A 15-year-old girl, Rita Clement, who was abducted by unidentified persons while on her way to sit for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination in the Ikeja area of Lagos State, has returned home.

It was learnt that Clement was dropped off by her abductors in the Oshodi area on Wednesday around 9pm, and given money to take a bus back home.

PUNCH Metro had reported on Thursday, March 17, 2016, that Clement, who lived with her relatives on Gboyega Kilo Street in the Ojodu Berger area, and had UTME registration number 65061660GJ, went missing on Thursday, March 10.

It was reported that she was to sit for the exam at 6.30am on the day she went missing, and her centre was at the West African Examinations Council International Office on Plot B, Lateef Jakande Road, Agidingbi, Lagos.

It was reported that at about 5pm on Thursday, Clement sent a text message to her mother’s mobile phone, raising the alarm that she had been abducted and she did not know the location where she was taken to.
The matter was said to have been reported at the Ojodu Police Division and transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja.

Clement had written in the text message, “Mummy, they took my phone and beat me up inside the bus. Mummy, I don’t know where they took me to. They made me sleep and said they will kill me if I ran. Someone gave me the phone, saying I must return it before they came back. Mummy, please save me.”

The uncle, Emeka Orazulike, who worked as a pharmacist, had said they had yet to hear any update from the police, adding that he believed in God that Clement would return home.
PUNCH Metro learnt on Thursday that Clement walked back into the family’s apartment at about 9pm on Wednesday.
She was said to be tired and unable to give the details of her ordeal to the family members.

It was gathered that the family on Thursday went to the Ojodu division to make a statement that the teenager was back.
They, thereafter, proceeded to the SARS office, Ikeja, where the operatives took Clement’s statement.

Punch observed Clement, Orazulike, and three other family members at the Command headquarters, Ikeja.
The SARS operatives thereafter kept Clement with them, instructing the family to come for her in the evening, preventing the teenager from being interviewed by journalists.
Orazulike, said the teenager’s narration so far was that she was taken to an unknown place, but was asked to return home on Wednesday when her captors got tired of her.

He said, “For now, we know that she was taken to Abeokuta, Ogun State, by the abductors. But on Wednesday, the men brought her to Oshodi.
“They then gave her transport fare to find her way back home. She said the men stated that she was not their material. She walked into the house yesterday (Wednesday). We were all surprised.”

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said she had interviewed the girl and her explanation showed an abscondment rather than being abducted.
She said, “The girl is back and I have spoken with her. From what she narrated, it is more of an absconding from home than being abducted. She had been in Abeokuta. Meanwhile, the police are still investigating to get to the roots of this matter.”
When our correspondent asked Orazulike the ‘abdscondment theory’, he said the girl had not told him about that.

He said, “We suspect she had been with kidnappers or ritualists. She did not tell us about running away from home. She made us to believe through the text message that she was abducted and taken to an area. That is all we know for now.”

Thankfully she was released alive.

However I still believe the TRUE story has not been told. I am focussing on the text message she sent her family.

I believe this was a "staged kidnapping." She was either not prepared to take the exam or there was something more sinister she was hiding.

A very "intelligent" young lady.

The young lady should have been taken into police custody immediately for questioning. No one after a kidnapping ordeal gives the EXCUSE that " I am tired to talk."' Rubbish!

She appears to be part of the kidnap conspiracy and she should be treated as a SUSPECT.

There are TOO many innocent Nigerians who are REALLY being kidnapped and some are killed in the process. It is NOT  something that should be ridiculed by runaway daugthers!

She needs to be interrogated properly cause her story line is not positive....this girl might forget about his exam to stay with his boyfriend claiming that she was kidnapped....I have seen this type of case when I was in the school..a girl after writing post u.m.e instead of going back to this same Lagos..she stayed with her boyfriend for a month..later the boy was arrested that he kept the girl hostage while we were in the lodge seen both enjoying n m doing things peacefully
