Narrating his ordeal, her father, Mr. Edward said the incident occurred during the Iru National Conference, on March 30.

“We usually have the 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 with her”.

Similarly, the head of the village vigilante group, Ikpoba Johnbull, said that as soon as the news of the girl’s disappearance broke that evening, he and his men followed the girl’s mother to the farm.

“We immediately mobilised and combed the area up to Izighiri and Uwumuwe, two neighbouring villages, but could not find any trace of her.

“We only found the leftovers in her flask. We informed our neighbouring vigilante groups as we spent that night inside the bushes, but there was no result.

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

The National Youth Chairman of the Community, Mr Donald Egboko, who lamented that his people were depressed and devastated over their missing daughter, appealed to security agencies to help bring her back.
