FUTMINNA lecturer allegedly found dead

UTMINNA lecturer; The Federal University of Technology, Minna (FUTMINNA) in Niger State is in a state of mourning following the unexpected death of one of its staff members, Dr. Adefolalu Sherifat, a lecturer in the Department of Biochemistry in the School of Life Sciences.

Tragically, she was discovered lifeless in her residence on a Sunday morning.

Prof. Gbolahan Bolarin, ASUU chairman, reported Dr. Sherifat was found in her Gbaiko Area home, drenched in blood.

Her absence from a church service prompted her church members to check on her, leading to the grim discovery.

The report indicates that concerned residents forcibly entered her residence and found her lifeless on the floor.

Police moved her body to the mortuary. Spokesman Wasiu Abiodun of Niger State Police promised further details later.

Dr. Sherifat’s husband, also a professor at the same institution, had previously passed away, a notable mention.

Additionally, she had dismissed her female house help just the day before her demise.

Professor Abdullahi Modibbo, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of NSUK, emphasized the university’s commitment to combating kidnapping and ensuring the safety of both staff and students. While acknowledging that kidnapping is a national issue, he highlighted the university’s collaboration with the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps for on-campus security and the recruitment of vigilantes to secure off-campus areas, where students and staff have been targeted by kidnappers in the past.

Dr. Monica Adokwe, a university lecturer, was kidnapped recently but released after ransom payment, detailing a recent incident.

NSUK’s efforts show its resolve to safeguard the community, especially in off-campus areas, combating the threat of insecurity.
