“The kidnap victim, a professor with the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Anambra State, who left for Awka after having a Senate meeting with her collegues in the school, unfortunately her movement was cut short by the activities of the kidnappers.

“This is the second time a lecturer would fall victim to the notorious kidnappers on the same spot.
