A 22-year old student of the Cross River University of Technology, identified as Priscilla Ojong, has been declared missing.
According to a viral report, Priscilla who is in her third year at the university reportedly went missing after she supposedly traveled from Calabar to Lagos State three weeks ago on the invitation of a male friend.
Popular journalist and publisher of CaliTown, Iwara Iwara, revealed Ojong has not been seen or heard from since she left Calabar three weeks ago, and her phone has been unreachable.
Two of Priscilla’s friends who spoke to calitown confirmed that she traveled to Lagos on the invitation of an unknown male friend who credited her account with the transport fare.
One of the friends said she received a call from Priscilla informing her that she had arrived in Lagos safely and will be staying over for just the weekend.
When she didn’t return, they became worried and repeatedly called her phone number but it was switched off.
Several days after, unable to reach her through calls and even text messages, the friends contacted Priscilla’s parents in Akamkpa LGA of Cross River State.
Their attempt to reach their daughter equally proved abortive so they informed the police in Calabar.
“We were at the (police) station today. My friend and Priscilla’s dad will be heading to the bank to get her statement of account because the day she traveled the guy in question sent her transport fare”, one of the two friends told Calitown.
The visit to the bank was to obtain Priscilla’s bank statement in order to unravel the identity of the person who invited her to Lagos.
Police sources confirmed that investigation into the incident has commenced.
