Ogun: Gunmen Kill Babcock University Professor, Abduct Two Others

Gunmen suspected to be kidnappers have killed Yinka Olomojobi, a professor of law at Babcock University, Ilishan Remo, Ogun State.

The gunmen abducted two other people in the Iperu area of the state.

It was learnt that the don was shot dead on Friday at Ajadeh Event Centre on Sagamu Road, in the Iperu area of the state for allegedly refusing to be taken away by the suspected kidnappers at about 9:20 pm.

However, the spokesperson of the Ogun State Police Command, Omolola Odutola, in a statement said one person had been arrested in connection with the incident.

She disclosed that the police had arrested one Awada Ishaya of Plateau State who was employed two weeks earlier by the event centre management for further interrogation.

She said, “A two-week-old security man was arrested based on reasonable suspicion as police commence discreet investigation.

“A report from the Iperu Division indicates that a kidnapping and murder incident occurred on the 19th of April, 2024, at about 9:20 pm.

“A suspicious coincidence led the police to arrest one Awada Ishaya of Plateau state who was employed two weeks ago when the event centre was launched as a security man for further interrogation.

The lecturer was taken to Babcock University Teaching Hospital where he was pronounced dead.”

“Efforts are underway to apprehend the culprits and rescue the kidnapped victims. Further updates will be provided as the situation develops,” she added.
