A teenage girl identified as Kosisochukwu Anioma who was earlier reported to have been kidnapped by suspected Fulani Herdsmen in Enugu, actually went to see her boyfriend in another state.
Reports have it that she left home on Thursday, August 22nd to visit her boyfriend, without informing her parents.
She has however been arrested by Police and made confessional statements on what actauily happened.
But in what would be consider as a case of mischief, a lady alleged that her father Frank Anioma who was a former aide to the former governor of Enugu State, reportedly raised the false alarm on social media.
The lady identified as Stella Nkem Obi wrote on Facebook.:
Enugu, Sabotage And The World of Fake News!
Wonders shall never end…
Two days ago, Frank Anioma, a politician from Nkanu East L.G.A of Enugu State, raised false and wicked alarm that his daughter, Kosisochukwu Anioma was kidnapped in Enugu (See his Facebook post below).
Today, his daughter has confessed to the Police that she was not kidnapped but travelled to Owerri, Imo State, to see her boyfriend, Enugu State Police Command tweets. https://twitter.com/PoliceNG_Enugu/status/1165044808030797824?s=19
The worst of it all is that the same Frank Anioma after knowing the truth that his daughter was not kidnapped but sneaked out of the house to go and see her boyfriend in Owerri, deliberately rushed to the social media to lie again that his daughter has been rescued.
God will continue to expose those who are bent on sabotaging the existing peace and good governance in Enugu State as well as undermining the tireless efforts of our people’s governor to secure our dear state as one of the most peaceful and safest states in Nigeria. We should recall that Rev. Fr. Nnamdi Nwankwo had recently raised the alarm that some people are sabotaging the efforts of Enugu State Governor in securing the state.
For Uncle Frank, you have to tender an unreserved public apology to your family, friends and well-wishers, security agencies, Enugu State government and the entire people of the state, for this heinous embarrassment and expensive fake news. You must also be made to face the wrath of the law for peddling fake news so that others will learn.
Frank Anioma earlier wrote this in his Facebook wall:
“Please friends and good Nigerians help me. My Daughter Kosisochukwu Anioma was kidnapped this morning, Thursday 22nd August, about 7am on her way to New Heaven Market. Her phone +234 902…… was ringing without response. Now it’s ringing line busy. Please help repost this. Who knows, God will show us mercy”.
After her daughter returned from seeing her boyfriend in Owerri, Frank deliberately wrote again:
“MY PEOPLE I AM SO PROUD OF YOU GUYS. I LOVE YOU ALL ( IFEDIKA UNU AKOKWANAM). PLEASE JOIN ME TO THANK GOD. HE HAS DONE IT. YOUR PRAYERS HAS BEEN ANSWERED. MY DAUGHTER IS ALIVE AND SHE’S AT HOME NOW. I THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS, VISITS AND WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT. MAY NONE OF YOU EXPERIENCE SUCH TRUMA IN JESUS NAME AMEN. WE GIVE GOD ALL THE PRAISE”.
Brothers and sisters, please let’s join hands and say No to Fake News in Enugu State and those who are sabotaging the state government. Thank you.
