A Cameraman with the Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS), Mr Ikechukwu Onubogu, has been discovered in Obosi area, Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State, four days after he was declared missing by members of his family.

Onubogu was said to have been found by the men of the Nigerian Police Force at Obosi, near Onitsha.

Though the cause of his death is yet to be clear, News Express gathered that the deceased was at home with his wife when he received a phone call in the afternoon of November 12.

After answering the call, he was said to have immediately taken his camera and left his home, located near the popular Aroma Junction in Awka, but never returned.

In a statement issued yesterday by the Managing Director of ABS, Mr Uche Nworah, he described late Onubogu as a peace-loving man that nobody would ever expect that someone would want to harm him.

The statement reads in part; “The horrific death of our beloved and hardworking staff, Onubogu, has thrown the entire ABS family into mourning.

“He was dedicated to his job and would do anything to capture images that will help viewers to make meaning of every developing story.

“We will surely miss him. We cannot speculate at this time the circumstances leading to his death as the police is already working hard to unravel what happened.

“Our thoughts remain with his family, particularly his wife, who recently gave birth.”

Nworah described Onubogu’s death a reminder of the dangers journalists face in Africa, in the course of discharging their professional responsibilities.

He urged friends, colleagues and associates of late Onubogu to remember the family in their prayers.

Confirming the incident, the state Police/Public Relations Officer, ASP Nkeiru Nwode, who commiserated with the family, assured the public that the police would uncover Onobogu’s killers.

She said that the police has commenced investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death, adding: “We assure the public that no stone would be left unturned, until the perpetrators are brought to justice.”
