According to the 14-year-old boy, he thought his abductors were at the river to fetch water, only to find out later that they were criminals.  The teenager further revealed that they were fetching water at the river, when his abductors showed up and forced him and the other boy into their bus.

“I didn’t know where they were taking us to until they stopped over at Bida. So, I opened the door and ran away. When they did not see me, they quickly zoomed off with the other boy in the bus.

“I wasn’t sure where they were taking us to; I never knew that we were in Niger State until I jumped down from the bus and met one Igbo man, who took me to Child Rights Agency for interrogation” the Junior Secondary School pupil said.

Punch reported that the Director General, Child Rights Agency in Niger State, Mariam Kolo who confirmed the incident, disclosed that the teenager was kidnapped at the Avanu River, Enugu State and was later found in Bida.

It was gathered that Godwin was living with his grandmother in Enugu, while his biological mother lives in Jos, Plateau State.

“We have contacted the Igbo community in Niger State to assist us to trace the victim’s mother in Jos so that we can unite the boy with his family,” the DG stated.
