Missing Student Not With Us - Lagos Police
Many have read the story of Olaniyan Yemi, a resident of Osogbo and final year student of Accounting at Osun State University, Okuku Campus.
Olaniyan reportedly came to Lagos to submit documents for his IT at an ICAN office in Lagos and thereafter slept at Ojodu Police Station.
It was also mentioned in the posting that Mr. Olaniyan Yemi's trip to Lagos was his first visit to the city.
The Lagos State Police Command is asking questions as to the authenticity of these claims.
First, they say Olaniyan was never a guest at Ojodu Police Station as alleged and there's no record to show that he was at any Police station in Lagos either as a visitor or a detainee.
“Besides, no Police station in Lagos operates as a guest house. It is not allowed,” Police Public Relations Officer, SP Chike Oti, said.
“Going forward, the Command wishes to advise the concerned family to report a case of missing person to the police so that the matter can be thoroughly investigated.
“For instance, the detectives would want to know which of the ICAN offices in Lagos the missing person went for the submission of his document because there's no ICAN office close to Ojodu Police Station.
“Secondly, it was stated in the write up that the missing student is a first-time visitor to Lagos, the detectives would like to know if arrangement was made for him to contact anybody on arrival and so on.
“Please hurry up and report this matter to the police because time is of essence.”
Please, if you see something, say something.
