Family In Confusion In Lagos Over Their Missing 7-Year-Old Boy (Photo)

The disappearance of a 7-year-old boy has sprung a family into panic and confusion as they call for the assistance of well-meaning Nigerians.

On Monday, November 7, 2016, seven-year-old Toheeb Aremu simply vanished from his parents’ home in Akowonjo area of Lagos. More than three weeks after, there has been no trace of the boy, causing apprehension in the family over what might have happened to him.

The boy’s grandmother, Mrs. Grace Felix, said she was heading back from a visit to a relative with him and his elder brother, when she put them on a commercial motorcycle ahead of her.

“I followed them on another motorcycle but by the time I got home, nobody, including Toheeb’s brother, could account for where he was, even though the okada rider who carried them both indeed dropped them at home,” she said.

Toheeb is suffering from speech problems and cannot talk, even though he is not deaf, Saturday PUNCH learnt.

He also cannot read nor write, his family have said.

The family said they had notified all the police divisions around Akowonjo but are pleading with members of the public for information that could help locate the boy.

Anybody with information about the boy’s whereabouts has been urged to report to the nearest police station or contact the Esther Child Rights Foundation on 08101508605.toheeb
