A don of the Rivers State University (RSU), Prof. Emmanuel Amadi, has been murdered in his residence at Rumuorlumeni, Port Harcourt.

The deceased, a professor of Microbiology lived with his family in his personal house, not far from the state-owned Ignatius Ajuru University of Education, Rumuorlumeni.

The area is notorious for crime, especially kidnapping, cultism, robbery and assassination.

A source, who is close to the family, described the murder as barbaric and pathetic, considering Amadi’s contributions to human capital development, research, teaching and community service.

Spokesman of the university Sydney Enyindah said: “Prof. Amadi was attacked in his house at Rumuorlumeni, Port Harcourt today (yesterday) by robbers. The sad information came while we were having management meeting today (yesterday). The situation will become clearer tomorrow (today).”

Police spokesman Nnamdi Omoni said: “I spoke with the Vice Chancellor, Prof. Blessing Didia, five minutes before you called me, and he said he heard of the attack on Prof. Amadi from the grapevine, without official communication from the family.” (The Nation)
