The dead body of a former Vice Chancellor of FUTA, Professor Albert Ilemobade, who was said to have been kidnapped, has been found in his house at Ijapo in Akure, Ondo State capital on Sunday [Jun 28] morning.
According to a family source, Professor Ilemobade’s driver and gateman killed the former University Don in his house and made away with his Toyota SUV.
However, they ran out of luck as Police intercepted the car at Ogun State, which led to the arrest of the suspects and eventual discovery of Professor Ilemobade’s dead body at the store in his house.
The decomposed body of the professor has been deposited at an undisclosed mortuary in the state capital. Professor Ilemobade had been reported kidnapped last Sunday when his whereabouts were unknown.
The Public Relations Officer of Ondo State Police Command, Wole Ogodo, told Channels TV that the Command would brief the press as soon as they get enough relevant information about it.
In the earlier report during the week, which has now been found to be untrue, Professor Ilemobade was said to have been abducted alongside his gateman at his residence. His housemaid reportedly saw the gunmen when they took the former don away.
According to the report, the gunmen, on their arrival at the residence of the former Vice Chancellor, approached the gateman, but before he knew what was happening a gun was reportedly pointed at him and he was asked to lead them to the living room where the former Vice Chancellor was accosted and asked to follow them to their vehicle.
The so-called abductors whisked both the Professor and the gateman away to an unknown destination.
