NEWS AGENCY OF NIGERIA • JULY 19, 2021 Julius Ssekitoleko Julius Ssekitoleko The Ugandan athlete who went missing in Japan on July 16, after failing to qualify for the Tokyo Olympics, has been spotted at Nagoya Station in central Japan by CCTV, news agency Kyodo reported on Monday citing a police source. Uganda’s Olympic delegation said on Friday that weightlifter Julius Ssekitoleko had been registered as missing from a team training camp in Izumisano, some 200 kilometres south-west of Nagoya. He is being sought by the police. Kyodo cited Izumisano officials as saying the athlete left a note at his hotel saying he wanted to work in Japan before buying a train ticket to Nagoya. Beatrice Ayikoru, head of the Ugandan delegation, said the 20-year-old was supposed to fly home on Tuesday, adding the team would cooperate with authorities in the search. The Ugandan team arrived in Japan in June but only started training two weeks ago. This is because they tested positive twice for coronavirus despite every member being vaccinated.
