BREAKING: NECO Registrar, Godswill Obioma, killed

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.

Niger State in Nigeria’s North-Central has been a hotbed of killings and kidnappings of late as rampaging bandits terrorise the people of the state.

Just on Sunday, about 200 students of an Islamiyya school located at Tegina in the Rafi Local Government Area of Niger State were abducted.

One person was said to have been shot dead while another was critically injured after the gunmen carried out the kidnap operation on Sunday afternoon.
