Yemi, according to his schoolmate,  Odetola Festus Opeyemi, in a post on Facebook was in Lagos for the first time on Wednesday, February 28, for his Industrial Attachment  when he got stranded and called a colleague that he would be putting up at Ojodu Police Station in Ojodu Local Council Development Area of the state.
Odetola said since then, Yemi has been missing  causing his parents to travel down to Lagos and were told by the police at the Ojodu Station that the missing student  was never at the place.

In the post captioned: “PLS SHARE THIS INFORMATION”, Odetola wrote:

This is Olaniyan Yemi, (resident in Osogbo), a Final Year Student of Accounting at Osun State University, Okuku Campus.

On Tuesday, 28th of February, he traveled to Lagos for his first time to submit some documents at an ICAN Office in Lagos for his IT.

On finishing late, it was already late in the night, so he decided to stay overnight in Lagos, and then travel back to school the next morning

He went to Ojodu Police Station, and explained to the Policemen on duty, that he wanted to sleep over at the Police Station, so that very early in the morning, he could travel back to his school (Uniosun, Okuku Campus), where he came from.

The police men attended to him and requested for his name, his ID card and some other documents to make him identifiable, which he presented.

He afterwards called one of his colleagues in school, to inform him that he would be staying overnight at the Police Station at Ojodu.

Nigerians, that was the last time we heard from Olaniyan Yemi, since two nights ago when he slept at the Police Station.

On getting to the Police Station at Ojodu Berger, the Police men denied having seen anyone, purported to have slept there two nights ago.

Please if you have information on Olaniyan Yemi, kindly call any of these numbers.

In his own post on the incident, another student of the school, Hammed Amuzat, expressed his displeasure at the popular slogan, “Police is your Friend” saying the men of the force are public number one enemy.
He wrote:  “I HATE SEEING(sic) POLICE IS YOUR FRIEND. THEY ARE OUR LEGALIZED ENEMY… If we are not save in the hands of our so called “protectors” again, only God knows where to run to.”
