The Commandant of the Air Force Secondary School, Jaji in Kaduna State, OO Ogundana, has gone missing.
Reliable military sources informed Journalists that the naval commodore might have been missing for days before it was noticed on Monday.
According to the sources, Mrs Ogundana, with service number NN/2367, was last seen on Friday, September 13.
Her continuous absence over the weekend aroused more suspicion on Monday when she did not show up at work.
The source said it was when her official residence at House 22, AVM Also Crescent, was checked before it was officially confirmed that the senior naval officer had gone missing.
“The senior officer was actually seen last on Friday,13th September at the secondary school which is located within the Cantonment,” said the source.
“The incident was reported when her cell phone kept ringing and she was not picking the calls.”
The source said her house door was forced open when it was discovered that the phone was ringing from inside her sitting room.
The source said all efforts to reach her other Glo and Airtel numbers proved abortive.
It was also discovered that her vehicle, a Toyota Highlander of metallic grey colour and registered with a Lagos number AAA 434 CF, was also missing.
Newsmen learnt that the college authorities have intensified efforts to unravel the whereabouts of the missing officer.
Sources within the cantonment worried whether the female officer has been abducted.
“One cannot be sure of what exactly happened,” said a source who pleaded anonymity.
It is very unusual and people are worried this should not be a case of forced abduction since her car too cannot be found.”
The Nigeria Navy headquarters seemed unaware of this development, as the spokesperson of the Nigerian Navy, Suleiman Dahun, said he had not received the information at the time PREMIUM TIMES called him.
“Honestly, I don’t know anything about it; you can call the PRO Jaji, please,” he said.
Efforts to contact the PRO Jaji was not successful at the time this report was filed.
