The federal university is fast acquiring the infamy of being a fertile ground for kidnappers who always ‘gun’ for professors.
A university professor of Soil Science, Adamu Zata, was abducted only last month. It was the second kidnapping of Adamu Zata in a year, having suffered the same fate in October 2018 earlier.
