Listen to article

Father of the four children who were declared missing in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, six months ago, Chimaobi Agah, has cried out to good-spirited members of the public for help.

The children have not been located since they were reported missing to the authorities.

Agha expressed sadness over the children’s plight yesterday when he spoke to journalists in Umuahia.

He appealed to the security agencies to step up their search for the children.

The children were declared missing on Monday, November 27, 2023.

They were said to have boarded a tricycle at Umuagu Ibeku to go to school at Great Ambassadors College, Nkwoegwu, in the Umuahia North local government area.

He said, “I am appealing to the general public, the state government, and the security agencies to assist my family in finding the children and reuniting them with us.”

The 43-year-old man from Amasiri in Ebonyi State lamented that since the children went missing, life had not been the same again for the family and their relatives.

“I have been praying and asking for God’s intervention as He has been helping families who have suffered similar fates and His protection of the children,” he said.

In another report, the House of Representatives has ordered security agencies in the country to carry out a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances leading to the murder of soldiers by yet-to-be-identified gunmen.

Adopting a motion of urgent public importance sponsored by Abubakar Yalleman, the House asked its committees on Defence to work with the Armed Forces and ensure a thorough investigation to identify those responsible for the act.

Yalleman lamented the needless and gruesome murder of the military personnel who were on peace missions, adding that the act has become a recurring decimal across the country.

Yalleman at the time the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), was lampooning President Bola Tinubu’s alleged order for the military to retaliate against the killing of soldiers in Abia State.
