Dr Reginald Ohiri, a lecturer in the department of Biochemistry at the University of Port Harcourt, who was abductedon Monday, has regained his freedom. The kidnappers released him on Tuesday night when they discovered that he was not their target.
Spokesperson for UNIPORT, Dr. William Wodi, said not only has the lecturer regained his freedom but he has also reported to school. There was however no confirmation on whether ransom was paid. Dr Ohiri just informed him that it was a case of mistaken identity and the kidnappers allowed him to go.
