Professor Godswill Obioma, a registrar of National Examination Council (NECO) has been killed.
He was reportedly strangled to death by gunmen suspected to be assassins in Minna, Niger State.
His wife, Elizabeth Obioma, confirmed the incident on Tuesday morning saying “the assassins came in and killed him and left without taking anything.”
She told an online newspaper, Peoples Gazette that her husband had just returned to Minna from a trip to Abuja when the armed men attacked him. The police is yet to speak on the incident.
Oriental Times understands that Mr Obioma, 67, was appointed head of NECO on May 14, 2020.
