First of all, this is all speculation from the limited information that has been made public via the news. The specifics of the case have been taken from news reports and have been confirmed by their respective police departments. Between mid September 2020 and early May 2021 (7.5 months), three university students of a very similar profile disappeared mysteriously, to be found tragically deceased in various bodies of water around the UK. As it stands, all three deaths are being treated as 'not suspicious' by law enforcement. This is just a speculation into whether or not these cases may be connected. I want to stress that is a personal opinion and not that of the police. I'm also incredibly sorry if this causes any hurt or offence to anyone close to these individuals (or in general), we only wish to help find some answers. September 18th 2020. Blessing Olusegun, 21 years old. A British Nigerian student from South London, at a university unspecified anywhere - but very likely to be a university in Sussex. Last seen on CCTV at 1am on 18/09/20 walking by the harbour but nothing beyond that, and last heard from at 1:25am, (a text to her mother). Her body was found at 6:20am, 5 hours later on a beach in Bexhill, East Sussex. The postmortem concluded she died by drowning. RIP Blessing. More information here: Blessing Olusegun: Petition demands answers over death Police insist they investigated Blessing Olusegun's death properly March 23rd 2021. Richard Okorogheye, 19 years old. A British Nigerian student from West London studying at Oxford Brookes University. Richard suffered from sickle cell (a severe form of anaemia) and was shielding from COVID due to this. According to Richard's mum, Richard would only leave the house for blood transfusions at the hospital. A brief summary of the night of 22/03/21: Richard left his home and headed towards Ladbroke Grove at about 8.30pm. Several news sources stated that he told his mum he was going to see a friend ---> He was seen boarding a 23 bus southbound in Ladbroke Grove at 8:44pm (see file attached for the 23 London bus route). Wherever Richard got off, he boarded a taxi. According to Google maps, the 23 bus route would have taken him between Chepstow, Queensway, Bishop's Road, Paddington, Edgware Road, Marble Arch and Hyde Park, before heading back West. ---> Richard boards a taxi to Loughton, Essex. ---> He is seen walking alone along Smarts Lane, Loughton, towards Epping Forest at 12:39am (see file 2 for this walk on Google Maps). Since that there has been no further sightings, and his phone has not been in use since his disappearance. In the CCTV footage however Richard appears to be using a phone, looking at it while he's walking. (see files 3-5) for screenshots. you can watch the 0:20 second clip here: CCTV footage of Richard Okorogheye This would indicate he was using a different phone or sim card. Some other details: Richard left without his wallet, bus pass and bank card. This means everything he purchased - a bus journey and a very expensive taxi - were paid for online. More importantly, he left without his medication or a jacket, which is very dangerous for someone with sickle cell. He was quoted to "Love life, had plans and aspirations". The interesting thing is Richard's mother, Evidence Joel, says that he has never mentioned Loughton and is shocked he even knew where it was. Furthermore, she said Richard spent a lot of time on his PS5, and quotes she "feels strongly Richard was lured to meet somebody" via chat rooms on his PS5.

RIP Richard. May 1st 2021. Olisa Odukwe, 20 years old. A British Nigerian student at the University of Bristol, disappeared on his bike in the early hours of Saturday, 1/05/21. He was last seen leaving his home in Redland. The following timeline is taken from this thread: UK - UK - Olisa Odukwe, 20, Bristol, 1 May 2021 Olisa left his home in Redland, Bristol at 4am (his phone recorded him cycling through Harbourside at 4am. This is the last recorded location from his phone) ---> He arrived at VShed (Whetherspoons) at 4:18am. (see file 6 for Google maps). He stayed there for some time, unknown if alone or with someone. ---> After this point, his phone is either switched off or thrown away, as there was no activity. ---> He arrives back at his girlfriend's house at 5am ---> He stays for 2 hours, then tells his girlfriend he's "getting up", and leaves on his bike at 7am ---> He is then reported to be seen on the docks, and that is the last sighting of Olisa. Olisa also went to Leigh Woods, Bristol on the Friday, the day before his disappearance. This was his route (see file 7): It is unmentioned / unknown why Olisa did this. Read more here: More information released in the search for missing Bristol Uni student Olisa Odukwe His body was recovered on Tuesday, 4/05/21, from Bristol Harbour. 4 days after his disappearance. His phone and bike have not been located. His wallet was left at home. His disappearance has been quoted as "completely out of character". RIP Olisa. This is incredibly tragic news and especially alarming because the cases seem to follow a pattern; The individuals found deceased are all Nigerian They are all university students They are aged 19 - 21 They have all been found in bodies of water around the UK (beach, harbour & lake) Their disappearances were described as out of character All their deaths are currently being treated as not suspicious Either the time they were out or the area they were out in was not usual for them There is only 7 months between the deaths (Geography) Again, this is purely speculation, this is not consistent with the views of the police. The police departments investigating these cases - Sussex Police, Essex Police, Met Police and Avon & Somerset Police - are not as it stands considering the line of query that any third party is involved. Personally, it's not something I can rule out. What do people think about this? I want to repeat I am deeply sorry if this causes any offence to anyone and I wish the friends and families of these individuals love and healing.
