POLICE DEBUNK RUMOUR OF ASSASSINATION; SAY NECO REGISTRAR, GODSWILL OBIOMA, DIED OF HEART ATTACK
The Niger State Police Command has debunked the rumour making the rounds that the National Examinations Council (NECO), Registrar, Godswill Obioma was assassinated.
The Command's Spokesperson, Wasiu Abiodun, in a statement made available to us on Tuesday, confirmed that Obioma died after a brief illness, dismissing the reports that he was murdered as fake news.
The statement read, “This story is totally false, untrue and a pure element of fake news circulating in some section of the social media and national dailies that NECO Registrar, Prof. Godswill Obioma, was murdered by unknown gunmen in Minna.
“It is important to state categorically that on May 31, the Registrar/CEO National Examinations Council (NECO), Prof. Godswill Obioma, was rushed to National Hospital, Abuja, by his family members where he was later confirmed dead, after a brief illness.
“Members of the public are hereby urged to disregard the fake news while news reporters are advised to always verify their report before publication to avoid creating unnecessary panic and fear in public domain.”
