Communities in Irele Local Government Area of Ondo State are on edge following the mysterious disappearance of Gideon Akindoyo, a 300-level Computer Engineering student from Al-Hikmah University, Igbaja, Kwara State.

Gideon, who had traveled home, went missing after he reportedly went to his family's farm to harvest cassava. His motorcycle was found abandoned on the farm, raising fears that he may have been kidnapped.

The National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) has called on authorities to urgently locate the 30-year-old student. In a statement released by its senate secretariat and signed by its leader, Henry Okunomo, NANS suggested that Gideon's disappearance could be linked to the ongoing communal conflict between the Irele and Igbobini communities. The student group has urged the leaders of both communities to cooperate in finding Gideon, whether alive or deceased.

According to NANS, Gideon was last seen on Monday, June 11, 2024, when he left for his parents’ farm in Lumeko village, situated between the Igbobini and Ode Irele communities in the Ese-Odo and Irele Local Councils. The group has also appealed to the Governor of Ondo State, Lucky Aiyedatiwa, to take decisive action to resolve the persistent communal strife that may be linked to Gideon’s disappearance.

Gideon's mother, Mrs. Janet Akindoyo, shared that her son had arrived in Irele on Sunday, June 10, and had gone to the farm the next day but never returned home.

Confirming the incident, the Police Public Relations Officer for Ondo State, Funmilayo Odunlami-Omisanya, stated that police operatives have been deployed to search for the missing student.

The tension remains high as the community and authorities continue their efforts to uncover Gideon's whereabouts.
