A senior one teenage girl who was reported missing a month ago has been found at her boyfriend’s place in Kawempe, a police source has claimed.
Nayiga Shakira, aged 16 years went missing on September 22 at her parents’ home in Kawempe, a Kampala suburb.
Following several days of searching every nook and cranny, Shakira was found lounging in her boyfriend’s dwelling in Luweero and going about her ‘wifely’ duties.
A case; SDREF:42/30/9/2019, was lodged in at Kawempe Police Station following her disappearance from home, and social media was awash with the news and search to no avail.
“Naiga Shakira 16 who had gone missing has been found by our Police in Wobulenzi Luwero. She was found with a boyfriend and are both in Police custody at Kawempe Police station for questioning,” reads a statement from Uganda Police.
Her family mounted a search but got no wind of where she was. They were later shocked when a one Denis Odongo called the family asking for ransom in order to release her.
Odongo asked the family to raise Shs2m and gave them two hours to financially organize themselves.
