NTA Reporter shot dead in Edo

A reporter with the Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Benin, Mr. Lawrence Okojie, was allegedly shot dead by gunmen on Saturday night in Benin. Okojie was said to have been killed around Ogunola Junction, off Siluko Road.

The spokesman of the State Police Command, DSP Moses Nkombe, who confirmed the report, said one person had been arrested in connection with the incident.

Late Okojie, who was dropped off by NTA staff bus at Ogunola Junction around 8: 00 p.m. on Saturday, had called his wife on phone and informed her that he was on his way home.

It was, however, several hours later that the wife, after repeated calls to his phone without any response raised an alarm that her husband, who was supposed to have arrived home could not be reached.

It was gathered that some of his colleagues at NTA who were joined by some family members on a search mission, discovered his corpse in a morgue in Benin on Sunday night.

The police have promised to thoroughly investigate the matter.
