A commercial driver in Agbor, Delta State, is sending a strong appeal to Nigerians for help to reunite an eight-year-old boy with his family. The boy was abandoned in the driver’s vehicle at Agbor, the reporter gathered.

According to the driver, whose name is being withheld by this newspaper, the boy has not been in contact with his family since September 3, last year after the kid and his father had boarded a vehicle from Asaba to Agbor.

The driver, who said he was heading to Benin City, had made a stop-over at the Uromi Road junction motor park where some passengers disembarked. However, when the driver was ready to take off again, his attention was drawn to the little boy by a passenger who noticed that the boy had been abandoned. The boy’s father had apparently absconded, leaving the boy to his fate.

Determined to find the boy’s father, the driver returned to the park in search of him. Unfortunately, there was no trace of him. All efforts to locate him proved futile. To worsen the situation, the little boy couldn’t give an account of his identity or where he was going to. The driver had to take the child to the Divisional Police Headquarters in Agbor, Delta State, where he narrated the boy’s ordeal

“I had reported the incident to the Divisional Police Station after several efforts to trace this boy’s father failed. I equally made inquiries at the motor park to see if there was anybody who had reported a case of a missing or forgotten child at the park. Surprisingly, there was no recorded complaint till date, neither has the Agbor police investigations yielded any positive results to identify the victim.

However, there seems to be an increasing concern for the welfare of the boy. The Police and the Delta State Ministry of Women Affairs, Community and Social Development in Asaba are collaborating to ensure that they get useful information that might help the boy reunite with his family.

At the moment, the child is at an orphanage in Agbor.

Assistant Chief Social Welfare Officer in Asaba, Mr. Ogoegbunam Adibeli, said till date, the child had not been able to disclose his name or his background

Anyone with useful information on the boy or how the child might be reunited with his family should contact the newspaper, the Divisional Police Headquarters in Agbor, Ministry of Women Affairs, the community or Social Development, Asaba. The Assistant Social Welfare Officer, Mr. Ogoegbunam Adibeli may be reached on 08060517515.
