A staff of Auchi Polytechnic, Mr Samuel Okolie, who was said to have been abducted by gunmen on Oct. 9 has been found dead.

Mr Okolie was found dead on his farm at Aviele community, near Auchi in the Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo early on Sunday.

Mr Okolie’s death occurred barley two weeks after another staff of the polytechnic, Dr S. Okhikhena, described as Mr Okolie’s close friend was similarly murdered.

Mr Okolie was said to have been abducted on his way to his farm after close of work to pick people working for him.

His mutilated body was dumped close to a truck he was said to be driving when he was abducted by the gunmen.

But the Commissioner of Police in Edo, Mr Danmallam Mohammed, who confirmed the incident, said that Mr Okolie was not abducted.

Mr Mohammed said the death was “probably a case of suicide as parts of the deceased’s body was bathed with acid.

“It is probably a case of suicide because nothing was taken away from him and also from his vehicle.

“You know the rate of suicide is very high and his own cannot be an exception.”

The commissioner said the investigation would be carried out by the command to ascertain what led to Mr Okolie’s death.
