More facts have emerged on how a popular Professor and senior lecturer with the Nigeria’s Federal University of Agriculture (FUAM) Makurdi, Prof. Karl Kwaghger, was assassinated just six days after his birthday.
Prof. Kwaghger, an Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering, was reportedly killed at the popular Joseph Sarwuan Tarka Foundation in Makurdi, the state capital.
“The murderers of the university don, after fulfilling their mission, abandoned his lifeless body and left,” head, Media and Public Relations in the University, Mrs. Rosemary Waku, said, as she confirmed the brutal murder of the varsity don.
Also, the state Police Command’s Public Relations Officer, DSP Catherine Sewuese Anene, confirmed the killing of the lecturer.
Mrs. Waku said: “It is true. It is on our (the university’s) WhatsApp handle and I believe it has happened. I learnt he was killed at the J.S Tarka Foundation in Makurdi. At least for now, that’s the fact and that’s all I have for now.”
The don only celebrated his birthday on Tuesday, November 24.
