A 17-year-old undergraduate, Chiedozi Azuike, went missing on the day he was to resume into a private university in Enugu.
PUNCH Metro learnt Chiedozi’s former teacher, whom his mother had implored to take him to the university, got to their house on December 4 but did not meet him at home.
However, Chiedozi’s mother, Maureen Azuike, who noted that some strange things had been happening before his disappearance, said she believed that her son was hypnotised.
She added that Chiedozie left the money she gave him and his school documents at home, which gave her the impression that he did not go to school.
The 35-year-old mother added that she thought he had left for the school on his own, only for her to call the school around 3.30pm and she was informed that Chiedozi had not reported at the school.
She added that when she got home that night, the other children told her that Chiedozi had left the money, phone and his school documents at home, adding that when she checked the phone, she discovered that the call log had been deleted from the phone.
