He said while Jennifer is given the scholarship to further her Education, other aspect of her welfare will also be adequately catered for.
He said, “The lawmaker has directed that she should be placed on automatic scholarship so that her vision and mission on earth be redirected, channelled into something positive .
“We commend the security agencies for their intervention. If not that they alerted the lawmaker who sent us to go after the girl, maybe her mission on earth would have been scattered.

“From the time I joined, life have not been easy and I have younger ones I care for that was why I went into the networking business.
“Am happy today that someone took me up to help me further my Education. This has always been my dream but my family doesn’t have the money.I want to be a banker in life and to help people around. A lot of people are frustrated in life and if I have the opportunity I will help them.
“I have not seen the man called Chinedu Ogah in person but I normally hear my people talk about him it’s My prayers that God will continue to bless him”.#
