Cases of missing persons hit Rivers


Cases of missing persons have been on the increase in Rivers State, turning the Treasure Base of the Nation to a treacherous place.

Cases of missing persons have been on the increase in Rivers State, turning the Treasure Base of the Nation to a treacherous place.

Most of those whose whereabouts have remained unknown are children between 18 and 10 years.
Available records revealed that in most cases, the victims left home and never returned.

A 14-year-old boy, Master Goodluck Legbosi Moses, left his Marine Base, Port Harcourt home on March 1, this year, for an unknown destination. He was yet to be seen.
Repeated publications and announcements by the Rivers State Police Command have so far drawn blank.

In a similar incident, an 18-year-old girl, Miss Barinedum Jane Yorkrika, left her parents’ residence in the densely populated Diobu area of Port Harcourt on March 3, this year, and never returned.Checks revealed that between January and March this year, no fewer than seven persons have been declared missing from their homes. Twenty others were declared missing towards the end of last year.The development has forced parents to take extra measures to protect their children and wards.

Policewoman, Mrs Ireju Barasua (ASP), has appealed to members of the public to assist the Command in tracing the whereabouts of the missing persons.
She, however, advised parents and guardians to monitor their children’s movements at all times.
