Nigerians on Twitter have questioned the disappearance of a 16-year-old girl who went missing in Lagos over a week ago.
Last Sunday, a twitter user had asked for help in locating his sister’s adopted daughter, who went missing on September 7.
He said the teenager, identified as Victory Bitrus left her adopted family’s home in Jakande on September 7, and never returned.
“She left home randomly and didnt come back till late evening when someone brought her back and claimed she was afrais to go back home after being out for so long” he said.
“While the person was pleading on her behalf, Victory was outside the gate. By the time they tried to bring her in, she was nowhere to be found,”
He added that at first, the family thought she had escaped to see a boy, who was believed to be her boyfriend, but he however claimed not to have seen her.
He said, at first they believed that it was just a case of her running to see a boy and expected that she would be back before night.
“It has been almost a week and she hasn’t returned. A missing person report has been made at Jakande police station. My sister lives close to Admiralty Homes, off new road just incase anyone sees this face around that area. Kindly call 08169705097.”
While many offered their help with retweets, prayers and sympathetic words, some insinuated that the teenage won’t run away from home unless she is being maltreated by her adoptive parents.
