A 15-year-old girl, Oluwakemi Abayomi, ran away from home after her mother, Mariam Lebi, scolded her for allegedly engaging in immoral affairs.
According to Punch, Oluwakemi, a primary six pupil is the first of her mother’s six children who is a cleaner in a public school.
According to reports, the mother who is separated from Kemi’s father said her daughter went missing around 1pm on Sunday.
“She was living with my mother
-r in the Lekki Beach area. I stay around Itedo, which is just a stone’s throw from my mother’s place. Although she had been staying with my mother since she was five years old, I have been responsible for her upkeep. She never knew her father because he left us when she was an infant.
I got a report of her misbehaviour and told her to bring her luggage to my house. I scolded her and told her that I would take her far away from this vicinity after her common entrance.
“She went to my mum’s house on Sunday to pick her luggage. As she was coming back, a tricycle rider I knew told me he picked her and dropped her off at Elf bus stop around 1pm. He said he saw her board a vehicle to Ajah. She was supposed to alight at Ikate Roundabout, but she didn’t return home.”
Ms Lebi said she became alarmed when her mother called to know if Abayomi had gotten home, hours after she left her grandma’s house.
She enquired from Abayomi’s friends and other relatives about her whereabouts but none knew where she went to.
“Later, someone told me that a man came to her school to look for her on Wednesday when the school vacated. I was told that after the discussion, the man gave her a telephone number. Nobody knew who the man was and from the description, I don’t know the man myself.
She was getting wayward and involving herself in immoral relationships when I became angry and decided to change her environment. But I didn’t expect her to disappear from home. She has never done this before and all my relatives said they have not seen her,”
