Minnesota State University, Mankato alumni and former president of Black Intelligent Gentlemen, Abdul-Hafeez Nakumbe, has been found after being reported missing in early December 2019.

Nakumbe was reported missing by family and friends on Dec. 2 after they lost contact with him when he went to the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport. A search party was organized on Facebook for Dec. 15 in the Northside community where family and friends set up flyers showing Nakumbe’s face hoping someone would come with information.

Family members were eventually able to learn his whereabouts and contact him on Dec. 16. It is confirmed he was not in Minnesota, but his family were able to establish that he was safe and where he was early in the day. “I want to personally thank everyone who was involved in this process. Again, without this collective and compassionate national community action we would not have been able to find him,” Sagirah Shahid, a family associate said.

Nakumbe went to MNSU from 2011-2017 where he was involved in multiple organizations, including Black Intelligent Gentlemen.
