LAGOS: 57 Children Missing In Seven Months

No fewer than 57 teenagers have been declared missing in Lagos State between January and July this year by their family members or guardians, according to the state Police Command.
This was contained in a report exclusively obtained by our correspondent from the command.

Analysis of the document revealed that of the number, 27 are males, representing 47.4 per cent of the total figure; while 30 are females, representing 52.6 per cent.
A breakdown of the missing teenagers showed their states of origin from across the geopolitical zones thus; South-West, 20; South-East, 33; North-Central, 2; North-West, 1; and South-South, 1.

It was also discovered that the ages of many of the missing teenagers were between 10 and 19 years.
The highest cases of missing persons in the last seven months were also recorded in the Igando-Idimu-Ejigbo-Ikotun area of the state.
This was followed by Agege, Iju and Badagry areas.

Our correspondent, who searched for some of the addresses given to the Police by those who reported their missing family members, discovered that they had either vacated the places or the addresses supplied were incorrect.

The command said anybody with useful information regarding how to find the missing teenagers should contact the police or their relatives.
