The Niger state police command has disclosed that the registrar of the National Examinations Council (NECO), Godswill Obioma was not killed by gunmen.

This disclosure was contained in a statement issued on Tuesday by the police public relations officer in the state, Wasiu Abiodun.

Recall that Godswill Obioma who was appointed registrar of the examination body in May 2020 died on Monday in Abuja.

There are conflicting reports on how he died. While some reports say he was assassinated, others say he died after a brief illness.

The police, however, confirmed that Obioma died after a brief illness, dismissing the reports that he was murdered as fake news.

“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,” the police said.

“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.”

The Macias children, who are being cared for by Daniel’s parents, have not quite grasped what has happened to their mother and father, Serey said. After Daniel died on Sept. 9, a counselor explained to the two eldest children, 7 and 5, that both of their parents were gone, Serey said. While the oldest child — Daniel and Davy’s only son — understood the situation, his younger sister is “still looking for mommy,” Serey said. All of the children, Serey has heard from the grandparents, “spend a lot of time at night looking for mom and dad.”
