Braimoh’s media aide had already expressed concern over the AA candidate’s whereabouts.
“The last time I heard from him was in the morning when he called from Kabba town, but all attempts to get through to him since that time proved abortive,” Yakubu said.
“His mobile lines have been switched off, including his entourage.”
