BREAKING: NECO Registrar Godswill Obioma murdered by unknown gunmen

Unknown gunmen on Monday night invaded the residence of Professor Godswill Obioma, crushing him in what his wife suspected to be an assassination.

“The assassins came in and killed him and left without taking anything,” Elizabeth Obioma told Peoples Gazette 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.

On Tuesday, Godswill Obioma, a prominent Igbo & Registrar of NECO,was killed in Minna. The killers stormed his home, strangled him & left without taking anything. It begins!”

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.

The sad incident occurred barely a day after Ahmed Gulak, a top politician of the ruling APC, was assassinated.

Details shortly…
