The kidnappers of Michael Obi, the father of Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel, have made contact with the family.

The midfielder’s father has not been seen since Friday evening, but the family have now received two phone calls from the abductors.

Despite finding out the news of his father going missing on Saturday, Mikel played in Sunday’s 0-0 draw for Chelsea away at Stoke.

A family source told KickOffNigeria.com: “They called mummy [Mikel's mother] and told her that we should not bother looking for Daddy in Jos because he has been taken to Lagos.”

A second call from the abductors was also made to the family revealing the location of the car which Mr Obi was driving when he was taken.

But Tony Obi, the eldest of the Obi children, refused to say where the car had been found.

“Yes, we have found the car. I can’t say anything more for now,” he said.

Mikel had earlier made an emotional plea on TV appealing to his father’s abductors for his safe return.

“I’ve always tried to help the country, this is the time for the country to help me,” Mikel told Sky Sports News.

“Whoever knows where my dad is should please contact me.”
