Middle aged Ms Patience Komone, a native of Otughievwen, Ughelli South Local Government Area (LGA), Delta state has been declared missing.
A family statement noted that Patience (fondly Pat) has not been seen since Tuesday 27 July when she was reportedly sighted at the foodcrop market in Umeh, Isoko South Local.
Ese Komoke, immediate younger brother, narrated that, “From the little we know thus far, Pat, 50, who lives near the Tipper Garage, Orhuwhorun Road, Udu LGA, left her home that Tuesday to Umeh where she periodically buys pepper and sundry vegatables for sale along Sapele Road, Effurun, Uvwie LGA, Delta.
“Normally she would go and return same day. The family started getting worried when she neither returned nor got in touch on phone. Since then, she has not been reachable. No contact, no whereabout.
We’ve been to Umeh a couple of times. It’s hard to find anyone give a clear information, but we’re told she was seen at the market. One account says she bought a sack of pepper, packed for her that she hadn’t paid.
“The seller had to open and resell to other customers when she didn’t return to come pay and collect it. We have notified the police and it’s all still too hazy. We appeal to anyone with useful information about her whereabout to contact the family or nearest police station.
