The body of a young girl, Rosemary Chinyere Nnachi, was found floating in a river at Nnodo community, in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, barely 48 hours after she was declared missing.
It was learnt that the young girl was declared missing on Saturday, December 12, when she attended an end of the year event with her parents at a club in Nnoro community.
“The child disappeared suddenly. Nobody knew where she went to and they started looking for her,” a family source source.
Her parents, who are members of the club, were said to have deployed search parties, but all efforts to find her were unsuccessful. A missing person report was also circulated on the social media.
A legal practitioner, Ekigbo Sampson Nnamdi, confirmed on his Facebook page that the body of the girl was found 48 hours later floating in a stream far from the club.
“The missing child was found dead. The world we live in is evil. Thanks to those who showed concern.” he wrote.
