According to information gathered, the lecturer was using his car for taxi business in order to take care of himself and his family following the nine-month Academic Staff Union of Universities strike which led to the withholding of salaries of lecturers for months.
A source noted that the lecturer went missing on Sunday after a yet-to-be-identified person called him to come to Udemezue in Abakaliki to pick customers to a popular eatery along Ogoja Road.
A source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said, “The young man was a lecturer in Physiology Department, Alex Ekwueme Federal University Ndufu Alike-Ikwo, Ebonyi State, Nigeria.”
“Owing to the withheld salaries of lecturers for over four months, Kyrian registered his car for taxi service to be able to feed his family (wife and his 2-year-old daughter).”
“Kyrian was called to go and pick customers at Udemezue street and drop them at a popular eatery known for local delicacies at Ogoja Road, Abakaliki, on Sunday 10th January. He didn’t return as his lifeless body was found the next day near the Rice Mill along the same Ogoja road with bullet wounds on his body and his car missing.”
“My prayer is that the perpetrators of this evil act will never go unpunished. Ebonyi State Government and indeed security agency should sit up and bring the culprit to book.”
