Students Protest Missing Colleague in Ondo State

Hundreds of students from various higher institutions of learning marched through the streets of Ode Irele, the headquarters of Irele Local Government Area, demanding answers about the disappearance of Gideon Akindoye.

The protest, organized by the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS), took place on Monday. Gideon Akindoye, a 300-level Computer Engineering student at Al-Hilmah University in Kwara State, went missing on June 11, 2024. He had traveled home to meet his parents and later ventured to his father’s farm between Igbobini and Ode Irele Communities.

However, he never returned, raising suspicions of a possible kidnapping. During the demonstration, students carried placards with inscriptions such as “Bring back Gideon dead or alive” and “Mr. Governor, we need your help.” Comrade Henry Olukunomo, the Senate President of NANS, urged the state governor, Mr. Lucky Aiyedatiwa, and security agencies to intervene and locate the missing student. Gideon’s mother, Mrs. Janet Akindoye, expressed her distress, saying that her son had not returned since going to the farm.

The state police confirmed the incident and initiated a search operation in the forest. The community remains anxious, hoping for Gideon’s safe return.
