Three is tension at the main campus of Delta State University (DELSU), Abraka over the missing 300-level student of Mass Communication, Elozino Ogege, who left her current apartment in search of a new one since last Friday and has not been seen.

A close source to the missing person, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said: “She is planing to relocate from her current hostel to another, so went in search of an apartment.
“Before she left the house that morning, she had called her god-mother and told her she was going to look for an apartment.
“After some few hours, the god-mother received a call through Elozino’s phone but it was a man that made the call and requested that the god-mother should pay a certain amount for the apartment so she was surprised because they never discussed anything about her(god-mother) paying for the apartment.
“She then requested that the phone be given to the owner (Elozino) but the man ended the call.
“She then called back but it was a woman that picked the call and again requested the phone be given to the owner, but the woman ended the call.
“The god-mother perceiving that something is fishy called a second time, but the phone was switched off and since then Elozino has not been found.”
