suspicious when the father , Tajudeen Usman ,
a driver, who plies the Ilorin - Lagos route at
Sawmill garage enquired after the deceased at
12p. m. on the said day.

children at her grand -father’ s place. When I
didn’ t see her at the time I expected, I
became very suspicious because this was very
unusual of her .

fruit up till about 7p. m . , I became very
apprehensive. At that moment , I felt cold. It
was the shout from the search team later the
next morning , at 6 a. m . that threw the
neighbourhood into agony. ”

commenced by the police who vowed to try
their best to fish out the culprits.
