“My grandmother in Ondo State said she heard his name announced on a radio station to be among some people that were arrested in a state in the South-East. But, she is too old to remember which particular state it was.”

The distraught brother appealed to the public to help with information that might help in finding his brother.

“My mum has not been told yet because she is hypertensive and we fear what will happen if we tell her. Everyone is worried,” he added.
