“We usually have Iru national conference at this time of the year. We were seated inside the community hall when we heard loud wailing outside that my daughter was missing.

“She had left for the farm earlier that morning with a motorbike taking her breakfast flask with her,” he said.

Also speaking, Mr Ikpoba Johnbull, head of the village vigilante group, explained that as soon as they got the news of the disappearance of the girl in the evening, they followed her mother to the farm.

Johnbull also said that the vigilante group immediately mobilised and combed the area up to Izighiri and Uwumuwe, two neighbouring villages, but could not find any trace of the missing girl.

“We only found the leftover of her lunch flask. We informed neighbouring vigilante groups as we spent that night inside the bushes but there was no result.

“We then asked Mr Omodon to formally report a case of missing person at the Abudu Police Division,” he added.

On his part, the National Youth chairman of the community, Mr Donald Egboko, appealed to security agencies to help track the missing girl.

The Divisional Police Officer in charge of Abudu, Mr Iyayi Kenneth, who confirmed to Daily Post that the incident was reported at the station, said that the case has been transferred to the State Police Command for further investigation.

But when contacted, the Command’s Public Relations Officer, SP Chidi Nwabuzor, said: “I will find out from the CID department and get back to you.”
