The ASUU Chairman said, “I can confirm to you that our abducted colleague has been released and we thank God for regaining his freedom.

“But we are not happy over what is happening because this is the 4th time our colleague was abducted within this year.

“There have been security meetings and yet these abductions kept on happening. Early this year, one staff was kidnapped right inside the University quarters and those who are resident outside the quarters are not safe either. How do you explain this kind of situation?”

He implored the authorities to find a solution to the problem and stop the further abduction of the University lecturers.
