An undergraduate of the prestigious University of Benin,Miss Olive Ize-Iyamu, has been declared missing by her family.
According to reports from her older sister Constant Ebonugwu, she last spoke with Olive on May 17.
She said :-
”I spoke to Olive on Monday, 17th of May. She was supposed to be in school. She is a student of UNIBEN, department of Microbiology.
When I spoke to her on Monday, she said she was in school. I came back from work on Tuesday, I tried calling her but it didn’t go through. I felt it was network issues. On Wednesday through till Sunday, I tried reaching her it didn’t go through. I became worried.
I asked my older brother if he had heard from her, he said no and that he was trying to reach her but her number wasn’t going through.
I said okay, no need for worry. ”
She added that later on, she received a message from one of their cousins, Nosa, asking if she had heard from Olive. She said Nosa who resides in Ajah, told her that they need to look for Olive as he has not heard from her for over 9 days.
”she called three of her friends who she had their numbers and were in her school. She still couldn’t understand that she was in Lagos. She still thought she was in school.
She said she quickly called her hostel mates and they said they hadn’t seen her for like two weeks or so and that she had not been in school. So she had to call Nosa again and asked Nosa when he spoke to Olive and where did she tell him she was.
That was when Nosa opened up to her that Olive has been at his place in Ajah for over three weeks. He said she dressed up and said she was going to see someone, that she got an order to cook for someone as the person paid money into her account. I said cook? Does Olive cook for people? He said that was the story Olive told him. He said it has been 9 days he last heard from her.
She added that instead of wasting time, she had to put the issue out on social media.
Anybody can help. She called her Dad, her elder brother , while Nosa went to the Surulere police station to lay complaint. They were asked to go to Ajah yesterday but nothing has been done. They asked them to send a request to the line she uses so they can give them her last call because Nosa said she used Uber.
They asked if they can trace the Uber driver. The police said they don’t have network.
She further said that they went to the communication company olive uses, they refused to lend any help , stating that their request is confidential and that it has to be made from the police.
We are just stuck. Nothing is being done apart from the social media buzz that I started she concluded.
Anyone with useful information Should please contact the nearest police station or call this number 08033212311.
