There was palpable fear and tension in Ilode, Ile-Ife community area of Osun State, when a 300-level Chemistry student at Adeyemi College of Education, Ondo State, affiliated to the Obafemi Awolowo University, identified as Azeez Akintola, was declared missing.

The family members of the 19-year-old student are in distress since he went missing about three weeks ago.

It was learnt that the teenager, who lived with his parents at Ilode, Ile-Ife, Osun State, had strolled out around 6pm on October 25 but did not return home.

His father, Kolawole Akintola, who spoke to PUNCH metro on the telephone, said Azeez had told him that he was going somewhere within the neighbourhood.

He said the family became apprehensive when he did not return home several hours later.

In Kolawole's statement, “He works with a man as a PoS agent at Sabo. He came back from work that day and around 6pm, he left home again. He told me he would come back soon. When I asked him where he was going, he said he just wanted to see someone within the vicinity. He was not specific. We waited till night but didn’t see him.

“We called his boss to find out if he returned to the shop but he told us he didn’t see him. The following day, we started searching around for him. All his friends we know said they didn’t see him or hear from him.”

The father said a week before his son went missing, robbers had attacked the family and carted phones, including Azeez’s phone.

He added, “That was why there was no phone with him. No one has phoned in to inform us about his whereabouts. He is running a degree programme at the Adeyemi College of Education in affiliation to OAU. He is a 300-level Chemistry student. We reported the case at Agaun Police Station and the police said have radioed all the stations across the state.”
