“The assassins came in, killed him, and then fled without taking anything,” Elizabeth Obioma told Peoples Gazette via phone on Tuesday morning, as reported by NewsReport Nigeria.

Weeping profusely, Mrs. Obioma said her husband 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.

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

Mr. 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 incident came barely a day after Ahmed Gulak, a top politician of the ruling APC, was gunned down in Owerri, raising widespread fears of insecurity.
