The Rivers State Chapter of the National Youth Council of Nigeria has said two of its members are missing after they attended an event at the Ministry of Justice Conference Hall in Port Harcourt.

Chijioke Ihunwo, the state Chairman of NYCN said the duo have not been seen four days after they attended a youth conference in the State capital.

Ihunwo gave the names of the missing NYCN members as Napoleon Spiff, who was the Chairman of the Council in the Rivers East Senatorial District, while the other is Zachariah Levi George, the National President of the National Union of Rivers State Students.

He, however, appealed to security agencies in the state to launch a manhunt for the missing youths, adding that families of the missing members have been in distress over their whereabouts, even as he expressed fears that they may have been kidnapped.

“I want to use this medium to inform the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, the Director, Department of State Services and other sister security agencies that the Vice-Chairman, NYCN, Rivers East Senatorial District and the National President, National Union of Rivers State Students have been missing.

“They were missing after they left the Ministry of Justice conference hall at the end of the International Youth Day on the 12th of August and have not been seen by their family members.

“I call on the Commissioner of Police and all the security agencies to as a matter of urgency lookout for these two young men. We have confidence that they can find out what happened and fish out those involved in their arrest or kidnap and bring them to book,” Ihunwo stated.
