Family seeks help as woman goes missing during church service

The missing woman was said to have followed her neighbour to a church programme.

The family of one Eno Okon, has come out to seek help regarding the disappearance of the 54-year-old woman, who went missing during a church programme.

It would be recalled that on Friday, August 11, 2023, Okon went for the annual programme of a Pentecostal church along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, when she went missing.

The missing woman, who’s a resident of Adesan in the Mowe area of Ogun State, offered to follow her neighbour who invited her to the programme.

It was gathered that after some hours into the programme, Eno told her neighbour, whom she was sitting with that she wanted to visit the restroom.

After noticing that she didn’t return, the neighbour decided to look around for her but could not find her.

Her husband said efforts to locate her whereabouts since then had been futile.

He said, “My wife and I used to live in Lagos before we relocated to Mowe. I was not at home when her neighbour invited her that night. She was also not the only one who followed her, the woman invited other neighbours who followed her to the programme,

They all sat together so that they wouldn’t miss each other. When it was around 2am, she told them that she wanted to urinate. When she did not return, they started to look for her. They later thought she had gone home.”

“It was when they got home that they discovered that she was not at home. When I got to know, I went to meet the woman and we went back to the church to look for her. We also went to Sagamu when we thought she mistakenly followed another bus from there.”

Okon said the incident was reported at three different police stations, adding that the church’s leadership was also informed about the development.

When contacted, Ogun State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Omolola Odutola said she was not aware of the report.

She, however, promised to follow up.
