Professor Godswill Obioma, Registrar of National Examination Council (NECO), has been killed in at his residence.
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.
“The assassins came in and killed him and left without taking anything,” Elizabeth Obioma, wife of the victim told Peoples Gazette by telephone on Tuesday morning.
She recounted 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 is from the Abia state was appointed as NECO Registrar about a year ago on May 14, 2020 by President Muhammadu Buhari.
