In a new development following the report of a missing 22-year-old female student of the Cross River University of Technology, Priscilla Ojong, her family members have said they are yet to get through to her or see her.
Priscilla was in the early hours of today, declared missing after she reportedly left Calabar for Lagos, three weeks ago to see a male friend of hers… the news made the rounds on social media with a lot of people creating awareness of her absence.
However, on her Instagram page some hours ago, the young lady posted a video of herself to dispel the rumours of her being missing with the caption,
Am not missing am in calaba ,thanks for your love but your guys should always verify something before spreading it please am not lost am fine ….abeg I say calaba
Not long after, another video was uploaded on her page where she gives a statement of not being missing as widely spread online. Watch below,

Upon seeing this update, some close relations of the young lady reached out to us to say they are yet to see Priscilla or hear from her and they think the video she made was done under duress.
A close relation of hers who was able to speak with us revealed the process they have and are going through to facilitate her recovery.
According to them, Priscilla left for Lagos on the 20th of April — they confirmed this after a close friend of hers notified them of the transportation company she used. The transportation company was able to provide a manifest of the passengers that traveled that day and Priscilla’s name was among the list. This potentially verifies the earlier report where one of Priscilla’s friends said she received a call from Priscilla informing her that she had arrived Lagos safely and will be staying over for just the weekend.
This close relation shared that earlier today, around the time Priscilla was giving updates on her social media page, Priscilla spoke with one of her friend who she told that she’s fine and will be returning to Calabar tomorrow, as opposed to what she said in her video, that she currently is in Calabar.
As earlier reported, after the police were contacted concerning Priscilla’s missing case they’ve swung into action and have taken the necessary steps into investigation.
