Residents of Oluseyi Area in Omu-Aran, Kwara, have been thrown into confusion following the alleged disappearance of a 30-year old civil servant, Olaniyi Muyideen, from the area. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) gathered that Muyideen is a staff of the State Universal Basic Education Board (SUBEB) attached to Irepodun Local Government Education Authority, Omu-Aran office, as a computer operator. He was said to have left his house around 7.00 a.m on Wednesday, Sept. 30, leaving his door unlocked with his mobile phone and other items inside his room.

He, however, got scared when his parents had called from Ilorin to inquire about him on Friday. Going to check his room, he found that his door was unlocked. He said that the fears of neighbours were further heightened when a search party, organised to ascertain his whereabouts, later found his slippers, clothes and underwear inside an uncompleted building few metres to the house. Femi said the matter had already been reported to the Divisional Police Command in Omu-Aran.
