Tension is at present palpable in the Olalekan family, following what was described as strange disappearance of their son, Imam Rafiu, a National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, member in Lagos, since December 24, 2018.
The graduate of Mathematics from the University of Technology, Mina, reportedly left his apartment at the Military Barracks Yaba, which he shared with a friend that fateful day without telling anyone where he was going.
His distraught sister, Mrs Kehinde Lawal, who spoke with Vanguard on phone yesterday evening, said the Police was informed yesterday, about her missing brother.
According to her, “his roommate was not around when he went out. He (roommate) told us he went to the Redemption Camp and by the time he came back, he saw my brother’s phone, wallet and clothes in the room and concluded he could have gone out to buy something.
“But he became apprehensive after waiting for two days without seeing him. One of my brother’s friends , who had been calling him on his phone without luck, called this room mate who told him he had not seen my brother for some days.
“My uncle through whom he got the apartment returned from his journey yesterday and has reported the matter to the Police at Lagos Island.
“We are using this opportunity to appeal to whoever has any information on his whereabouts to please reach the nearest police station,” she said in an emotion-laden tone.
