A Nigerian lady, Bolanle Monsurat Olofinjana, with passport number ‘A06971507,’ is said to have disappeared in Dubai, THISDAY has learnt. According to a report, Monsurat was allegedly defrauded and deceived into believing she was relocating to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to secure profitable employment by one Madam Agnes with the help of an agent in Nigeria, one Mr. Lanre.
However, after arriving in the UAE, she was introduced to a Middle Eastern family in Dubai, who took possession of her and shielded her from leaving. “She is unable to leave the place of her enslavement under threat,” the report said. Bolanle is said to be unable to furnish the details of her current location, as a result of her inability to read and understand the Arabic language, although she has access to the internet, via a mobile device.
The information contained inside the report received by THISDAY was provided by Bolanle through this medium. Following up on the report, THISDAY contacted a number contained in the report that is said to belong to Madam Agnes who lives in Oman. She confirmed her own identity and also said she knew Bolanle.
“She came through our office,” Madam Agnes said, adding “and we know she is in a proper place. She is where she’s supposed to be.” When pressed further about the actual location of Bolanle, Madam Agnes repeatedly said “she’s with her sponsor” before terminating the call and refusing to answer subsequent calls put through to her mobile number.
THISDAY was unable to reach Lanre, who is said to have an office at 6, Marina Street, Lagos, a location which seems not to exist. Calls put through to one of the phone numbers said to belong to Lanre, was answered by a man who claimed to be Mr. David and knows nothing about any Bolanle David claimed that he resides in Abuja not Lagos.
