Faruq Osilalu, a Nigerian based in the United States, was an excellent father, provider, and hard worker, according to his wife Alayna Sibgleton, until he got missing in September.

Singleton officially reported to the police on Set. 27, and two days later, the authorities found Osilalu’s car, a 2013 Toyota Avalon, on North Avenue in Baltimore.

The car which he rode for a transport company was then in possession of a new driver carrying a passenger, according to the police.

On the day he got missing, Osilalu gave somebody a ride. Ad he never returned home since then.

On October 4 at 6:05 p.m, officers were called to the 3400 block of Paton Avenue where a corpse was found.

The corpse was taken to the Medical Examiner’s office and was identified as Osilalu on October 26.

He was 22

Singleton, whom he wedded in May after they had a baby in April, said it has been extremely hard living without Osilalu.

“He’s an excellent father. Hard worker, he’s a provider. We need him home”, WMAR-2 News, an ABC affiliate, quoted her as saying.

“He will never go missing for this amount of time and not tell anyone”, she said.
