According to unsubstantiated reports, his assailants attacked Professor Godswill Obioma’s home on Monday night, strangling him in what his wife felt was an assassination.

 

On Tuesday morning, his wife, Elizabeth Obioma, told newsmen over the phone that the alleged assassins stole nothing after killing him.

 

“The assassins came in, killed him, and fled without taking anything,” she added.

 

Mrs Obioma, who was sobbing heavily, claimed her husband had just returned to Minna from a trip to Abuja when armed men lurking in his complex attacked him and strangled him.

 

A police spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for information on the situation.

 

Mr. Obioma has been battling attempts to oust him from his position as the head of NECO, the Nigerian government’s leading examination authority.

 

Mr. Obioma, 67, was named head of NECO on May 14, 2020, just over a year ago. He was from Abia, in the Igbo-dominated South-East area of Nigeria.
