Ebonyi lecturer found dead with bullet wounds
A lecturer with the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu-Alike Ikwo, Ebonyi State, Mr Kyrian Nwoke, has been murdered by unknown assailants.
Until his death, he taught in the Department of Physiology in AE-FUNAI.
His lifeless body was found along Abakaliki rice mill axis of Ogoja Road, on Monday, with bullet wounds.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the deceased was using his car for a taxi in order to fend for himself and his family following the hardship occasioned by the lingering dispute between the federal government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities which has led to the withholding of salaries of lecturers for months.
Mr Nwoke was said to have gone missing on Sunday after a yet-to-be-identified person called him to come to Udemezue in Abakaliki to pick customers to a popular eatery along Ogoja Road.
A source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “The young man was a lecturer in Physiology Department, Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike-Ikwo, Ebonyi State, Nigeria. Punch
