According to an eyewitness, the lecturer was jogging from the University staff quarters to the Abraham Ordia stadium located within campus when he was accosted by gunmen.
A lecturer in the Department of Zoology at the University of Calabar (UNICAL) has been kidnapped on Friday, March 10, in the morning while jogging within the school premises.
The gunmen shot sporadically into the air to scare people before whisking the lecturer away quickly.
“I suspected the kidnappers were trailing the lecturer as he was jogging. They must have gagged him and carried him into the bush around the area before taking him away. This is just my thinking as I did not see the gunmen with any vehicle,” the eyewitness said.
The state Police Public Relations Officer, Irene Ugbo, confirmed the incident noting that the police will track the abductors and ensure the lecturer’s release from captivity.
