Family sources said the missing septuagenarian is a traditionalist and a devotee of the Agemo deity.
“Baba (Fakoya) does not leave home anyhow. He only goes to his farm in Iperu and doesn’t like attending parties or social gathering at all. We have launched a search party for him but our effort has not yielded any fruit. We have also taken his photograph to some police stations in Sagamu Local Government, all to no avail, said a source. It was gathered that the family had also sought the help of men of local vigilance group in Sagamu, in their quest to find their missing patriarch.
The group, it was gathered, spread its searchlight on Pa Fakoya’s whereabouts to Ijebu and Ibadan, but their intervention has not produced any positive result to date. For information on the whereabouts of Pa Fakoya, his distraught family can be reached on 08036971105.
