The worrisome abduction going on in the country especially the South East geo-political zone yesterday visited the Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka as its Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academics, Professor Sam Omenyi, was kidnapped.

Also kidnapped was the university's Director of Academics, Professor Rob Egwuatu.

The two were kidnapped on their way to Owerri Airport in Owerri, Imo State to board a flight to Abuja.

They were said to have been abducted by gunmen believed to be kidnapers who wore police and army uniforms.

Daily Sun attempts to reach the Vice Chancellor, Professor Boniface Egboka, and the Acting Director, Directorate of Information and Public Relations, Mr. Emma Ojukwu, for comments were futile. A don in the university who pleaded anonymity said the incident had put the school in a state of confusion and fear.
