Yenagoa - The Police Command in Bayelsa on Sunday said it was collaborating with its Delta counterpart to rescue, Apelebiri Walabo, abducted by unknown gunmen.
Walabo, 57, is the Registrar, Federal Polytechnic, Ekeowe, Southern Ijaw Council Area of the state.
The Commissioner of Police, Hilary Opara, told newsmen in Yenagoa that the polytechnic’s Acting Rector, Emilian Brisbina, reported the alleged abduction to the state command.
"The command has reached out to the Delta command for collaboration on the alleged abduction of the registrar and possible ways to ensure his release," Opara said.
NAN reports that the registrar was abducted by seven gunmen last week on Asaba-Agbor expressway in Delta, while returning from Abuja to an unknown destination.
The abduction came few days after the Economic and Financial Crime Commission (EFCC) summoned the former Rector, Dr Ineyi Ekpebu, and four others, for alleged diversion of one billion naira.
