Missing Engineering Project Director Yemi Adamoleku said the information was collected from some media outlets and the public reported missing persons.

The report adds: “As a citizen-led organization, we understand the task ahead. We are not only immersed in good governance and the building of a true democracy, but we are also doing our part to fill the gaps created by years of good governance and self-interest.

“It is disappointing that Nigeria, Africa’s most populous country since 2006, has not had a national census!

“The number of people missing, not just kidnappings, killings, organ transplants and human trafficking and terrorism, has been rising for more than a decade. However, little has been done by various administrations to bring the missing back to life or anything else, to create a database of missing persons and to open an investigation when needed.

This edition covers some missing media reports, including those who lived or died across the country from 2019-2021.
