Ozeivo Akerele search: Mother hands out leaflets

The mother of a missing Nigerian student has said she is becoming increasingly desperate to find him.

Ozeivo Akerele, 24, was last seen at Coventry's Iglu nightclub on Spon Street, at 03:30 GMT on 31 January.

He had only been in the UK for a matter of weeks, studying a masters degree at Coventry University.

His mother Irene Akerele delayed a flight back to Abuja to help hand out leaflets in the city centre.

Police showed his photo to Coventry City fans as they made their way to the Ricoh Arena on Saturday.

Insp Alistair Orencas said officers had searched gardens in the city, and the hunt would now focus on local canals.
