Abductors of Ondo university lecturer demand N10m ransom

Abductors of a lecturer with Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko (AAUA), Ondo State, Mayowa David Adinlewa, have demanded N10m ransom from his family to secure his release.

Adinlewa was kidnapped at the weekend along the Akure-Ikere road while going to visit his family at Ikere in Ekiti State.

The kidnappers have contacted his family on Sunday and demanded a ransom of N10 million to secure his release.

Daily Trust gathered that, in an audio conversation, Adinlewa told his wife that they were in the bush and that they had trekked for hours without eating and drinking.

He added that his legs were already swollen due to the long walk and that his phone would soon be taken from him.

When the wife asked for their location, the phone went dead.

The elder brother of the victim, Toyin, confirmed that his brother was kidnapped and that a N10million ransom had been demanded.

The head of the information and protocol unit of AAUA, Mr Victor Akinpelumi, said the incident is still sketchy at the time of filing this report.

Also contacted, the spokesperson of the Ondo State Police Command, Mrs Funmilayo Odunlami, confirmed the story.

According to her, the report they first got was that of an abandoned vehicle but the family later reported to the police that the kidnappers had contacted them.

She said the anti-kidnapping department was already on the matter, adding that they were combing the bush to ensure he is rescued unhurt.
