Kidnappers have abducted a Former Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Academics) of the University of Ibadan, Professor Adigun Agbaje.

Agbaje, who is said to be currently on sabbatical at Olabisi Onabanjo University (OOU), was on his way to Ibadan from Lagos.

He was reportedly blocked by the kidnappers very close to the Sat Guru Maharaji Garden at about 6 pm on Friday.

According to the information gathered from a UI source by FIJ, the kidnappers eliminated some policemen around the scene before making away with the professor.

The abductors have since contacted the Agbaje family to demand a N50million ransom.

Agbaje, a professor of Political Science, was the Deputy Vice-Chancellor in charge of academic matters between 2006 and 2010 at the University of Ibadan.

He earned his BSc (Honours) degree in Political Science at the same university with First Class Division in 1979 after which he obtained his M.Sc degree in Mass Communications with distinctions from the University of Lagos in 1981.
