YABATECH Undergraduate Goes Missing
32-year-old Emmanuel Kolade, an undergraduate of the Yaba College of Technology, has reportedly gone missing. The student of Computer Engineering, left his parents’ home on Awolumate Street, Ajuwon, Ogun State, on November 11 and his whereabouts had remained unknown since then.
He was a part-time student of YABATECH and also worked in Computer Village, Ikeja, where he repaired phones for a fee. His father, Mr. Adeniyi Kolade, explained that his fifth child left for his workplace on the day, adding that he did not return home.
He said, “On November 11, he told me that he was going to his workplace in Ikeja, from where he would go to school, when his mother was about travelling that morning, he called her back and gave her N500 to augment her fare.
“However, when it was 7.30pm and we didn’t hear from him, we became worried. This was because he never stayed out late. We called his telephone lines, but they were switched off. We checked at his place of work and his colleagues said he didn’t resume for work that morning. The school also said they did not see him. All our efforts have proved abortive.”
Adeniyi said the matter had been reported at the Ajuwon Police Station, Ogun State, and the Area F Police Command, Lagos State, among other stations.
