A lecturer in the Theatre Arts Department of the College of Education Oju in
Benue State, Godwin Abuul, has been allegedly murdered by his wife, name
withheld, in connivance with her siblings over alleged extra marital affairs.
Saturday Vanguard gathered that Abuul who went missing about two weeks ago in
Gboko was killed by his murderers who also dumped his remains in River
According to a family source who craved anonymity, the deceased two weeks ago
went missing in Gboko after returning from Oju where he lectured at the state
owned College of Education.
Narrating the story he said, “Goddy used to lecture at the College of Education
in Oju. He travels weekly from here in Gboko to Oju to lecture after which he
returns to Gboko to spend his weekend with his wife and two children.
“Unfortunately, two weeks ago he returned from Oju and said
he was traveling to Katsina/Ala on a private visit, that was the last we heard
of him.
“His disappearance was reported to the Police who since then have been combing
the entire state in search of his whereabouts.
“Luckily, just two days ago, the cloth he wore the last day anybody saw him was
found with a young man who was immediately arrested by the Police in Gboko.
“Upon interrogation the young man confessed to the Police how the missing
lecturer was allegedly killed by his wife in connivance with her siblings.
“His confession triggered the arrest of several persons including the wife of
the deceased and mother of his two children and all those mentioned in the
saga, by the Police in Gboko, though the matter has been transferred to the
Command Headquarters in Makurdi for further investigations.”
Continuing, the source said, “Already his wife has confessed all she knew about
the matter to the Police. We learned that she alleged that her brothers beat
her husband up because he was involved in extra marital affairs, but not with
the intention to kill him.
“After killing him, they allegedly dumped his body in River Katsina/Ala and
also went ahead to sell his Honda car to an innocent buyer for the sum of
N650,000 and of that sum, the wife of the murdered lecturer was given the sum
of N400, 000 as her share of the proceed.”
“As I speak with you, the Police and local divers are still combing River
Katsina/Ala to locate the remains of the Goddy (the deceased) but we very much
doubt if his remains would be seen because the fishes must have feasted on it.”
When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Assistant
Superintendent, ASP, Moses Yamu who confirmed the incident said he was yet to get
full details of the matter.
Yamu said, “Yes I know of the matter but I’m yet to get the full details of the
matter from the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, because the suspects are yet to
arrive Makurdi. At this moment I cannot confirm that the wife of the deceased
was behind his murder until the details are made available to me.”
