A spokesperson for the Niger State Police Command Wasiu Abiodun, in a statement, said contrary to reports of assassination, Obiamo died after a brief illness.
“The attention of Niger State Police Command has been drawn to a publication circulating in some section of social media and national dailies that NECO Registrar Prof. Godswill Obioma was murdered by unknown gunmen in Minna. This story is totally false, untrue and a pure piece of fake news,” the statement read.
Abiodun noted that the families of the late registrar had ‘formally’ announced that he passed to eternal glory after a brief illness at National Hospital Abuja.
NECO Head of Information and Public Relations Azeez Sani also confirmed the death of the registrar, saying the family of the deceased had reported that he died due to an illness.
THE Nigeria Police Force and families of the Registrar of the National Examination Council (NECO) Goodwill Obioma have disputed reports that alleged he was assassinated.
