Missing Ogun banker found in Niger after six days

Missing banker Olumide Openaike

Olumide Openaike, an employee of a microfinance bank at the Kemta Oloko area of Abeokuta, Ogun State, has been found in Niger State days after he was declared missing.

Mr Openaike was declared missing on January 17.

His wife Temitope, who also works at a microfinance bank in the Onikolobo area of Abeokuta, informed PUNCH of the development on Thursday.

“I am happy to tell you that my husband has been found in a place called Mokwa in Niger State. He called me on Tuesday afternoon,” she said.

Mrs Openaike said her husband contacted her through a resident in Niger State, adding that his abductors made away with his phone.

She further said Openaike made a report at a police station after leaving the custody of his abductors.

“Transportation money was then arranged and sent to him; he got to Ibadan yesterday, Wednesday, where he slept. His family members are at Ibadan. He will be back in Abeokuta today (Thursday),” Mrs Openaike added.

The woman raised alarm after her husband failed to return home from work on January 17.

Spokesperson of the Ogun State Police Command Omolola Odutola confirmed earlier that the case was reported to the police.

“The police formations across the state are already aware and we shall keep spreading the message to give adequate publicity with the ultimate aim of finding him and reuniting him with his family,” Odutola said.
