It was also gathered that the Keke rider is unknown to the family.

Demanding help for the disappearance of his children, 43-year-old Agah stated that the incident has shattered his family as they have yet to recover from the trauma nor live a normal life since it happened.

His words, “She (his wife) paid a Keke (tricycle) rider to take them to school. In the afternoon, when the school was supposed to be dismissed, they did not return home, and my wife went to their school to look for them. She was told by the school authorities that they did not come to school at all. My wife called me and I returned to Umuahia on Tuesday morning. I went to the school and was told the same story.

“So, I went to the police and reported it. They gave me four policemen and we searched for them but without success. They asked me to come back the next day and make a statement. “After that, they told me to go to a radio station and make an announcement. I have done all these and till now, I have not seen them.

Reacting to the disappearance of the tricyclist, Abia Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Maureen Chinaka said the incident was reported at the Ohuhu Police Station on Tuesday, November 28, 2023.
