Nimota Olatunde, a 15-year-old student at Ceder International College in Abuja, has gone missing while attempting to repair her torn school uniform.
We learned that the student’s disappearance had caused panic among her family and friends.
Juliana Olajide, Olatunde’s mother, who lives in Jos, said on Thursday that her daughter had not been seen in a week after she took permission to repair her torn skirt by the school gate.
“It has been eight days since we last saw my 15-year-old daughter, Nimota Olatunde, who is in SS 2 at Ceder International College in Abuja,” she said.
“She was last seen in her school on Wednesday, April 28, 2021.
“According to the school authorities, she went to sew her torn school skirt just by the school gate.
“According to them, she was permitted to go through the primary section gate instead of the main entrance gate because of the way the skirt was torn.
“Since then, no one has seen her. The school tailor also said that my daughter was not seen at the shop that day.
“So, we don’t know what has happened to her.”
The school principal, Olukotun Segun, said the case was already being investigated by the police.
