Gunmen kidnap ex-vice Chancellor in Ondo

A former Vice-Chancellor of the African University in Bayelsa State, Professor Valentine Aleto, has been abducted by gunmen along Elegbeka/Ipele Road in Ose Local Government Area of Ondo State.

Professor Aleto also was said to be travelling from Yenagoa in his personal vehicle along the road at about 6:45 am on Thursday.

The suspected kidnappers reportedly appeared on the road and forced him into a shop before he was taken into the bush.


It was gathered that the abductors have demanded N20 million as ransom from the victim’s family to release him.

Sources said by the time the police got the information about the incident, the assailants had escaped with the professor.

However, the security operatives have recovered the former vice chancellor’s vehicle to the Police Station in Ifon.
