A 15-year-old secondary school girl named Chioma who was abducted from her community in Enugu state has been reportedly converted to Islamic religion and set to be married in Kaduna, Siggy reports.
According to child activist, Harrison Gwamnishu, Chioma, 15, a JSS2 student was hypnotized and about to be married off to a suitor.
Gwamnishu said the minor identified as Chioma Chinedu was abducted and converted to Islam in Anchau village of Kaduna State, and has allegedly been hypnotized by her abductors who have refused to let her go.
He stated that nobody is against any religion, but Chioma doesn’t deserve a mental torture and forced marriage.
He said :
“15-YEAR-OLD JSS 2 STUDENT CHIOMA CHINEDU HYPNOTIZED AND ABOUT TO BE MARRIED TO A SUITOR IN KADUNA STATE.
Because it’s us, this will not make the headline. The story of Chioma Chinedu, a 15-year-old JSS 2 student from Enugu State, abducted and converted to Islam in Anchau village Kaduna State should be a worry to us.\
As at this moment, Chioma is nowhere to be found as her abductors have refused to let her go. She has been Hypnotized and about to be married off to a suitor #retrievechioma.
I wish to commend the Igbo Communities for their effort and will continue to collaborate together till she’s out and gets rehabilitated.
Hypnotize is to influence, control, or direct completely, as by personal charm, words, or domination.
