In her words: “On Sunday, 22nd July, she called to tell me that she had arrived Lagos to collect some goods that had just arrived from overseas and promised to come and see me immediately she arrived from Lagos. So, when she did not call me on the day she was supposed to arrive, I called her number but it wasn’t going. At that time I called my husband who lives in Abuja and my senior son to intimate them of what is happening.
“So, I went to the police to complain. But when we called the number again, it was going and someone picked it and said that she would come back. So, I ran to the police and told them everything. They (assailants) also told the police that they cannot speak with Cynthia because she was in the hospital. Not until after two weeks they now told me that I should not bother to call again that she had been killed.”
She recalled that Symbol Hospital, Benin, Edo State, where they told her that Cynthia was initially, turned out to be a fake hospital, adding: “I told them that you people said we should send N20 million but the account number they sent to me was fake one. They told me we have killed her. It was after this that I declared her missing.”
“I fear God so much. Vengeance is for God,” she said.
