A 17-year-old girl, identified as Mildred Ebuka, who got missing on Thursday while running an errand in Lagos, has been found in Bauchi on Friday.
According to the Bauchi command of the Nigeria police, Mildred reportedly left her residence in Victoria Island on Thursday to deliver a wig cap to her Aunty’s friend in the Ikorodu area of Lagos.
However, barely 24 hours after leaving home, she found herself at a motor pack in Bauchi with no recollection of how she got there.
The Bauchi Police announced this development via a statement on its Twitter platform on Friday, August 26, 2022.
The statement read, “The bearer Mildred Joshua Ebuka female aged 17yrs-old of Block 19 Ubandale street Victoria Island Lagos State, whose photograph appeared below left home on Thursday 25/08/2022 to deliver a message of a wig cap to her aunty’s friend in Ikorodu, on the way she stopped a taxi bus not far from her home, from thereon she found herself in Bauchi.
“She hails from Lagos and speaks English Language fluently. Wore light blue blouse shirt and trouser, fair in complexion and she has no tribal mark.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ahmed Wakil, told The PUNCH that Mildred was found in a park in Bauchi.
Wakil said, “The essence of sharing the information is to find her parent. She could not remember anything when she arrived Bauchi. A lady woke her up in the park, and she did not know where she was.
“So, they contacted the police, and our public relations office called my attention to it. That was why I made it public. We hope her relatives would reach out when they see her picture.”
Meanwhile, the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, check on the address mentioned above and discovered that the street doesn’t exist.
