O. On Sunday, some unidentified gunmen suspected of being armed robbers assassinated a lecturer at the Benue State Polytechnic, Ugbokolo, named Echobu Adah. According to sources, the lecturer was driving along the Otukpo-Enugu route when he was shot by assailants. When he arrived at the scene, the shooters suspected of being armed robbers were operating on the highway, according to a local who did not want to be identified. “Unbeknownst to him, the lecturer was believed to be returning to his Ugbokolo station around 5:00 p.m. on Sunday when he ran into the robbery scene and was shot dead.” The shooting of the lecturer allegedly sparked a demonstration at Eke junction on the Otukpo-Enugu expressway, which resulted in hours of gridlock. When contacted, DSP Catherine Anene, a spokesman for the State Command, corroborated the report and stated that the victim was shot dead by thieves. “Yes, I just got the news; the dead was in transit when he was confronted by the robbers.” “Unaware that the persons he was approaching were suspected thieves, he got out of his car and moved towards them, but the suspects thought he was daring them and shot him.”“Nothing was taken away from him,” Anene explained.
