Police speaks on woman who went missing during jogging routine in Ajah

Controversy has trailed the whereabouts of a 24-year-old woman Gbemisola Alabi said to have disappeared while jogging on Sunday in Ajah.

Alabi, her family said was kidnapped while jogging around Monastery Road, near Novare Mall in Shongotedo, Ajah but the police said they were investigating a case of missing person since nothing points to kidnapping at the moment.

A source has disclosed to The Nation that the family is suspecting Alabi’s landlady and son of being responsible for her kidnap because of some issues between them.

It was alleged that the unnamed landlady and her son had threatened to deal with Alabi following a disagreement that ensued between them.

But the police said it would be wrong to conclude it was a case of kidnapping, insisting the case currently before them was that of a missing person.

Spokesman Bala Elkana, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) said the report at the station indicated disappearance, adding that from preliminary findings, the woman went jogging without her phone, and no one had contacted the family to demand ransom.

He said: “It will be wrong to say she was kidnapped. At the moment, no one has come forward to say they have her in their custody not made demands to that effect. She left the house to jog which is her normal routine but this time around, she didn’t come back.

“No one knows for sure ehat happened to her. It is true the family said they were suspecting the landlady and her son and we have invited them. Investigation is ongoing to unravel what happened to her and where she is.”
