*SoHvaD vIghro' noblu' neHlu' *or***SoHvaD vIghro' nob vay' neH vay'* 
are both correct, as are various other combinations of *-lu'* and 
*vay'.* Also valid is using the prefix trick for the latter sentence: 
*vIghro' Dunob vay' neH vay'.*

Of course, *-lu'* means more than /someone;/ it means /an entity I'm not 
going to specify./

One might also question whether the two *vay'* in the second sentence 
are the same *vay'.* You could clarify this with something like *vIghro' 
Dunob vay' neH vay'vam.*
