The victim identified as Mr Hope Ejerovbo, is reported to have arrived Ajah, Lagos State, on Sunday, July 4, 2016, before he went missing the following day.

Mr Ejerovbo who is a father to three children, left his niece's residence where he was putting up, for a walk but never returned and his numbers have been unreachable.

The victim is said to have been in Lagos to facilitate his trip to the United Kingdom, where he was set to reunite with his wife and three kids. Mr Ejerovbo's disappearance has left his family panicking especially since they are yet to receive any ransom calls.

His niece's husband who identified himself as Abraham, reveals that Mr Ejerovbo was last seen at about 7pm, last week Monday, July 4, 2016 around the Lekki-Epe Expressway.

Speaking with The Nation, Mr Abraham said:

“He decided to take a walk down the street to familiarize himself with the environment and never returned. He is an easy-going man, very thorough and does not have many friends.

“I saw him when I came out of my room in the morning and he said he was going to take a walk down the street. I believed it would be a short walk because he does not really know this area.

“In fact, it was my wife who opened the gate for him and that was the last we saw of him. At around8:30am, we became worried about his whereabouts. We tried calling his mobile phone and discovered it was switched off and that got us extremely worried.

“I stepped out and searched the whole neighbourhood till noon but did not find him. I then went to the police station to report him missing."

Mr Ejerovbo is reportedly fluent in Urhobo and English languages, over five feet tall and dark in complexion.
