NECO Registrar Godswill Obioma assassinated

Unknown gunmen on Monday night reportedly stormed the residence of Professor Godswill Obioma, strangling 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, June 1, 2021.

Weeping profusely, Mrs Obioma said the NECO Registrar Godswill Obioma had just returned to Minna from a trip to Abuja when the armed men, lurking in his compound, descended on him and strangled him.

A police spokesman did not immediately return a request seeking comments about the development, a report by Peoples Gazette said.

NECO Registrar Godswill Obioma has been facing attempts to remove him from office as the head of NECO, a prominent examination body run by the Nigerian government.

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

The murder of NECO Registrar Godswill Obioma came barely a day after Ahmed Gulak, a top politician of the ruling APC, was gunned down in Owerri, raising widespread fears of insecurity.
