On Friday 15, four months later, rumors went viral that Mbijiwe had left all whatsapp groups raising more alarm of his whereabouts and who could still be holding him hostage.
However according to WhatsApp terms and conditions, any user who becomes inactive for more than three months, the social media app automatically removes them from groups.Whatsapp policy dictates that to maintain security, limit data retention, and protect the privacy of its users, WhatsApp accounts are generally deleted after 120 days of inactivity.
