Massive jubilation at AAU as Professor Odia regains freedom from Gunmen.

A Professor of Engineering and former Head of the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma, Prof. Osadolor Odia, who was abducted by gunmen last week Thursday has been set free.

The wife of the Professor, Dr Amraibure, confirmed to press men on Sunday that her husband has been released by his abductors on Saturday and that he has since reunite with his family.

Her wife said, “I am happy to confirm to you that my husband has been released by the kidnappers. He received treatment for injuries sustained and he has since been discharged from the hospital and reunite with the family.”

When asked what was paid as ransom, she said, “I can’t tell you that. All I can say is that he is hail and hearty.”

AAU was also in a jubilation mood when the news of his freedom got to the University’s campus.

A source close to the Edo State Police Command also confirmed the professor’s release, saying “I also heard that he has been free and that the family held a Thanksgiving service.”

Professor Odia was said to be on his way to his farm at Egoro, Ekpoma, on Thursday morning when the incident occurred.
