The governor made the call for the return of Uzoamaka to the state while paying her family a visit at their Umunaga Uburu residence. He said her return would enable the state government to take full responsibility of her rehabilitation and training.
Emma Anya, chief press secretary to the governor quotes Umahi as having said:
“Government is asking that wherever she is, she should come back so that we can take over her training from secondary school to university level. We will also be able to rehabilitate her.”
Elder Francis Odabe, said “We thank you for the commitment of the government towards Uzoamaka’s well being. Nobody knows where she is but we promise to do all in our powers to bring her out”.
