Gunmen Kill Newly Appointed NECO Registrar, Professor Godswill Obioma
Registrar of the National Examination Council (NECO), Professor Godswill Obioma has been killed by unknown gunmen.
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 narrated 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 was appointed as NECO Registrar about a year ago on May 14, 2020 by President Muhammadu Buhari.
He is from the Southeastern state of Abia.
The incident comes just few hours after Ahmed Gulak, a top politician was murdered in cold blood by gunmen in Owerri, Imo State.
