The young man whose name has not been released yet due to security reason was arrested by detectives attached to Area ‘E’ Command Festac Town, Lagos, aftre police had received Cynthia’s BB details from the father for onward investigations.
The video clearly showed Cynthia’s face and how she was brutally raped, while the faces of the rapists were censored. The video also showed how she was was bitten on different parts of her sensitive organs by the rapists and killers.
It was disclosed to Dailypost that even though Cynthia BB was flashed and all information in her BB had been wiped off, detectives led by the Area Commander, ACP Daniel Okoro, were professional enough to use the pin to get the number of the mobile phone.
Sources revealed that one of the detectives had called the businessman in Port Harcourt stating that the Blackberry with him was stolen.
With the few information he provided during his SIM Card registration and the receiving mast, the detective were able to trace his house in Port Harcourt, but did not meet him at home.
The young man later admitted after he was arrested that he bought the mobile through a friend in Lagos, stating that the phone was sent to him after it was purchased.
The source revealed thus: “When the detectives were able to get the pin number from Cynthia’s father, they started work on the theory that all the information contained in her handset may have been deleted.
“But with their knowledge of BB, they knew it can never have two pin numbers. So they started working on that theory, and it worked out for them.”
