The state Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Sulaiman Nguroje, said the professor was seized as he was returning home from office between 8 and 9 pm on Tuesday.
“Nobody knew until after an hour or two when his wife called him and was told by his abductors.
“The command has ordered the Operation Farauta/Anti-kidnap unit to relocate to Girei and ensure the professor is rescued and the suspects apprehended.”
