Oluwatobi Odunayo got missing after going on an errand for his father.


The disappearance of a 16-year-old boy identified as Oluwatobi Odunayo, has led to commotion in his home, as his parents trade blame with each other.

Oluwatobi’s father, Olagoke Odunayo, who is a printer said his ex-wife, Taiwo, who is the boy's mother, was hiding him, while she also accused Olagoke of causing the boy to flee from home due to his maltreatment.

According to Punch, Oluwatobi’s parents have been separated for four years, over a disagreement concerning the relocation of the family.

The boy’s father lamented that all the efforts employed in finding the boy have yielded no positive result.

“I brought him to Lagos last year after he finished his secondary school in Ado-Ekiti. I warned him against keeping company with the wrong people.”

“I tried my best to provide him with all he needed pending when he would get admission into the university.”

“On March 26, around 8.30am, we were about preparing breakfast when his siblings said they needed appetisers. I asked him to get them some doughnuts and I gave him N500.”

The spokesperson for the Lagos State Police, SP Dolapo Badmos, confirmed the incidence and mentioned that investigations have began into the matter.
