The Nigerian Police, Ondo State Command, has confirmed the death of the former Vice- Chancellor (VC) of the Federal University of Technology, Akure ( FUTA), Prof. Albert Ilemobade, who was said to have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen last week.
Mr Isaac Eke, the Commissioner of Police in charge of the state, said that the decomposing body of Ilemobade was found in a store in his Ijapo Estate, Akure residence on Sunday evening.
The former VC was reportedly abducted last Monday along with his gateman and was said to have been taken to an unknown destination, until his body was found on Sunday.
However, it was gathered that the octogenarian’s decomposing body was found after the arrest of two of his domestic staff by security agents in Ogun State, while they trying to sell the Red Toyota RAV4 Jeep stolen from the late Ilemobade’s residence.
Eke, who confirmed that the two suspects have been apprehended by men of the Ogun State police Command, said that they would be transferred to Ondo State on Monday.
