Nigerian man who went missing at the Canadian embassy a day to his visa interview, identified in Festac as Lagos APC ward chairman

It has been uncovered that the man who went missing earlier this month, Soji Abraham is the Chairman of the All Progressive Congress in Ward C, FESTAC Town, Lagos.

Thursday night, February 4, 2021, at 322 Road, I Close Festac Town, just a day to his visa interview at the Canadian embassy was the last time Mr. Soji was seen.

It was also reported that when he went missing, the politician was working on the membership revalidation of his party at FESTAC.

Adeniyi, the brother of the victim, has now said that his family has yet to be asked for ransom or given any information about his whereabouts as his phones are off.

Adeniyi also disclosed that a missing case was reported at the FESTAC Police Station, where that the Divisional Police Officer assured his family that the matter will be investigated

 

Speaking with Punch NG: He said,

“I was at home when my brother’s wife called me that her husband had yet to return home; we called some of his friends and we were told that they saw him last on 322 Road, 1 Close, FESTAC.

We called his number but it was switched off; when we tried calling the following day, it rang out and nobody picked it until it was switched off again; since then, we have been calling his phone on a daily basis to see if we can reach him.

We count on the police to bring my brother back, because his family has been having sleepless nights, especially the wife and children. If it is true that he was kidnapped, the abductors would have contacted us and demanded ransom, but nobody has called us to ask for money; we put our trust in God for his release.

He was supposed to go for a visa interview at the Canadian embassy the day after he went missing, but unfortunately, my brother could not make it to the embassy and we don’t know his whereabouts; I pray that God will spare his life. I have not been myself since then.

Mr. Ade, a member of the party also lamented over the alleged abduction which has left everyone in disarray.

He said:

Soji is our chairman and everybody was working on the revalidation of the members of the party in FESTAC; how he was abducted is still a mystery to so many of us. I was at Agboju when I received a phone call from a friend, who told me that the chairman was missing, and since then, his family has been making efforts to reach him through his phone.

Why he was abducted is still not clear to me, because nobody was contesting the chairmanship post with him and we all like him, because he carried us along in everything he does and recognises the youth. I pray to God to spare and bring him back safely.

Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the state Police Public Relations Officer, confirmed that Soji’s wife reported that her husband had been threatening to leave the house before he went missing.

He stated:

One Zainab Abraham, the wife of Soji Abraham, reported at the police station a case of a missing person and said her husband had been threatening to pack out of the house and that is the case; we don’t have a case of abduction.

“We have sent out radio messages and made normal communication announcements, but the DPO and the Area Commander will decide on other police actions to be taken.
