Nigerian mother in appeal for missing Coventry student

A woman from Nigeria has made an appeal to trace her son, who went missing in Coventry almost a month ago.

Ozievo Akerele, 24, had just started a masters degree in the city's university.

He was last seen in the early hours of 31 January at the Iglu nightclub, on Spon Street.

Police said they were becoming increasingly concerned for his welfare.

Irene Akerele flew over from Abuja to help in the search.

She said she was "holding on to the hope" that he was still alive.
