The family of the late Simon Nnadozie has appealed to the Nigerian Police Force to intensify efforts in the search and rescue of its son, David Nnadozie (junior), who has been missing since Sunday January 2, 2022.
David Nnadozie (jnr), aged 25, according to a statement from the family, had visited Dems Park, Akowonjo area of Lagos for picnic in company of his mother and two other siblings and has not returned home since then.
The disappearance of David Nnadozie (jnr), known among his friends and peers as, ‘Prince,’ is coming barely 10 months after his relocation to house No 6 Wole Soyinka street, Iyana-Ipaja, Lagos after an outing with some family members.
Spokesperson for the family, Chinwendu Nnadozie, said that the entire Nnadozie family of Unubi in Nnewi-South Local Government Area had been thrown into confusion following the sudden disappearance of David.
“We reported the case of his disappearance at the Gowon Estate Divisional Police Office, Iyana-Ipaja on 5th January, 2022 and we have been keeping in touch with the police trying to get update but till now nothing has been heard of him”.
Chinwendu, an aunt to the missing lad, said, “It has been over two weeks now since his disappearance.We are appealing to the Nigerian Police to help us by intensifying search for our son. I know that they are capable of rescuing him wherever he may be”.
The news of the sudden disappearance of the young man was shocking and more of seen as a bad omen to the family starting the new year on a sad note, Chinwendu said, adding however, “We have resorted to prayers for his safe return. With God, nothing is imposible”.
According to her, “It is only God that can help us in times like this. His disappearance is really a mystery. What can we do than keep praying that God keeps him safe and also help the police in their search and rescue operations.
“If we call his number sometimes it will get through and sometimes it will be indicating, ‘unreacheable’. The police had told us last week that they have been able to trace his number to Lagos, and since then we have not heard anything again from them,” she lamented.
