Mrs. Salomi Solomon, the mother of late Plangnan Solomon, has spoken about her daughter’s death.
Plangnan, a 300-level student at the University of Jos, was allegedly murdered by her boyfriend last December. She left home on Christmas Eve and did not come home to celebrate the festive season with her family as planned.
Her family raised an alarm about her disappearance after four days but her body was found in the waterways near Plateau Radio Television Station in Rayfield, Jos with some parts of her already removed.

Speaking with Daily Trust, Mrs. Salmi said “It is not in her character to leave home and stay longer than time. Anytime she left home, at most, she stayed away for one day and returned but the last time she left, it was unusual”.
“Three days after she went out, we didn’t hear from her. I then asked her sisters to call her phone number. We dialed the number severally but there was no response.
“We later heard that a picture of the corpse of a young woman was posted on Facebook but it didn’t occur to us that it was her”.
“The death of Plangnan is painful but there is nothing I can do. As a believer, we just have to be patient but it is painful. We have accepted it in good faith. Children of today don’t listen to their parents anymore. They prefer to do whatever they like. I remember, always warning her to be careful with men”, the mother continued.
“This will serve as a lesson to everyone, especially women. Never trust men all the time. There are good ones among them but many are bad. Whoever seeks a relationship with you, investigate to know if the person is of good character before accepting him. If not, leave him and forge ahead with your life. These are my words to all women,” the mother concluded.
