He said his father got sick and died in 2019. Before his death, he tried to get more information about his mum from his dad, but it proved abortive.
Seyi said his mother married his father, Adekunle, and they gave birth to him and his sibling, Yemi.
Part of the story reads:
"According to the information he gathered, his parents once lived in Shobande Street Akoka, Yaba Lagos around 1993-1996 before she left. Since then, he hasn’t set his eyes on her till date.
"He said he tried to elicit information about her for several years while his father was sick but he couldn't get any because of his sickness till he passed on.
"He further added that he really wants to know if his mother is still alive or dead so at least he can have solace and put a dead end to the whole thing. He said he had gone through a lot mentally and psychologically and he has tried many ways possible to locate her but because he only has one picture of her and he only knows her by her first name (Tawakalitu) which was what saw in his birth certificate."

"If they can go to Shobande street and ask the old folks who are still alive and around there, maybe they could get a lead on her."
"If he doesn't have many details about the mom, at least the father’s state of origin and village can be of help."
"I pray the search turns out positive."
