27-year-old mother-of-two found dead after four-day search

A 27-year-old woman, Margaret Oyibo Atayi, who was declared missing last Friday, has been found dead.

Her body was reportedly found on Monday evening after she had been missing for about four days.

Announcing the disturbing news in a Facebook post, one Ochanya Chelle, who described herself as a sister of the deceased, wrote: “I thank you all for your relentless support and effort in finding my sister. We found her; she has gone to be with the Lord. My beautiful shooting star. Farewell, my love.”

According to unconfirmed reports being peddled on social media, Margaret hailed from Idoma Ugbokolo, in Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue State, and was last seen around City College of Education, Abacha Road, Mararaba, near Abuja, at about 3 a.m. on Friday, May 17.

Margaret’s mother, Mrs. Helen Atayi, reportedly told a correspondent of PUNCH Online: “She is my daughter. She was 27 years old, married, and had two children.

“She went missing four days ago. We are staying at City College, Abacha Road, in Mararaba. We were sleeping, and she opened the door and ran out at around 3:30 a.m.”

Another sister of Margaret announced her death on Facebook. She wrote, “Sunset at dawn (sic). I want to thank everyone for their enormous help, time, and resources in finding our sister Margaret. Yes, she was found, but has gone to rest with her maker. God bless you all.”

At the time of filing this report, the circumstances surrounding her death remain unclear, and the police are yet to issue an official statement.

Some media outlets quoted her father as saying that “available evidence” showed that Margaret committed suicide, without providing evidence for such alleged conclusion whether she did so through ingestion of poison, gunshot, or whatever.

The questions surrounding Margaret’s disappearance and eventual demise keep floating in the air.
