Gunmen suspected to be assassins have killed the Registrar of the National Examinations Council, Professor Godswill Obioma.
Obioma was killed on Monday night when the hoodlums stormed his Minna residence in the Niger State capital.
The deceased’s widow, Mrs Elizabeth Obioma, told newsmen that “the assassins came in and killed him and left without taking anything.”
Efforts to speak with the Niger State Police Command proved abortive as the police spokesperson neither picked nor returned his calls and text messages as of the time of filing this report.
The 67-year-old indigene of Abia State was appointed NECO Registrar in May 2020.
Obioma’s killing occurred a day after the murder of Adamawa-born politician and ex-presidential aide, Ahmed Gulak.
