A three-year-old boy, Adanu Godmercy, was, on Friday, kidnapped in his school in Otukpo local government area of Benue State.
Sunday Vanguard learned that the boy, who was last seen in his classroom during break, disappeared without the knowledge of his teacher.
The father of the pupil, James Adanu, who owns a business outfit in Otukpo, insisted there was no way his child would disappear from the school without the knowledge of his teacher.
“The school is fenced and has one gate and so no external person can pick him, the food flask and basket at the same time,”he said.
Adanu, still in shock, said his child was eating the food he took to school around 10am during break before his sudden disappearance
He lamented that the school authorities did not inform him of the development until closing time, insisting “the teachers of the school know something about my missing child.”
The mother of the missing boy, Janet Adanu, who spoke amidst tears, said, “I feel bad, I don’t know where he is. I don’t know what they have done to him. Are they feeding him?”.
When contacted, the acting Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO in the state, Assistant Superintendent, ASP, Matthew Oku, stated that journalists would be briefed later on the matter.
