The Osokogu family announced yesterday that Cynthia’s burial has been scheduled for today October 5, 2012 at their family home. The family also issued a press statement that the burial shall only be attended by family members and few other selected individuals.
The statement read: “On behalf of the Osokogu family, I write to appreciate the Nigerian media and the general public for their concern, support and care during the disappearance and death of our daughter and sister, Cynthia-Valerie Udoka Osokogu.”
“Words alone cannot convey the depth of our gratitude for the role you played in finding her and in the arrest of her suspected murderers.”
“My family and I will lay our dear sister to rest by the Grace of God on October 5, 2012 in a private family internment ceremony. You will recall that we had a public service of songs and requiem mass in her honour, we would appreciate if the wish of the family for a private internment for Cynthia was respected.”
Cynthia, may your soul rest in peace.
