JUST IN: NECO Registrar Allegedly Murdered by Unknown Gunmen
Registrar of the National Examination Council (NECO), Professor Godswill Obioma has been assassinated by unknown gunmen at his residence in Minna, Niger State on Monday night.
It was gathered that the gunmen stormed his residence in Minna, Niger State on Monday night, killed the NECO boss, and left without taking any item.
Confirming the incidence to Peoples Gazette via a telephone call on Tuesday morning, his wife Elizabeth Obioma said “the assassins came in and killed him and left without taking anything,”
She explained that her husband had just returned to Minna from a trip to Abuja when the armed men, lurking in his compound, descended on him and strangled him.
The 67-year-old Obioma who hails from Abia state was appointed as NECO Registrar about a year ago on May 14, 2020 by President Muhammadu Buhari.
This incident comes less than 48 hours after Ahmed Gulak, a top politician was murdered in cold blood by gunmen in Owerri, Imo State.
