An employee of a microfinance bank at Kemta Oloko, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, Mr. Olumide Openaike, has been declared missing by his family.

Speaking with Punch on Sunday, his wife, Mrs. Openaike, also an employee of a microfinance bank, said the 35-year-old banker left home for his workplace on Wednesday, January 17 and since then he had not returned home.
“We both left our place of abode, Bode Olude, Abeokuta on that fateful Wednesday. We boarded the cab to Elega junction after which we both departed. I left in a taxi to Onikolobo where I work with a microfinance bank, he was still to trying to get a cab to his workplace at Kemta Oloko, Abeokuta when I left,” she said.
“Around 10 a.m., I tried calling him but his phone rang out. I thought he was busy so I continued with my work until when I got home in the evening and he was nowhere to be found. He did not come back home and his phone was switched off.
“His colleagues at work also said they had called him and that his phone rang out and later it was switched off. So, he did not get to his place of work that day and never returned home.
