It was gathered that the kidnappers killed the driver because he refused to stop when he spotted the dare- devils. The gunmen set Omisore’s car ablaze and took him to an unknown destination.
The Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU OAU chapter, Dr. Caleb Aborisade, who confirmed the incident, said that the kidnappers are asking for a ransom of N70 million from the family of the lecturer.
