Father Of Igbo Girl Abducted in Zaria Cries Out For Her Release...

IFEOMA, now Aisha, is the daughter of Mr. Ndubuisi Nichodemus. She was living with her parents, in the midst of the Hausa community in Zaria, Kaduna State, until May, 2014. On that fateful evening, Ifeoma had left the house in protest because her mother had questioned her for returning late to the house ......



She simply walked out of her parents’ compound into a neighbour’s house, and since 21 months ago to be precise, the family is yet to set their eyes on her.
Ifeoma, now 16, Saturday Sun learnt, might have been converted to Islam, even as her mother disclosed that she gathered reliably that her daughter had been married off. This was the story, told to our reporter in November last year.


Since then, nothing happened. But by last week Wednesday, apparently fol­lowing the public outcry over the abduc­tion of Bayelsa-born Ese, Mr. Nichode­mus was sighted at the Police Command headquarters, in Kaduna. However, neither the Police nor Mr. Nichodemus, was forthcoming on what transpired last Wednesday.

The only thing he told Saturday Sun when pressed further was that “the situ­ation remains the same. Nothing has changed, as my daughter is not back. The Sharia Court handling the mat­ter keeps adjourning the case and as a result, we are still where we were last year”


Speaking during an interview then, Ndubuisi Nichodemus, resident of Sabon-Gari, Zaria, Kaduna State, who appealed to the authorities concerned, to help rescue his daughter, allegedly in the custody of another man since 2014, said her daughter had come home late on that fateful day and felt, as responsible par­ents, she should be scolded. They did, and the girl ran into a neighbour’s house.


Thereafter, he said the girl claimed she had renounced Christianity for Is­lam as her preferred religion, which made one of the neighbours simply identified as Abdullahi to take the girl to one Alhaji Shehu Khalil, who train new converts into Islam. This is even as If­eoma’s biological mother disclosed that she heard reliably that her daughter has been given out in marriage without her knowledge and consent.


According to Nudubuisi, “it all start­ed in May (2014) when she came home late and her mother talked to her. She then left the compound to our neigh­bour’s place. We lived in the midst of Hausa who are majorly Muslims. So, we learnt that Abdullahi has taken her to Mallam, Khalil who work with Ahmadu Bello University, at Energy Research here in Samaru. The next thing we heard was the conversion of our daughter to Islam.

“So after we approached him for the release of our daughter, he told us she had traveled to Sokoto. When we reported the case to the Christian Asso­ciation of Nigeria (CAN) in Zaria, and they wrote to Commissioner of Police Kaduna State, Directorate of State Se­curity (DSS) for assistance, the Police Commissioner, Shehu Umar, sent some of his men to Zaria, that the girl should be handed over to her biological parents.

“But on getting to Zaria, the man has gone to Sharia Court in Zaria to collect a court order, granting him the custody of the girl. This was granted without con­sulting her biological father.
“So, we were told that our daugh­ter had been moved from Zaria to one school called Da-rul Islam in Kaduna where new converts are usually taken to. This attitude is capable of igniting religion crisis in the State. We have been in Zaria for more than three decades??? without having any issue with anybody.


“Now when we approached the school in Kaduna alongside the CAN representative, the school told us to go and get a written clarification to that ef­fect because there was a written order from court before she was admitted. The school later appealed to us to come and take our girl because she was giving them problem. But we need court order to do that.
“Even with the intervention of the Commissioner of Police that the girl should be released to us, the court re­fused to release her and instead trans­ferred the case to upper Sharia court in Zaria.

“In fact, for more than a year now, we have not set our eyes on our own daughter when we are still alive. We are against this impunity that our child will be in custody of another man when we the parents are alive.
“The whole episode had even forced us out of the former house where it all started. We are hereby calling on con­cerned authorities including the State government to come to our rescue. They have aborted her schooling. She has also been kept incommunicado as we are no longer hear from her. 


She remains a Christian and not a Muslim as they claim. She is just a 15-year-old girl and that makes her a minor in this case. I want my daughter back so she can con­tinue with her education.”
But Ifeoma’s mother, Angnes Nich­odemus’ view was completely different form her husband’s. She alleged that her daughter was said to have been married out to a Hausa Muslim without the con­sent of her parents.
According to her, “I was told that one Hausa boy has been given my daugh­ter, a minor, as wife without our input as parents. I was made to realise that the boy is working inside ABU here in Zaria, though I don’t know whether as a staff of the school or not. This is rather modern oppression and slavery.

“We have been doing everything we could legally. But from the way it has been, it shows we are not one Nigeria. You can imagine how you will feel as a mother when your child is missing. But my daughter’s case is different be­cause for more than a year now she is being in custody of another man. No contact, no phone call. This is rather unfortunate.”

When contacted through his mobile telephone, the man at the centre of the allegation, Alhaji Shehu Khalil, was not ready to give much details on the issues raised.
Instead, he just said “How did you manage to get my number? Who said he has his daughter in my custody? Well, I don’t know anything. You can come to Zaria I don’t know anything because I cannot talk to you on phone.”

The Police on its part, through its Kaduna Command Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Zubair Abubakar, confirmed the incident but declined to comment further, saying “you know the case is still in court and I’m not permit­ted until the court decides.”

WHAT IS GOING ON PLEASE?Is there some sort of cult that kidnap young girls?
I know some lady who went missing when she was just 19 or so.....I grew up hearing about ther story and then one day after many many years,she arrived her parents house dressed like an Hajia and speaking only hausa.on seeing her ,the mother fainted.She said she had been in Kano but couldnt remember where.She didnt go back though but she came back an old woman and her womb showed signs of many pregnancies.She didnt know if she had been pregnant or not...today she is a very old woman with a sad story

I am happy the Ese Oruru story has opened a flood gate of questions.Who are these people kidnapping our young and what should be done to them?

Thank you Stella for this post. It's a call for concern. This has been going on for long and the authorities have turned a blind eye to it. You can't impose your culture and religion on others. You can't enslave young girls, in fact kids because they are kids in the name of marriage. It's heartbreaking the way it keeps reoccurring and nothing is done. #saynotosexslavery #saynotochildmarraige

I think there is a sect or a group mandated to do this.

I used to think all those young girls who just dissappear onto the air were being taken for rituals, I know better now.

And in a million years, I would never had guessed Northerners were so into jazz like this, gosh I'm totally stunned!

I also want to believe that schools have increased security all round, you see so many people lurking around school gates at closing time, you don't even know who has a right to be there and who is waiting to steal someone's child. #sosad

So these things have been happening and they've been covering it up. Thank God for ese's parents. Lots of ppl are beginning to open up.
Muslims, leave Christians alone abeg if u won't marry them without having dem convert.

My Christian neighbor that has been married for over 20yrs has a Muslim wife and she's practicing her faith without disturbance.


Most importantly all you perverts should leave little girls alone abeg or go to ur land and continue since y'all believe in it.

Parents should please keep an eye on their girl child mbok. May the Lord protect us from all this predators.

Stella this has been going on for a long time. It's not a new development. Alot of people will still come out to present their case to the media now as the case of ese made a positive head way..

They kidnap young girls age 12-16yrs old, give them whatever to drink, recite things and ask them to say same then take them to Islamic school, marry them off to an older man and they start having children..

If you as a parent go for your child, you would be denied a chance to see your daughter face to face and told she isn't yours again as she is no longer of the same religion with you and now married

Who marries of a child without the consent of their parents?? Why allow a minor change religion when they can't do anything on their own

Alot of atrocities goes on in the north but you wouldn't know if you haven't lived there


BTW, why are you putting the 3 decades in red?? My mom was born in the north, schooled in the north, got married in the north to my dad who came to the north when he was a baby. So yes, some people have lived over 3 decades in the north. My mom speaks hausa and fulani language more than she even speaks Igbo. She can recite the Koran very well because while they were growing up she followed her friends to their Islamic school when her mom is not around.

This is really serious,so young girls that are based in northern part of nigeria should be living in fear or what????

Hmm, a neighbour was telling me that it was all in the master plan to islamize nigeria. That they plan to kidnap christian girls and marry them off and convert them. She even said that's what happened to the chibok girls. Dunno how true it is tho. May God continue to protect us

Anonymous said...

All I can tell you is that, this abduction of teenage girls did not start today. It is an Islamic agenda that has been going on for so long.
Its a pity that Christians have still not woken up to smell the coffee.

The problem is not about marrying them and converting them

But it's about taking someone child that is still 12-14, convert them to Islam, marry them off without their parents consent. Making the parents look for them up and down. And when they finally know where the child is, they won't allow the child See the parents and tell you she's no longer your child..

This things have been happening and the emits and sultans even encourage it and do nothing about returning the child. The police even works with them. So most times this parents Give up until whatever jazz clears from the girls eyes and that's after she must have birthed so many kids

Most of the chibok girls were Christians. Because in maiduguri there are Alot of northern Christians.

If she ran away, shouldn't she be returned to the parents?? Instead of marrying her off and converting her to Islam at the age of 13. Biko talk with sense

Anonymous said...

There are hausas that are Christians, Infact Alot. Those ones don't do all this

Its the hausa Muslims that do all this.

At 13,shoukent she be returned to her parents instead of converting her and marrying her off..

PLease you of all people should talk well as you stay in a civilized place. In the country you reside, if something like this happens the person who married the girl stands a chance of going to jail for 10yrs..

Because she's a minor no matter what

What is going on in this country? Is this the new way of Islam? Why forcefully convert someone to ur religion? Why so much evil?

Parents should train their children properly! Girls runaway /elope with men even in the western world but because of the religion involved it is easily tagged kidnapping.

BelieveAll Outreach said...

What is really going on in that Northern part of Nigeria.

So they are now kidnapping our girl and Buhari is keeping quiet

Anonymous said...

We keep saying they were being kidnapped but the fact remains most parents don't play their roles well. Most young girls these days tend to have hidden potential of being spoilt, and we have lot of crazy individuals ready to help them realise those potential s. Parents need to work more on good upbringing to avoid this kind of scenario.

It is more than scary. If they can now go beyond the north and jazz kids, take them back it's horrific. Taking away the innocence of kids. It is incredible. Why will religion override the law? Are we in an Islamic state? Honestly I begin to believe and understand some people's fears when they say there is the intention to islamize Nigeria. What a shame Nigeria. A country that cannot protect it's future.

Christian girls should avoid those people, they should stop doing ojukokoro by dating the abokis. You will cringe at the way this girl jump at abokis, while their own girls are treated as sacred. They refer to christian girls as baiwa i.e slaves and commoners. That is why they mess them up. Let us respect ourselves, educate our kids to avoid them as lepers!

God forgive me ....but I cant stand these northern Muslim men especially the older generation.
They are everything I hate. They are racist, evil, smelly, backwards and also foolish.
They specialise in jazz, corruption, they are paedophiles and bi-sexual undercover.
They smell and have rotten teeth. If you accidently manage to date one even the rich man pickin them... they are so dumb with fish brains.
They respect no other culture but theirs and they think they are above it all.
I have had my own personal experience with these awful lot and realised they are the reason Nigeria is the way it is.
It is time to make a stand against these evil lot. Just go to the north and see the way they treat Igbo men.... you will be shocked.
