Lecturer Shot Dead Hours After Dedicating His New Car


Professor Gabriel Okayi, a lecturer at Federal University of Agriculture (FUAM), Makurdi, Benue State was killed by unidentified gunmen in the early hours of Monday, January 9th, barely 24 hours after he dedicated his new car.

The terrible incident happened at the deceased’s residence located in Asase community within North Bank area of Makurdi at about 3:00am.

Okayi, a Professor of Aquatic Pollution in the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture, dedicated a new car he bought at the Foundation Faith Church in North Bank, Makurdi, on Sunday, January 8th.

State commissioner of Police Bashir Makama, who confirmed the incident, said the deceased woke up from sleep and observed that his dogs were not let loose as usually done at night, so he stepped out of the house to release the dogs, but some gunmen lurking inside his compound shot him in the back as he turned to enter his house, killing him instantly.

This is really sad. May his soul rest in peace.
