Meanwhile, follow-up calls and text messages sent by this correspondent were not responded to up till Saturday morning.
Also, when the emergency room for the Kogi State police command was contacted on Thursday, the respondent expressed rude shock and promised to get across to the parents of the victim upon the receipt of the necessary information, which PREMIUM TIMES re-sent.
Nothing was heard from the security operatives still.
Festus Ogun, an activist and the Convener of Legal Minds for Good Governance Initiative (LMGGi), condemned the silence of police over the case.
“For now, all that can be said is that the leadership of the country has failed woefully in its constitutional duty to secure the people of Nigeria. By virtue of Section 14(2)(b) of the 1999 Constitution, the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government. Sadly, security, in particular, only exist in our illusion. It is a myth in Nigeria.”
“The case of Motunrayo has put to bare the sad reality of the nation’s security and the disconnect between the people and the government. If ours was a serious leadership that jealously guard the interests of its citizens, the security agency should have taken a clear stance on the promising lady’s abduction,” Mr Ogun said.
