“It would be improper to say particularly what has happened to the girl. It is true the lady is missing. She was seen last at her hostel when she was seen entering her hostel room to pick some things and went out after returning from Ondo,” Ekiti State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr. Alberto Adeyemi, reportedly said.

According to Funke’s mother, Mrs. Rosaline Adewodun, in an interview with journalists, the missing undergraduate called her twice from captivity, requesting that the family should be praying for her safety and escape.

She said, “Funke called me in the night of Sunday that we should be praying for her. Again around 1pm on Monday, she called, saying we should not worry again as she was Ok.

“I however, insisted I would come to the school as I already left Ondo and was in Akure.

“She came to Ondo to stay with me for the holiday and later she returned to school. That was 23 April. On Monday, she was said to have come to her hostel around 8am and left again.

“Nigerians should help me look for my daughter. She has been missing for almost twenty days. I have been in Ado-Ekiti for four days looking for her everywhere. We have reported to the police.”
