FIDA had in reaction, two weeks ago, reported the case to the Area Command of the Nigeria Police in Enugu, but without any action on the suspects.

Enugu state Chairperson oof FIDA, Sylvia Abanah who briefed newsmen on the window’s disappearance said that “It is alarming and outrageous that in the morning of Monday, 1st June 2020, three persons purported to be policemen came to the residence and whisked Amoge away to an unknown destination.

“FIDA and the family are worried, nobody knows her whereabouts and all efforts to ascertain that have proved abortive. Under the circumstance the poor widow was reportedly taken away by the purported police operatives, we are seriously bothered about her safety,” Abanah said.

The women lawyers demanded that the Nigeria Police should speak up and let the world know the widow’s whereabouts while praying that nothing untoward happens to her.
