How OAU lecturer was kidnapped


Fresh facts have emerged on how a lecturer in the Environmental Design Department of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Dr. Femi Omisore, was kidnapped on Saturday in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital.

It was gathered that unknown gunmen shot at the fuel tank of the lecturer’s car when his driver attempted to flee.

The kidnappers were said to have pursued the lecturer, who was on his way to Oye-Ekiti, until they eventually caught up with him and shot his driver.

According to a source, the lecturer’s car caught fire.

The source added: “A car was trailing him (the lecturer) and his driver tried to escape but he was caught. The driver tried so much to avoid being overtaken by the gun men but it is painful that he did not succeed. They eventually killed him.”

The chairman of the OAU chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, Dr. Caleb Aborisade, said: “It is true. He was taken away and his driver was killed. His car was also burnt.”
