Lecturer allegedly killed in Ebonyi state




Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike Ịkwọ (AE-FUNAI) lecturer, Kyrian Nwoke has been found dead in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State capital.

It was learnt that his body was found on Monday near the popular Rice Mill with bullets wounds

He had gone to pick up some passengers in his car which he was using for taxi services.

He had registered the car with an online car-hailing service so as to make ends meet and take care of his young wife and child.

But on Sunday he went missing after he picked up some passengers in Abakaliki.

His dead body was found the next day with bullet wounds and his car was nowhere to be found.

A colleague who spoke to this reporter blamed his death on the Federal Government’s inability to pay the lecturers.

The source said:” Kyrian Nwoke was a lecturer in the Physiology Department at Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike Nigeria. He was also a Ph.D. student.

As a result of the hardship occasioned by the prolonged ASUU strike and FG withholding of lecturers salaries for over six months, he registered his car under the online taxi service to make ends meet.

“On Sunday, January 10, he was called to go and pick customers at Udemezue street and drop them at a popular eatery known for local delicacies at Ogoja road Abakaliki.

“He never returned from that journey as his lifeless body with a bullet wound was discovered the next day near the Rice Mill along the same Ogoja road and his car missing.

“That is how Kyrian Nwoke’s sunset on that faithful Sunday, leaving his wife a widow and his little daughter fatherless and AE-FUNAI bereft of a hardworking, upcoming Physiology scholar.

“But the Security agents should do the needful and fish out the perpetrators of this dastardly act.

A police spokesman in the state, Loveth Odah could not be reached for comment at the time of this report.
