AKWA Ibom State Commissioner of Police, CP Zaki Ahmed has reunited a four year old boy, Master Victor Samuel Asuquo, who got missing on Sunday October 13, 2019.

 The four-year old attended a church service at Deeper Life Bible Church, IBB Way, Uyo, with his senior cousin, one Michael Godswill, who resides at Ikot Obio Nkan in Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government Area.

 Reports said, after service, the whereabouts of young Master Victor could not be determined. A good Samaritan, one Ekemini Stanley, residing at No. 4 Ukpong Ebe Street, Uyo, found the child along his street and took him to “C” Division Police Station, Aka/Etinan.

 The same day, at about 9pm when the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), SP Odiko Macdon visited the division, he saw the said boy and queried what a child at that age was doing at the police station, but was informed that he was a found child.

He asked the officers concerned to bring him to the P.P.R Department the following day while concerted effort were made to contact the parents.

 It is heartwarming to state that on Tuesday at about 3pm the police located the mother.

 The Police Commissioner while handing over the child to the mother, called on parents to always be security conscious and see the security of their children as paramount.

 On his part, Mr. Ekemini, who found the child said he was tempted to keep the boy but opted to do the right thing before the law.

 The CP lauded his good gesture and urged other citizens of the state to emulate him.

 Ahmed impressed by the brilliance of the boy whose mother said was not going to school because of funds, awarded scholarship to him to commence school on Thursday,  October 17, 2019.
