A Nigerian family is looking for their daughter who secretly travelled to Abuja to see a Facebook friend.
The girl, 16, is identified as Chidinma Anita Chukwudum and the family says she travelled from Lagos to the FCT.
Chidinma was said to have finished writing her West African School Certificate Examination, WAEC this year.
She also wrote the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination and is awaiting admission into the Lagos State University, LASU.

According to the family, chats on Chidinma’s Facebook account shows that the person she travelled to meet promised to take her to Germany.
Before her journey, Chidinma left a written note, saying she was going to work hard and make her family proud.

Her mother, Mrs. Uche Chukwudum asked those with useful information on Chidinma’s whereabouts to call 08033072719.
