Female circumcision: Oyo family decries members’ disappearance

The Olanrewaju family of Aba Ibadan in Iseyin district of Iseyin local government area of Oyo state has lamented the  disappearance of their family members, including Mr Olugbuyi Olanrewaju, his wife, Mrs Mojisola Adeyi and their daughter, Semilore Olanrewaju, since 2011.

In a statement made available to Blueprint in Abuja Wednesday, a member of the family, Chief Durojaiye Olanrewaju, alleged that Mr and Mrs Olugbuyi Olanrewaju disappeared with their daughter after refusing to bring the latter to the village for “a mandatory annual circumcision exercise”. 

He said: “All efforts to bring Semilore to Aba Ibadan for circumcision have proved abortive from 2011 till date. As this year’s event is approaching on June 22nd, we appeal for Semilore to be brought to undergo the circumcision, as required by the family’s tradition, custom and belief”.

He appealed to whoever that has any useful information regarding them to contact Chief Durojaiye Olanrewaju at Olanrewaju’s compound in Aba Ibadan, Oyo state.
