silent about
The University regents, meeting
behind closed doors yesterday to
discuss a prospective legal case, said
their session was productive but would
not reveal the topic of their discussion.
The two hour meeting was convened
publicly about 20 minutes past noon.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Detroit)
began it by making a motion to close
the meeting in order to discuss a legal
opinion. The motion was approved
unanimously with no discussion.
The regents', special meeting came
less than a week before their regular
monthly meeting at which they are ex-
pected to approve next year's tuition
Regent James Waters (D-Muskegon)
said in a telephone conversation Thur-
sday that it's unusual to have a special
meeting a week before, the regular
meeting. But Regent Paul Brown (D-
Petoskey) insisted that the meeting had
no special significance.
Roderick Daane, general counsel of
the University, said that he wrote an
opinion for the special session but
would not say what the opinion was
"I make ita policy not to comment on
closed meetings," said Regent Deane
Baker (R-Ann Arbor).

Four to be charged in kidnapping of

From AP and UPI
LONDON - Two Israeli mercenaries and two
Nigerians yesterday faced charges of kidnapping in
the bizarre abduction of an exiled Nigerian Cabinet
minister found drugged and unconscious in a ship-
ping crate Thursday, police sources said.
Scotland Yard was invetigating whether the abdu-
ction was ordered by the Nigerian regime or was a
free-lance operation by mercenaries hoping to collect

a reward for returning the former minister, Umaru
Dikko, to face trial on corruption charges.
NIGERIA HAS denied it had a role in the incident,
despite the fact that the crate containing Dikko was
addressed to the External Affairs Ministry in Lagos
and sent by the Nigerian High Commission, or em-
bassy, in London.
Also, two London newspapers said in their Sunday
editions that two Israelis were involved and they
might be linked to the Mossad, Israel's intelligence

Scotland Yard refused to confirm the identities of
the four men or say if they would be charged. Police
originally detained 17 people, but eight were released
Friday and five more yesterday.
Dikko, one of Nigeria's most powerful officials until
a military coup overthrew the civilian government
six months ago, was recuperating but still too
"drowsy" to be questioned, authorities said.
