A Nigerian university professor who was kidnapped not long ago has regained his freedom.
He is actually a senior lecturer at the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Edo State who is identified as Professor Osadolor Odia.
He is a Professor of Engineering and former Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and he was abducted while on his way to his farm at Eboro area of Ekpoma, Esan West Local Government Area of the state and the incident reportedly occurred on April 29.
After he was abducted, the abductors contacted the family and demanded a ransom of N18 million, and his release was confirmed by the wife of the Professor, Dr. Amraibure.
According to her, her husband was released by his kidnappers on Saturday, May 1, adding that he had since reunited with his family.

“I am happy to confirm to you that my husband has been released by the kidnappers. He received treatment for injuries sustained and he has since been discharged from the hospital and rejoined the family,” the elated wife disclosed.
Dr Odia, however, refused to disclose if any ransom was paid to secure the release of her husband.
“I can’t tell you that. All I can say is that he is hail and hearty.”
