now a big deal in Nigeria and a regulatory framework should exist.

"The Law" says so!

This is too little too late. Had adequate security measures been in place, at Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, Nigeria, (where Cynthia Osokogu was murdered on 22 July 2012) the killers would never have gone past the helpdesk with fake ids. 

The sacking of the staffs at Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, Nigeria, who were on duty (on 22 July 2012) is nothing but a sad, insulting and diabolical attempt by the management of Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, Nigeria, to distance their silly backside from blame. The management of Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, Nigeria, should be sacked and jailed for at least 10 years each. 

The staffs who were on duty on the day of the murder of Cynthia Osokogu were complicit in the heinous crime and should be jailed for 20 years each. I believe other guests have been murdered in that same hotel before and their bodies abandoned in morgues, etc. 

The owner of Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, Nigeria, and board of directors should be jailed for at least 5 years each and banned for 300 years from operating a licensed premises and / or acting as company directors. Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, Nigeria should be closed down and demolished. 

The owners of Cosmilla Hotel, Lake View Estate, Amuwo Odofin, Lagos, Nigeria, should pay immediate 100 billion Naira cash compensation to the parents of Cynthia Osokogu. By bankrupting and making an example of Cosmilla Hotel, it's owners, directors and management staffs, it'd serve as an effective deterrent to others. 

The killers of Cynthia Osokogu should hanged, after 50 years of solitary confinement and hard labour - no parole or / and forgiveness. May each one of them rut in everlasting HELL. 

RIP Cynthia Osokogu.

on 20th of August, a policeman walked into oxpharm pharmacy where my nephew, chukwunonso Maduakor worked as an intern. he asked for the drug Rohypnol Flunitrazepam and chukwunonso demanded for a doctor's prescription, but the man pleaded with him on the grounds that he had an accident and needed the drug to be able to sleep. Nonso said he felt the man who looked clean and responsible, didn't look like someone who would abuse the drug and thus, sold it to him. suddenly, plain clothed policemen swooped on him, manhandled him and went away with him to festac police station. he was thereafter arraigned in court alongside his colleague, osita, who the police accused of selling the drug to the murderes of cynthia. Nonso was on monday paraded as one of the killers of cynthia alongside the known murderes. I ask, is that justice? Nonso the best graduating student of Pharmacy dept of Igbinedion University 2011, Nonso, President of Pharmacy student fellowship, in his time and a youth pastor at the Redeemed Christain Church of God, should not be subjected to this horror. please lets help to salvage the future of this young man who is being held unjustly at the Ikoyi prison. If there is anything you can do to help, please call 08023275269.

evil people for u to see how ready they were to murder cythian to d extent of giving hotel fake adress, gosh who knw how long they hv been planing that evil and were busy pretending to cythian all along,if only cythian were able to read there minds through there misurable faces and knw that there smiles were all fake or maybe they were good pretenders thou ,but cythian made a big mistake by nt writing her name and adress or even next of kin phone num while checking into a room wt 2young strangers thou some hotels dnt hv all that,good to sack those idiots who could nt suspect 2guys who checked in wt one girl and spent more than 12hours wtout demanding for an ordinary botle of water or drinks or even food,cant stp imagining how cynthian was feeling then and how she might be busy praying in her minds wishing and expecting sombody to batch in and save her nt nothing nobody was coming to knock, what a pity may her gently soul rest in peace and may all who contribute to her death neve go unpunished.

yeah i know it hurts dat she is gone but sacking them wont bring her back now couple of people have been sent to the en-employment market. instead wat should be done is re training, and re orientation of staffers in various organizations this should be carried out periodically this will help them function effectively. and girls should learn to shun the lust for materialism

In Nigerian criminal law the pharmacist is an accessory before the fact. Whoever runs a licenced pharmacy or drug store should know the implication of selling legal drugs which fall under "narcotics" to a person or people who are not in the medical field nor with a prescription duly signed by a medical doctor. Rufinol or Rohypnol which is known as "date rape drug" is not an over the counter medication so the pharmacist in the instant case(hoping he is indeed a pharmacist and not a drug store attendant/salesman, not that it matters) ought to have suspected foul play when a person who doesn't fall under the group of people who can purchase said medication, asks to buy that drug. Unlike rat poison which the name itself suggests the use and has no restriction by law to the sale, rufinol used/sold illegal is a criminal offence punishable by law.

why sack the staff @ the hotel,did they lure cynthia to the hotel and the pharmacist,did he knw wht the guys intended to do with the drug,well the truth is cynthia shld hav told her parents before travelling,and even @ dat she shldnt hav gone to meet pple she met on a social network without security,and imagine she dosent even knw the guys,wht was she tinking,well its a tragedy,but say the truth cynthia is also to blame for wht happened to her,and her parents its just so sad,RIP cynthia.

eshe said...

all the staff in the hotel including the owner should be investigated, the owner of the hotel must have suspected that some of his staff could have been involve in the crime, because those criminal must have been regular visitor to the hotel and he is trying to separate is hotel buiz from other culprit that might arise.

R.I.P dear. Assuming it hapened in the states, this kind of tragedy, would have been put up in investigation discovery. Where pple can watch nd learn. Anyway, the God of justice is alive .
