The VC was snatched at gunpoint in front of the university gate on Wednesday.

Three policemen guarding the university gate engaged the abductors who overpowered them and whisked Onyeji off, after forcing him out of his car into theirs. They drove off.

Sources said the abductors had demanded N200 million ransom from Onyeji’s family, but the police would not confirm this yesterday.

They, however, confirmed that the vehicle used by the kidnappers to take Onyeji away had been recovered in Awka, Anambra State.

Enugu police spokesman Ebere Amaraizu said they were on top of the situation.
