“That was the last time we heard about them. We kept trying their (phone) numbers but they have remained switched off. They have also not returned home since then. The incident happened on Saturday.”

Another acquaintance of the missing young men, who spoke on condition of anonymity, disclosed that they had searched for them at police stations and other places without any trace of them.

He said, “At first, we thought it was a case of kidnap but we have been to all the police stations in the state capital including the Anti-Cultism/Kidnapping squad at Cultural Centre, Zone 6, and even the police state headquarters and have not found them. They have not returned home since then and all their numbers have remained switched off.”

According to SaharaReporters, the state police spokesperson, Irene Ugbo, on Wednesday said that she was not aware of the incident but promised to follow up on the case.
