Ondo: 85-Year-Old Woman Missing After Church Service



The report of a missing 85-year-old woman, Adunni Adelusi, has left the family saddened after she was declared missing after a combined monthly service at the Deeper Life Bible Church’s campground in the FUTA North area of Akure.

According to a report, Adelusi was declared missing on September 8 after the church directed its members to follow another route after the service.

The church was reconstructing the road leading to the campground and had directed its members to pass through a nearby village to their various destinations.

It was reported that Adelusi who is suffering from amnesia went missing after passing through the village.

A cousin of the 85-year-old woman, Asake Akingbohungbe, while speaking with Punch, said all efforts to find her has been fruitless.

She said, “We went for a combined service at the FUTA North gate area of Akure and after the service, she passed through a village at the back of the church, because the church was renovating the main road and she just went into the village and since that time, we have been searching for her.”

“Someone told us that they saw her at the market; later, another person said she saw her at the Ondo garage and that she was later seen somewhere around Adebowale, and I have been to those places to search for her from time to time, but we have not seen her.”

“A particular boy that I showed her picture said he saw her at the Ondo garage but we did not find her there; and when I went there three days ago, a woman, who was giving her food, said she asked her if she was mummy Funlola, but she said she was Mama Bendel. For her to forget her house, I thought she could also forget her name.”

She added that her photographs were given to the district churches in the town that any member that sees her can contact us or the police.

Akingbohungbe further stated that they have gone to all the churches, hospitals and mortuaries to search for her but have not seen her.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Femi Joseph, while speaking on the incident said there was record of the missing woman with the police.
