A Nigerian woman, who is residing in Okenne, Kogi State, has cried for help in finding her daughter.

She cried out that her 32-year-old daughter, Hamidat Abdulrafiu, who left home to meet a customer at Lokoja, the Kogi State, on June 18, 2024, has been missing.

Hamidat’s mother, Mrs Ramot Yakubu disclosed this to City Round, adding that her daughter’s number has not been reachable since June 19.

Mrs Ramot noted that Hamidat was traced to Abuja but there was no report of kidnapping or accident as all efforts to get her back have not yielded any positive results despite reporting at the police station.

She said, “Hamidat is a businesswoman who sells unisex clothes and she normally travels to Lokoja to go and meet her customers and collect money for goods they might bought in credit.

“When she got to Lokoja, she called me that she was there. And it was later in the morning on the 19th when I started chatting with her and there was no response that I sensed trouble. I dialled her number and it was not reachable throughout that day up till now.

“I have another daughter at the Federal University, Lokoja, so I called her if her elder sister was at her place but she said no.”

She said her friend who stayed in her place returned from Abuja on the 19th as well and it was people in the compound that said she left around 8:00 pm on the 18th after receiving a call.

According to her mother, the people in the compound said she did not even eat the food that she sent someone to buy for her. They saw her bathing soap, body cream, and the clothes she wore on her arrival in the room where she kept them and the food bought for her untouched.

When asked if there have been calls from anywhere demanding for ransom or making threats, Mrs Yakubu said there was none.

A police officer from Adavi Police Divisional Headquarters in the state, John Stephen, confirmed the incident, stating, “According to her family, nothing of such has not happened where she would go for days without returning home.”
