Institution's pioneer provost reportedly killed by assassins

The victim who took to a fish farming business in his hometown upon retirement, was killed in a way similar to his brother's.

The sad incident occurred at the Kiagbodo community located in Burutu Local Government Area of Delta State according to the Daily Post News. The niece of the deceased, Mrs. Edisemi Dayeibi, confirmed the incident to newsmen.

“Dr. Johnson Dittimi was shot dead by assassins in his house last night,” she said in a statement.

Sad reactions have followied the demise of the late academician whose body has already been deposited at a mortuary in Warri.

The councilor of Kiagbodo DSIEC Ward 13 of the Burutu Local Government Area described the assassination as an act opposed to the teachings of God.

“It is barbaric,” he began.

“Taking people’s lives in such a brutal manner is wrong and negates the principles and teachings of God. We have to settle whatever grievances we have with people instead of taking their lives.

"His death remains a big blow to the entire Ijaw nation, particularly to Ngbilebiri Kingdom.”

Before his untimely passing, Dittimi who is a retiree often visits his country home where he supervises a fish farming business. His brother who died before him was reported to have suffered a similar fate.
