Teenager confesses travelling to see boyfriend after father raised kidnap alarm

A 14-year-old JSS 111 pupil in Enugu State, Kosisochukwu Anioma, has admitted that she left the house to see her boyfriend contrary to her parents’ claim that she had been kidnapped.

Enugu police spokesperson, Ebere Amaraizu, said in a statement on Saturday that Frank Anioma had raised kidnap alarm over his missing daughter.


Mr Amaraizu said Anioma took to social media to announce his daughter’s kidnap and also reported to the police.

The spokesman said the fake kidnap alarm was raised on August 22 with police operatives of the Anti-Kidnap Unit immediately going into action.

He said that contrary to the fake social media post, fresh facts had emerged on the incident.


According to him, Kosisochukwu was never abducted by anyone and that she willingly left their home.

He said that Anioma’s daughter went to the park at Holy Ghost without telling anyone and headed to Owerri where she met her boyfriend.

“According to her, both of them have been secondary school friends at Abakiliki but she needed to go see him following the prolonged school holiday.


“Kosisochukwu, 14, is going to SSS 1 if school reopens same with her boyfriend who hails from Owerri in Imo State,’’ the police spokesman said.

Amaraizu said that Kosisochukwu confessed that she was not abducted nor kidnapped as stated by her father.
