Deputy Vice Chancellor Kidnapped
Ogun State, Prof. Olusoga Olusanya, has been kidnapped.
Prof. Olusanya was said to be on his way from the Federal
University of Agriculture, Abeokuta where he had gone on an official
assignment when he was abducted by unknown gunmen.
He was said to have visited FUNAB where he served as an
external invigilator at the ongoing postgraduate examination and was
returning late Monday evening before he was waylaid at the bad portion of
the Odogbolu and Ososa, along the Ijebu Ode-Ore-Benin expressway when he
was coming from Abeokuta.
The news of the abduction of the DVC forced the University
Senate to abruptly postpone the emergency University Senate meeting which
was scheduled for Tuesday. Confirming the incident, the Ogun State Police
Public Relations Officer, Mr. Muyiwa Adejobi, said that investigations
have begun on the matter.
As at the time of filing this report, the kidnappers are yet to contact
the family members for ransom.
