She was discovered to be missing since July 19 after going to buy biscuit.
She lived with her aunty at 1B, Abikoye Street, Amukoko, Lagos.
Her father, Mr. Ramon Muritala, told The Nation that Zainab became missing around 7pm on July 19 when she went to buy biscuit.
Describing Zainab as a lively, young girl, Muritala said: “She was playing outside the house around 7pm that day and she later went inside to meet her guardian, who is my sister, to ask her for money to buy biscuit. She went to buy the biscuit, while my sister waited for her to return, but we have been waiting for her since then. We went out to look for her, but could not find her.”
He said the incident has been reported at police stations, “but efforts have proved abortive, as the girl has not been found.”
Muritala said the search is still on.
He begged anyone with information about his missing daughter to report to the nearest police station.
