CONCERNS are mounting over a missing Coventry University student who has not been seen in nearly two weeks.

Ozi AkereleOzeivo Andrew Akerele, 24, left his home on Richmond Street on Friday evening (January 30) to go out socialising with friends, but has not been seen since.

The Nigerian born man, who has only been in the country for a few weeks, was last seen by friends at the Iglu Club on Spon Street at around 3.30am on Saturday, January 31.

Known as Ozi, he is described as black, 6’ 2″ tall, of a slim build and was last seen wearing jeans, blue and white converse trainers and a grey/black zip-up jacket.

Superintendent Chris Edwards, from Coventry Central police station, said: “We believe that Ozi made a call asking to be picked up near to Coventry University in the early hours of Saturday 31 January.

“However, when his lift arrived he was not there and has not been seen since.

“His family are extremely concerned as this is very out of character for him.

“He would not know the area particularly well and we are appealing to anyone who has seen Ozi or knows of his whereabouts to call their local police with details.

“We just want to make sure that he is safe and well.”

If anyone has any information, they are urged to call Coventry police on 101.
