She was reported to have gone to the market to buy some items for the wedding but never made it back home.

According to new reports, her corpse has been found and exhumed from a shallow grave in a neighbouring local government to Otukpo last week.

It was gathered that it was a commercial motorcyclist who disclosed where she was allegedly killed and buried by her fiancé for ritual purposes.

According to the source,

“An okada man who knew what happened to late Cynthia Onche went to her family members and gave them the news.

He led them to arrest her proposed Igbo husband who led the police to Ogun State where they arrested a native doctor, a Yoruba man, who performed the ritual at Obi Local Government Area before he later relocated to the South West. Both the proposed husband and the native doctor have confessed to committing the crime and are presently in police custody in Otukpo.”

Meanwhile, the deceased was laid to rest on Tuesday, June 1st, 2021, at Otukpo-Icho, in Otukpo.
