ABSU Student Reportedly Beheaded Returns Home Alive
The 200-level student of Abia State University (ABSU), Sandra Gold Izim, has returned home days after being declared missing and reported to have been beheaded by ritualists.
Her friends and family disclosed that she returned to Owerri, Imo State on Monday, March 6, 2017 after three days.
Izim’s disappearance caused panic leading to the arrest of two of his friends, Lilian and Chisom who she went out with the day she went missing.
“She told us at the police station that she was coming from a boy’s house”, Lilian’s sister, Chidinma, told newsmen.
Izim was said to have left ABSU for the Imo State University (IMSU), alongside one of her friends, Chisom, for a wedding party in Owerri. It was confirmed to be her first ever visit to the city.
It was learnt that the day they arrived IMSU, they stayed at the hostel room of one of Chisom’s friends called Lilian. Later that night, they decided to go clubbing but Lilian reportedly told them she was not in the mood but decided to go with them after some persuasion.
It was learnt that the 200-Level ABSU undergraduate went clubbing with her friends on Friday night, March 3, 2017 but did not come back with them. She reportedly left with a man she met at the club.
“They told her not to go but she refused”, a statement released by Lilian’s sister, Chidinma said.
Lilian and Chisom, were said to have gone to the police to file a missing person report but were detained afterwards.
Meanwhile just few hours after she was declared missing, a headless body of a young lady said to also be an undergraduate of ABSU was circulated over the internet, fueling rumours that it was the corpse of Sandra.
Findings confirmed that the police in Imo State were still investigating the case of the headless body.
Sandra’s sister, Vivian, also confirmed that she was back home and in good health.
She did not offer any explanation as to why her sister could not be contacted to the point where she was thought to have been kidnapped.
Also, Sandra has not replied messages sent to her on her social media accounts.
A police officer familiar with the investigation into the disappearance of the Sandra, confirmed that her friends were released when she showed up.
Spokesperson for the Imo State Police Command, Mr. Andrew Enwerem, was unreachable when contacted him for comments.
