In memory of our friend and colleague.
On the night of Friday, the 7th of March 2014, our friend and colleague disappeared. He was with a friend in his rented apartment in Port Harcourt on that night when he received a call. After answering the call at about 8pm, he told his guest he had to dash out to meet some colleague and that he would be back shortly. That was the last time anyone saw him alive, he met with the persons but never returned. He had planned to travel to home to his family in Warri on Saturday but sadly, their expectation to see him alive and well was cut short. He never came home.
By Monday his family was fully panicked. They checked and confirmed that there were no accidents on the PHC-WAR road and that his name was not on any manifest of the more popular transport companies. Further enquiries revealed that there had been several withdrawals from his account via his ATM card along the Eleme/Onne axis of Port Harcourt.
It was then assumed that he had been kidnapped, though there was never any call or demand for ransom.
They proceed to confirm the code they have forced the victim to divulge is correct by using it in any nearby ATM machine (also definitely check the balance), after which they kill the person and set-up another deal for the next weekend while they continue withdrawing from their victims account(s).
This scenario fits our colleague’s case.
4. ALWAYS let people know what you are up to (or where you are going to)
5. Be very wary of “deals” that seem too good to be true
