The assailants, it was learnt, shot one of the lecturers and abducted two, while one of the lecturers escaped unhurt.
A staff of Osogbo local government, identified as Kolawole, whose vehicle was also attacked, told our correspondent that the abductors attacked commuters on the road around 4.30pm.
He said, “The kidnappers were about five in number and spoke in Yoruba. They stopped a vehicle in front of our own vehicle. The men dressed in black and were armed with sophisticated weapons.
“The driver of the vehicle in front of us attempted to run and the vehicle was shot at. We all fled into the bush. The men spoke in fluent Yoruba language.”
When contacted, spokesperson of Osun Police Command, Folasade Odoro, confirmed to The Punch that two persons were abducted.
“But the information is still sketchy for now. Our men are still in the bush. We are on the trail of their abductors.”
Repeated calls to the mobile number of the Registrar of the institution, Dr. Kayode Ogunleye, were not answered. Also, text message to his line was not responded to as of the time of filing this report.
