A 14-year-old schoolgirl has gone missing after leaving her mother’s shop in Ikorodu to go out with her 20-year-old boyfriend.
Bilikisu Oseni, an S.S.1 student, left her mother’s shop in Odogunyan, Ikorodu, Lagos State, with her boyfriend, Wahis, on Sunday, June 24, 2018. Wahis, a motor boy, took Bilikisu on a motorcycle to his new apartment on Igbosoro Road, Ikorodu, and that was the last she was seen, Punch reports.
When Bilikisu did not return home, her mother, Fausatu Oseni, got Wahis arrested. Wahis was eventually granted bail after his relatives promised that he would produce Bilikisu. But he was mandated to return the victim in 7 days or be re-arrested.
However, the suspect denies knowledge of his girlfriend’s whereabouts and says he suspects she’s with another lover.
Wahis said: “On Sunday, I went to pick her from the shop on a motorcycle. I took her to know my new apartment.
“As she got to my place, I got a call that her mother had started complaining and was looking for her. I put her on a motorcycle to return to her mother; I never knew she did not get home.
“If I had known this would happen, I would have asked her to wait a little at my place or take her to their house myself. Some people said they sighted her at Agodo around 1pm.
“One of her friends, Gloria, told me that she made mention of a boyfriend who stayed alone in the Odogunyan area. I believe she is afraid that her mother will beat her up and she went to stay with the boyfriend.
“She must be around Odogunyan. We started dating in January 2018. The police have given me till Wednesday to produce her and I don’t know where else to go. My mother has cried endlessly over this. I have suffered seriously, including police torture. I have spent a lot of money to look for her. I can’t eat or sleep.”
