A missing woman simply identified as Comfort has been reunited with her mother in Enugu State hours after the police announced they were looking for her family members.
She was reunited with her mother on Tuesday hours, police spokesman, Daniel Ndukwe told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Comfort had earlier given three different names as her name and her age as 20 years during police profiling.
Her widowed mother, however, told the police during the reunion that her daughter’s name is Comfort and that she is 23 years.
“The mother said Comfort left a prayer house in Inyi community in Oji River Local Government Area of the state where she had been since December 31, 2022, following her state of mental imbalance.
“She said efforts to locate her proved abortive until she was notified of a police statement about a lost-but-found lady in different media platforms.
“She added that Comfort, who was a student of Abia State University Uturu, started suffering from mental imbalance in 2020 after she returned from a wedding ceremony in Abuja,” Mr Ndukwe said.
The police spokesman said the Enugu Police Command appreciates everyone who contributed to making the finding and reunion of Comfort with her mother possible.
“The police applaud the Good Samaritan that found and took Comfort to the police station at Ozalla Division on Jan. 20 after she was found wandering at Obe community in Nkanu West Local Government Area.
“We also appreciate pressmen and public-spirited individuals who used their various media platforms to widely circulate news about the lost-but-found lady,” Ndukwe added.
