Team-mates of Everton defender Joseph Yobo are hoping for the safe return of his kidnapped brother, a club spokesman said on Sunday.

Gunmen in Nigeria abducted Norum Yobo as he made his way home from a nightclub in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Ransom demands usually follow kidnappings in the oil-rich Niger Delta region of the country, although no contact has yet been established with the offenders.

"We have sent a couple of messages to Joseph offering any assistance that we can provide him," Everton spokesman Ian Ross revealed.
