One Chikwo Ezinnia, a 13-year-old girl basic 4 pupil, has been reported to have allegedly fled her home with a yet-to-be-identified man, suspected to be her lover.
It was gathered that Chikwuo had come to Lagos from Nneni village in the Anaocha Local Government Area of Anambra State to spend her holiday with relatives, the Okolos.
She however, fled their apartment on Ishola Bello Close, Iyalla Street, Alausa, Lagos, last Thursday when the family were away from home.
During the initial search for her, some neighbours told the Okolos that they saw the teenager walking away with a man in the afternoon.
Ezennia was said to have told the neighbours that her aunt maltreated her and had travelled away for a week. Hence, she would be staying with a friend during that period.
The family has since reported the matter at the Alausa Police Division.
Upon investigations, it was found that Ezinnia had a record of fleeing home to stay with men when she was in the village in Anambra.
According to the girls’ aunt, “Ezennia is just 13, but she looks big enough to be called a man’s wife. If you see her, you will think she is a lady. She just came from the village to spend some time with us and she is supposed to go back this December. But since that Thursday, we have yet to find her.
“The reason I suspect she may be with a lover is because of some recent developments. Just a week before that incident, I travelled to Benue for a programme, and she was alone with my children in the house. There is a phone that my children use which contains only my number and my husband’s.
“But when she fled home and we started the search, I picked up the phone and to my surprise, I saw a string of strange numbers.
“The children said Ezennia used the phone when I travelled.
“I wondered who she might have been calling since she is new in Lagos.”
