Godswill Obioma, the registrar of National Examination Council (NECO) was not assassinated as earlier reported, says his son.

An online publication TODAY POLITICS quoted had claim the deceased was assassinated and was attributed to the wife of the late professor of research.

But notifying Mustapha Abdul, the Director Human Resource Management at the examination body, of his father’s demise, Godswill Obioma II said his father died after a brief illness.

“Dear Sir, this is to formally inform you that my father Prof. Godswill Obioma, the Registrar/Chief Executive of NECO passed to eternal glory yesterday 31/5/2021 after a brief illness,” he wrote in a statement. “We request that you kindly notify the Board, Management and the entire staff of the Council of this development. We shall keep you duly informed.”
