Elsevier B.V, the academic publishing company, has named two Nigerian professors among the most productive scientists globally.

The company publishes medical and scientific literature at Stanford University in the United States.

Kayode Oyewumi and Musa Yakubu, the professors named, are both from the University of Ilorin (UNILORIN).

Oyewumi is the dean of the faculty of physical sciences while Yakubu is the immediate past director at the central research laboratory at the varsity.

According to NAN, the university confirmed the development in its bulletin issued on Wednesday in Ilorin.
