NECO Registrar Godswill Obioma assassinated by unknown gunmen

By Lubem Gena

Unknownn gunmen on Monday night invaded the residence of Professor Godswill Obioma and strangled him to death.

How wife, Elizabeth said she is suspecting the death to be an assassination.

“The assassins came in and killed him and left without taking anything,” Elizabeth Obioma reportedly told a journalist by telephone on Tuesday morning.

Crying copiously, Mrs Obioma said her husband had just returned to Minna from a trip to Abuja when the armed men, prowling in his compound, descended on him and strangled him.

News Headquarter gathers that Mr Obioma has been facing challenges to remove him from office as the head of NECO, a prominent examination body run by the Nigerian government.

Obioma, 67, was appointed head of NECO barely a year ago on May 14, 2020. He hailed from Abia in Nigeria’s Igbo-dominated South-East region.
