The kidnappers are said to have chased after the lecturer, who tried to flee after one of his Highlander Jeep’s back tires was shot by the criminals.

While making their way to the premises of Aganbi Memorial Baptist Church in Eku, where Professor Idamoyibo fled after abandoning his vehicle, the gunmen reportedly fired several gunshots into the air to scare away passersby.

On Tuesday, April 12, they contacted his wife, Mrs. Rosemary Idamoyibo, and gave her until Friday, April 15, to pay the ransom.

Two more victims were allegedly dragged into the kidnappers’ waiting vehicle, along with the lecturer, before they sped off back to Sapele–Eku road.
The death of Professor Ovaborhene Idamoyibo has thrown the Okpe Nation into mourning.
