Four siblings have been declared missing in Umuahia, Abia state capital, throwing their parents into the abyss of despair and uncertainty.
The whereabouts of the children became a source of grave concern after a Keke rider, contracted to take them to school, reportedly took them to an unknown destination.
The kids whose names were given as Mmesoma, Testimony, Godswill and Chinwotito, are the children of one Mr Chimobi Agah, a resident of Umuagu, Umuahia.
The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Abia State Command, ASP Maureen Chinaka, who confirmed the incident to newsmen, said it was reported at the Ohuhu Police Station on November 28, 2023.
The police spokesperson said the parents of the missing children reported that the Keke rider took them to an unknown destination.
He said ” They reported the matter to the Ohuhu Police Station and the DPO in charge of the division swung into action, searching for the kids in the neighborhood, including hotels.
“Investigation is ongoing on the matter,” she said.
It’s gathered that the father of the children, Agah, is an indigene of Amasiri in Ebonyi State but resides and does business in Abia State.
Agah was said to be in Enugu State on a business trip when the incident happened. He immediately returned to Umuahia after his wife informed him of the development.
It was also gathered that the Keke rider had no prior dealings or no known ties with the family before he was engaged by the mother of the children to take them to their school.
