Prof. Godwin Emezue, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Administration) of Abia State University, who was abducted by gunmen has regained freedom after 11 days in captivity.

Recall that the State Police Command had confirmed that the DVC was abducted over two weeks ago in a filling station in Umuahia, the state capital.

According to PUNCH, the professor was released on Tuesday night by his abductors and is currently receiving medical attention in an undisclosed hospital due to torture he received while in the kidnappers’ custody.

A source close to the professor’s family disclosed that the kidnappers had earlier demanded a ransom of N35 million before the release.

The source added, “The kidnappers released footage of how they tortured the professor and threatened to kill him if the family failed to pay N20 million before the end of Saturday last week.”
