A Nigerian student, Caleb Obari, has been found dead in Odesa Oblast, Ukraine.
The 21-year-old went missing in August after attending a yacht party with friends.
Reports say the body of Obari was found on Saturday, September 12, 2020, near the coastline in Chornomorsk.
The police say the cause of death is yet to be established and his case is currently being investigated as an accident.
The deceased parents released a video after went missing pleading for help to find dear son. In the video, they revealed Obari attended a party with his friends but they returned without him.
According to a volunteer group called Rescue Platform 911, Obari was invited to a party on a boat by Vera Topalova, owner of a BDSM-themed bar Iznanka in Odesa.
Out of about 10 passengers on the boat, Obari was the only foreigner. The boat set sail from the Sauvignon Yacht Club in Odesa and went four kilometers out from the coast but returned without Obari.
The deceased friend who waited for him after the party was over said that when the boat arrived without Obari, other passengers gave his personal belongings, including a mobile phone, to him without any explanation of what happened.
Few days after Obari’s disappearance, Topalova in a Facebook post, admitted to inviting him to the party but said he went swimming in the sea together with other guests and went missing which indicates he had drowned since he couldn’t swim.
After his disappearance, friends took to Twitter to trend the hashtag #JusticeForCaleb and a protest was held near the Nigerian Embassy and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Kyiv on August 31.
