The Benue State Police Command on Sunday confirmed the killing of an Associate Professor with the Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Karl Kwaghger, by unknown gunmen.

Kwaghger, who was a lecturer in the university’s Mechanical Engineering Department, was killed by the hoodlums on Saturday night.

The command’s spokesperson, DSP Catherine Anene, told the News Agency of Nigeria NAN on Sunday in Makurdi that the lecturer’s body was found around 11p.m. within the Tarka Foundation premises, Makurdi.

The state-owned Tarka Foundation houses a hotel and many other sports facilities which draw many people almost round the clock.

Anene, however, said that the command had yet to make any arrest or unravel the reason behind the killing, but added that investigation was ongoing.
