Information Reaching us at OWL Media that the abducted Deputy Vice-Chancellor of the Tai Solarin University of Education [TASUED], Ijebu-Ode, Olusoga Olusanya, has regained his freedom.The Ogun State Police Command confirmed
Mr. Olusanya’s release late Tuesday night,
adding that the deputy vice chancellor has
since been re-united with his family.

Mr. Olusanya was returning from the
Federal University of Agriculture Abeokuta
on Monday evening, where he had gone on
official assignment, when he was abducted
by gunmen.

He had served as external invigilator at the
ongoing postgraduate examination at the
Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta,
and was on his way back to his campus
when he was seized by his abductors along
the Odogbolu-Ijebu- Ode-Ore- Benin
expressway.

Mr. Olusanya was initially abducted
alongside his driver who was later dropped
by the roadside at Odogbolu.

However, the spokesperson for the Ogun
Police Command, Muyiwa Adejobi,
confirmed the release of the university
teacher in a text message to our reporter.

He said, “Re-kidnapping at Odogbolu,please
be informed that Prof Olusanya the Deputy
Vice Chancellor Tasued has been released
by his captors and he has been re united
with his family.” Mr. Adejobi did not provide details of how Mr. Olusanya was freed or rescued.

TASUED’s Vice Chancellor, Oluyemisi
Obilade, had on Tuesday called for an
unconditional release of his deputy.
Speaking with PREMIUM TIMES on Mr.
Obilade said, “All I want is the unconditional
release of my DVC.”

The university had also planned a prayer
session to seek divine intervention for the
release of the abducted lecturer just as the
Chairman of the Academic Staff Union of
Universities [ASUU] in the university,
Akinsola Akinsanya, decried the rampant
cases of abduction in the country.

Mr. Akinsaya noted that the situation is
indicative of the deplorable state of security
in the country and called for urgent
intervention by the relevant agencies of the
government.
