Emmanuel Amadi, a lecturer at the Rivers State University (RSU) has been confirmed killed by unknown gunmen.
Sydney Enyindah, spokesman of the university, said “Prof. Amadi was attacked in his house at Rumuorlumeni, Port Harcourt in the early hours of today by armed robbers.”
“The sad information came while we were having management meeting. The situation will become clearer tomorrow.”
Nnamdi Omoni, spokesman of the Rivers police command, said: “I spoke with the Vice-Chancellor of RSU, Port Harcourt, Prof. Blessing Didia, five minutes before you called me,”
“The VC of RSU told me through the telephone that he heard of the attack on Prof. Amadi from the grapevine, without official communication from the family to the university’s authorities.”
