In Lagos: Teenager disappears after leaving home for school clearance



Friends and family members of David Iyoha have been thrown into confusion after he left home for his clearance in school in the Yaba area of Lagos State and has not been seen since November 25, 2019.



It was gathered that David left his parents’ house in the Ago Palace Way area of the state for clearance at the Federal Science and Technical College, Yaba, prior to the issuance of the Senior School Certificate, but had not returned home.

Punch learnt that David neither got to the school nor returned home to his parents.


David’s father, Hamilton, told PUNCH Metro that all efforts by the family and friends to ascertain his whereabouts had proved abortive, adding that the family had resorted to prayers and hope in God that he would return soon.

Hamilton added that before David’s phone went off, he called his friend around 3pm and told him that they should go for the clearance, but the friend declined, stating that the teachers would have left the school and they agreed to go the next day.


The father added that some people told the family that David was seen around the Bode Thomas area of Surulere fiddling with his phone on the day of his disappearance, adding that when a search party was mobilised in the area and its environs, he was nowhere to be found.


The father added, “We keep trusting God to bring him back home as we have resorted to praying that one day, he will come back, but I still repost tweets about his disappearance on the social media, hoping that someone may see him.”

Punch correspondent gathered that the matter was reported at the Ago Palace Way Police Station.


Confirming the incident, the state Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, stated that efforts were being made to trace the teenager’s whereabouts.

“We got the report of a missing person and we have declared him missing and commenced an investigation. Efforts are being made to locate his whereabouts,” he said. Punch
