According to Vanguard, Abuul was killed by his wife and his dead body dumped in the River Katsina/Ala.
Here is what the family source told Vanguard:
“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.
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.”
Confirming the incident, the Police
Public Relations Officer, PPRO,
Assistant Superintendent, ASP, Moses
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.”
