Family and friends are yet to unravel the mystery behind the sudden disappearance of a 64 year old retired journalist, Mr Inalegwu Odeh. Mr Odeh, a former Press secretary to the former military governor of Benue state, Group Captain Jonah Jang was said to have left his house, in the morning of January 6th, around 6:30 for his usual jogging and did not return.

Narrating the story to  newsmen,  during the family’s visit to the Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom to intimate him about the development, the elder brother  of the missing  Inalegwu, Okpachu Odeh said, on January 6, his brother woke up around 6:30am and told the children in the house that he was going out for his usual morning jogging and did not return.This is one month  and 3 weeks and nobody has heard about him.

He noted that after speaking with his children Inalegwu left the house leaving his phone behind. But under normal circumstances he usually returned  home between 8am -9 am.

Okpachu Odeh stated that the family was  yet to know whether his brother was kidnapped, killed or committed suicide. “We have searched for him all around but to no avail, even if he was  knocked down by a vehicle in Makurdi, by now we would have been contacted but since then, nobody has contacted us,  we have not received any message from anybody about his whereabouts”.

“We have gone round all the mortuaries in Makurdi. “There is a search group comprising of the police and Civil Defence.

“At the initial stage, I reported the matter to the police, but the irony of it is that they have never been to the house. “They don’t even know the location of the house even though I gave them the house address.

“I expected them to have come to the house to do more investigation to find out whether they could get a clue of possible instances which could have led to his sudden disappearance. When asked whether his missing brother had a problem with anybody, he said.”

Okpachu appealed to the Benue State government to assist the family in the search of Inalegwu. Responding, governor Samuel  Ortom who described Inalegwu as a man of integrity urged security agencies to intensify their efforts in the search to ensure that Inalegwu is brought back alive.
