Dr Nnamdi Ogueche, a senior lecturer at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka has been killed by suspected Fulani herdsmen in Enugu State.

He was killed along Ezeagu- Umulokpa Uzo-uwani road in the State.

Shortly before his death, Ogueche was said to have presided over a peace meeting between his kinsmen of Adada town Uzo-Uwani and Fulani herdsmen.

 

It was further gathered that the slain University don was the Administrative Secretary of Uzo- Uwani LGA, Enugu State.

He was aged 40 and was married with three children, two girls and a boy.

 

Suleiman Balarabe, the Enugu State Commissioner of Police confirmed this report while briefing journalists at the Headquarters of the State Police Command on Thursday.

Balarabe described the incident as unfortunate, saying investigation was ongoing.

He added that the police was yet to ascertain if Fulani herdsmen carried out the heinous killing.

It could be recalled that Fulani herdsmen massacred 11 persons at Nimbo, Uzo-uwani LGA, Enugu State in May 2016.

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi who wept bitterly at the scene had instituted a Judicial Panel of Inquiry to look into the immediate and remote causes of the incident and make recommendations to forestall future occurrence.

The commission had submitted its report since 2017 but the state government white paper has not been released till date.
