The families of Celine Ndudim and Afiba Tandor, two young women who went missing after visiting a businessman in Aba town, Abia State, Nigeria, believe the girls are still alive and are appealing for public help.

Celine and Afiba disappeared on April 27, 2024, after meeting with a businessman named Andrew Amechi. Celine’s sister, Tessy Ndudim, has been actively seeking help from authorities and the public since then. Tessy revealed that Celine had called her on the day they went missing, saying they had been kidnapped by the man they were visiting.

Despite filing a complaint with the police in Aba, Tessy felt the response was slow and ineffective. Her persistence led to the arrest of the suspect, Andrew Amechi, by the Umuahia Command after she petitioned Police Zone 9. Reports have surfaced that Amechi, who was attempting to flee arrest, died in the process, and there are claims that he had murdered the two women.

Tessy Ndudim recounted the events in an interview with BBC News Pidgin, describing the distress and frustration the families have faced. She has called on the Abia State government to intervene, noting similar complaints from other individuals.

Afiba Tandor’s husband also expressed his belief that his wife is still alive. He urged the Nigerian police to intensify their efforts to locate and rescue the missing women. The families remain hopeful that ongoing investigations will provide answers and bring the girls home safely.
