Police nab abductor of OAU professor
One of the abductors of an orthopedics surgeon at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Professor Olayinka Adegbehingbe, has been nabbed by the police in Osun state.
It would be recalled that Professor Adegbehingne was returning to Ile-Ife from Lagos, when he was abducted by suspected Fulani herdsmen and was released after his family paid N5.45m ransom.
The state commissioner of police, Abidoun Ige, who paraded the suspect, Usman Ladan, before newsmen at the state command headquarters yesterday, however, said Professor Adegbehingbe was the one who identified the suspect as one of his abductors.
The police chief added that one of the alleged abductors was arrested while he was wandering aimlessly in Ikire. Two others were arrested in the Iwo area for other crimes.
The suspects are Samaila Gede from Katsina State; Kemu Rejuli from Niger Republic; and Jubril Momhammed from Katsina State, who were said to have been apprehended with assorted charms.
The commissioner added that the suspects will be charged to court as soon as investigations have been concluded.
