Korinjoh, a retired Naval Officer, and his missing wife with their children lived at their residence around Shibiri  in Ojo area of Lagos State.

According to the distraught husband, he was away for a Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) elite referees’ training on July 2, 2017 when the wife, who is suffering from amnesia insisted on travelling to Ghana to visit their daughter in school saying ever since all efforts to find her have come to naught.

“My wife suffers memory loss. Normally, I don’t allow her to go out of the house without proper monitoring,” he told The Sun.

The worried football referee informed the paper that Mrs. Korinjoh developed the health problem sometime in April 2017.

He told the publication of his frustration including how he visited the telecommunication service provider his missing wife subscribed to.

His word, “It was my first time of going to Banana Island, where the provider is located. There, they refused to listen to me until I created a lot of drama, which attracted the presence of top management staff who now told me that they never attended to an individual.

“Now, I have written a letter to the police establishment at Panti, Yaba, Lagos. When I submitted it, they took it from me, but till now, they have not been able to track my wife’s call log.”
