The parents of a Nigerian student who went missing in Ukraine after being invited to a party on a yacht have issued a plea for help in getting information about their son’s whereabouts.
Nigerian citizen, Obari-Mark Caleb, born in 1999, is a recent graduate of Sumy State Agrarian University. He has a residence permit in Ukraine.
He was invited by a woman to a party on a yacht on Thursday, August 20. He attended the party in the company of his friends but didn’t return with them.
According to volunteers of the search platform, “911”, Caleb disappeared during a walk. He was on the yacht of the private yacht club “Sauvignon” (Ovidiopol district of Odessa region) when he disappeared.
He reportedly went for the walk in the company of 8 people (including the captain of the yacht).
In the Odessa region, the police are investigating the circumstances of the disappearance of the Nigerian citizen while on a yacht.
Caleb’s companions claim that he disappeared while swimming. Caleb cannot swim and speaks only English, according to students and teachers of Sumy College.
According to EN24 News, Caleb was invited to the yacht by a woman who, according to public figures, is the owner (or employee) of one of the well-known local clubs with an ambiguous reputation.
The “911” platform has a photo of Caleb, in which he was in the club in the company of the aforementioned young woman. The photo, according to volunteers, was taken a few weeks ago.
Currently, criminal proceedings have been opened under Part 1 of Art. 115 (premeditated murder) of the Criminal code of Ukraine.
It has been reported that Caleb’s comrades independently hired two private divers who are exploring the Black Sea, where he could have drowned.
Meanwhile, Caleb’s parents have released a video, demanding answers. His father begged the Nigerian authorities to get involved and help him find his son as he has reached out to Ukraine to ask questions without getting any satisfactory answer.
Caleb’s mother said she believes someone is behind her son’s disappearance and she begged for help and prayers in uncovering the mystery. She asked how it is possible that he will go out with friends and they will come back without him and not have an answer as to what happened to him.
