Three men armed with AK-47 rifles have abducted a female professor at the Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Igbariam, in Anambra East Local Government Area of Anambra State.

Sources said the university teacher whose name was not disclosed was kidnapped along Enugwu-Agidi-Nawgu Road about 7pm on Wednesday, October 28, 2020.
