A 15-year-old girl, Miss Chioma Rita Clement has been reportedly abducted by some unidentified persons on her way to sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) in Agidingbi, Ikeja, Lagos State.
According to the family members of the teenager, she has not been seen since last Thursday when she was kidnapped by some unidentified persons on her way to sit for the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Exams.
It was gathered that Rita, who lived with her relatives at Gboyega Kilo Street in the Ojodu Berger area, and had UTME registration number 65061660GJ, was to sit for the exam organised by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) at 6.30am on that fateful day (March 10) but had never returned afterward.
It was also learnt that the teenager had left home around 5.30am for her centre at Agidingbi Secondary School – International office, on Plot B, Lateef Jakande Road, Agidingbi, Ikeja.
At about 5pm that same day, Miss Clement sent a text message to her mother’s mobile phone, raising the alarm that she had been abducted and she did not know the location where she was taken to.
She wrote, “Mummy, they took my phone and beat me up inside the bus. Mummy, I don’t know where they took me to. They made me sleep and said they will kill me if I ran.
“Someone gave me my phone, saying I must return it before they came back. Mummy, please save me, please.”
It was through the text message that the family got to know that Clement was not missing, but abducted.
Meanwhile, the matter has been reported at the Ojodu Police Division on Friday and then transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja.
It was learnt that the Divisional Police Officer in Ojodu took the family members to the SARS office, Ikeja, on Monday and the SARS commander assured them that he would detail his men to rescue the girl.
However, the family had yet to hear from the police as of Wednesday.
