Asked if his murder has any connection with position as exams officer, the spokesman said, “The University management has allowed the police and other security agencies to conclude their investigation, and certainly they would give a report on what actually happened and why”.

Speaking to Daily Trust, a lecturer in the faculty said the deceased took advantage of the Easter holiday to tidy up some work on his table when the assailants crept in and murdered him.

“He was brutally murdered with knife and hammer, leaving him in the pool of his blood. They also escaped with his car and some other valuables. However, many people are attributing the murder to the position held as the faculty examination officer,” he added.
