A senior lecturer with Auchi Polytechnic in Edo state,Nigeria, Mr Moses Egbape, has been abducted by gunmen at his residence in South Ibie of Etsako West Local Government Area of the state.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that the incident occurred on Saturday as the lecturer was driving into his compound after returning from work.
The Auchi Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Abubakar Mohammed, confirmed the abduction of the lecturer in a telephone interview with NAN.
He, however, said that the abductors were yet to make any demand, and promised that the police would investigate the matter thoroughly.
The Egbepe’s kidnap was the second within one week, after the abduction of a Petroleum Dealer, popularly known as “Sacchis” , who was released after he reportedly paid N2 million ransom.
