OAU LECTURER KIDNAPPED, DRIVER KILLED




It was another traumatic episode for the Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile-Ife after a lecturer, Dr. Femi Omisore was kidnapped while on his way to a funeral at Oye Ekiti in Ekiti State.
We gathered that Omisore, a lecturer at the Department of Environmental Design Management of OAU, was abducted in Ado Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, on his way to attend the ceremony.
His captors, who were said to be armed with guns, were said to have trailed him for a while and his driver tried all he could to avoid being overtaken by the hoodlums.
On catching up with him, the hoodlums were said to have killed the driver out of anger and forced Omisore out of his car before he was taken away to an unknown place.
The gunmen, it was farther gathered, fired several shots at the petrol tank of the lecturer’s car and ensured that the car caught fire before they left the scene.
The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, OAU chapter, Dr. Caleb Aborisade, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on the telephone.
