Panic as university student goes missing in Lokoja

Monday, March 18, 2024 – 
A 200-level student of the Federal University, Lokoja, Janet Kyeme, has been reported missing after she left to attend lectures at the university. 

Janet, a student of the Department of Library and Information Science, was last seen on Friday morning, March 15, when she took a motorcycle from her family house at Zango – Army Barracks area of Lokoja on her way to the main campus of the institution at Felele in Lokoja.

Her foster father, a pastor of a Pentecostal church in Lokoja, raised the alarm when she did not return from school that fateful day.

Pastor Joseph, a close friend of the family, said: “She left for school on Friday early morning as usual. When she did not come back from school that day, her foster father, a pastor and others called, but could not reach her as her cell phone was switched off.

“A sister was sent to the school to confirm her whereabouts without success. 

“Apprehension has gripped the family over her fate, as no contact has been made to the family from any quarters since her sudden disappearance.”

The authorities of the university said the institution had left no stone unturned to ensure that the whereabouts of the student were established. 

“The school authorities have taken appropriate action in conjunction with security agents and other relevant bodies. We hope our efforts will yield a desirable result. Since it’s already a security matter, we cannot say much about the situation now,” a director in the institution, who craved anonymity, said, according to Daily Trust.
