A 13-year-old boy named Goodluck Onwe has been re-united with his family in Anambra after being rescued in Ebonyi State. 

He had earlier been declared missing and was later found wandering the streets of Abakaliki before he was rescued on the 4th of February 2024 by operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) of Ebonyi State.

Investigation revealed that the boy stayed with a relative in Abakaliki but ran away from home with the intent to return to his parents who live at Peter Okonkwo Street Aguleri, Anambra East LGA, Anambra State.

The Public Relations Officer of NSCDC, Anambra State Command, SC Edwin Okadigbo, said that NSCDC Anambra State Command was contacted by the Ebonyi State Command to trace the origin and parents of the child.

He said: “In response, the command made an effort to locate his parents for identification and collection. After a detailed verification process, the boy has been handed over to Mr Onwe Sabastine, his father.”

Meanwhile, the state Commandant of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, Anambra State Command, Comdt Olatunde Maku, has advised parents/guardians to disciline children with love and understanding.

He said: “Parenting is not an easy job. It involves responsibilities that seem to change every day. The daily tasks and roles one performs as a parent are bound to change as the child gets older. 

“Parents should adapt the parenting of a child with love and understanding, without unnecessary display of authority over their children which instills fear in them to always run away from home.”
