“She hails from Lagos and speaks English Language fluently. Wore light blue blouse shirt and trousers, fair in complexion and she has no tribal mark.”
The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Ahmed Wakil, said that Mildred was found in a park in Bauchi.
Wakil said, “The essence of sharing the information is to find her parents. She could not remember anything when she arrived in Bauchi. A lady woke her up in the park, and she did not know where she was.
“So, they contacted the police, and our public relations office called my attention to it. That was why I made it public.”
Upon running a check on the address, I discovered that the street does not exist.
When contacted, The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, also confirmed that the street did not exist.
He said, “We hope her relatives will reach out when they see her picture.”
