Dean of Students’ Affairs of Federal Polytechnic Auchi in Edo State, Dr. Shola Eshiobo was reported to have been found dead in his office on Sunday.
A family source who craved anonymity said the lifeless body of Eshiobo was discovered in his office on Sunday morning.
The search for him started when the dean’s wife raised alarm he did not return home on Saturday evening after leaving for office in the afternoon for official matters.
The source said, “He went to the office after leaving the house on Saturday afternoon. He said he was going to the office to attend to some official matters. He normally goes to the office when he has so much in his hands to do.
“At about 9pm when he was not yet back home, the wife started calling his line but he did not take the calls and didn’t call back. She tried until late, still no response.
“Early on Sunday morning, she raised an alarm and told people around that the husband went to the office on Saturday but did not return. They went to the office, they saw his vehicle at the car park, but when they got into his office, they saw his lifeless body.”
The dean’s body was later deposited at an undisclosed morgue.
“The corpse has been deposited at the mortuary. Although we are not suspecting any foul play, for now, an autopsy will be carried out,” the source added.
When contacted the Public Relations Officer of Auchi polytechnic, Mustapha Oshiobugie, who confirmed the incident, stated it was shocking and least expected.
“We heard about the unfortunate incident this (Sunday) morning. The body has been taken to the morgue. An official statement will be made available on Monday,” he stated.
