A 22-year old Mass Communication student of the Cross River University of Technology, Priscilla Ojong, has been declared missing.
According to Priscilla’s friends, the 300-level student supposedly travelled from Calabar to Lagos State three weeks ago on the invitation of a male friend.
Miss Ojong has not been seen or heard from since she left Calabar and her phone not reachable.
Two of her friends who spoke to our correspondents confirmed that she travelled to Lagos on the invitation of an unknown male friend who credited her account with transport fare.
One of the friends said she received a call from Priscilla informing her that she had arrived Lagos safely and will be staying over for just the weekend.
When she however didn’t return, they became worried and repeatedly called her phone number but it was switched off.
Several days after, unable to reach her through calls and even text messages, the friends contacted Priscillia’s parents in Akamkpa Local Government Area of the state.
Their attempt to reach their daughter equally proved abortive so they informed the police in Calabar.
“We were at the (police) station today. My friend and Priscillia’s dad will be heading to the bank to get her statement of account because the day she traveled the guy in question sent her transport fare”, one of the two friends said.
The visit to the bank was to obtain Priscilla’s bank statement in order to establish the identity of the person who invited her to Lagos.
Meanwhile, police sources confirmed that investigation into the incident has commenced.
