Police confirm killing of varsity professor, abduction of two in Ogun

The Police Command in Ogun has confirmed the killing of a lecturer with Babcock University, Mr Yinka Olowojobi, by gunmen and the abduction of two others at an event centre in the Iperu area of Ogun.

SP Omolola Odutola, the Spokesperson for the command, said in a statement in Abeokuta on Monday that the incident occurred on Friday.

Odutola said the manager of a car stand, simply known as Dare, and a yet-to-be-identified person were those abducted by the gunmen.

“A suspicious coincidence led the police to arrest one Awada Ishaya from Plateau, who was employed as a guard at the event centre two weeks ago for interrogation.

“The lecturer was taken to Babcock University Teaching Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

“Efforts are underway to apprehend the culprits and rescue the kidnapped victims. Further updates will be provided as the situation develops,” the command’s Spokesperson said.
