Soyebo Oluwakemi, a sales agent, was declared missing by her family members in Lagos since on Monday June 3, 2019, after she left office at the close of work that day.
Her elder brother, Sulyman, who spoke to City Round on the phone on Friday, said she was dropped off by a taxi driver on Thursday, June 6th by the street leading to her residence at MTN Bustop along the Lagos-Badagry expressway – some distance away from their house.
Her neighbors rushed to her and immediately took her home to her mother. Oluwakemi was said to be looking so pale and tired and could not utter a word. She is yet to narrate to her family members what happened to her.
She is currently in a hospital where doctors are examining her. Her family members believe she was kidnapped. Sulyman said:
“Yesterday (Thursday), around 6pm while everybody was still searching for her, she walked into the street. We learnt that she was dropped off by a taxi and that the driver zoomed off. Residents who saw her at that point were overjoyed and did not pay attention to the taxi.
“When she got home, she was given water because she had lost strength. She started vomiting and was rushed to the hospital. She has not been able to speak up till now. Series of tests have been carried out on her. I think it was a case of kidnapping. She is conscious now but she has not spoken. My mother was crying uncontrollably. She was happy. She could not eat or sleep throughout the days she (Soyebo) was missing.”
