A lecturer with the Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike Ikwo (AE-FUNAI), Ebonyi State, Mr. Kyrian Nwoke, has been found dead in Abakaliki. His body was discovered on Monday near the popular Rice Mill with bullet wounds.
Nwoke had gone to pick up some passengers in his car which he was using as a cab following the strike embarked on by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), which left him without salaries. He had registered the car with an online car-hailing service to take care of his young wife and child. But on Sunday he went missing after he picked up some passengers in Abakaliki. His body was found the next day with bullet wounds while his car was missing.
Nwoke’s murder was posted on social media platforms, including Facebook. One of the lecturers at the AEFUNAI conformed Nwoke’s murder. He also blamed Nwoke’s death on the federal government’s inability to pay the lecturers. (NewTelegraph)
