“If he left on his own, he should have called me. Everybody in this town, I’m gonna tell you, they say, ‘Angela, he’s f–king walked out because he’s got no reason to stay here.’ I don’t want to believe that,” she told 90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates, adding that her husband might have family in Idaho.

Angela – who married the Nigeria native in 2020 – then wondered if Michael was using her as a way to get to America and planned to leave her as soon as he settled in her rural Georgia town. “I’m telling you now. I’m not gonna let you f–king come here if you didn’t love me,” she said.

That’s all I can tell you.”

When Was ’90 Day Fiance’ Star Michael Ilesanmi Found?

John revealed that Michael had been found safe during a YouTube Live on February 26, 2024.

“Right after the [original] live ended, Angela got a phone call from the police here stating that they were contacted by Michael. They verified it with him,” John explained. “He did have a burner phone or another phone that nobody knew about. And on that phone he had pictures of his passport that he left. They verified his ID.”

John continued, “He told the police that he was in fear of his life and Michael didn’t want Angela knowing his location.”

On March 1, 2024, Michael broke his silence for the first time amid the ordeal. His video message came one week after he went missing. In a video shared to Instagram blogger Kiki and Kibbitz, Michael didn’t address his disappearance. “Hello, guys, this is Michael,” he said. “I just want to quickly make this video to inform the public that I’m not on any social media platform right now. I mean, at this moment. When the time comes, I’ll make it official. OK, thank you. And God bless you.”
