The Federal agency director ‘commits suicide after EFCC invitation’
According to report reaching infoxclusive, Mr Christopher Orji, who is the assistant director of the National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA), has reportedly committed suicide in Abuja.
The lifeless body of Mr Orji was found dangling with a rope tied to a ceiling fan at his residence at Federal Housing Authority Estate, Lugbe, Abuja, at about 4pm on August 30.
A close source told newsmen that police homicide detectives were still investigating the circumstances behind the tragedy.
Infoxclusive learned that before his death, he was been invited by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to report at its Abuja office on the day he was found dead.
Meanwhile, one of the staff of the agency, who don’t want his name mentioned, claims that Orji could not have killed himself as no suicide note was found at his residence.
The NABDA’s Acting Head of Communications and Protocol, Nkiru Amakeze, when contacted declined comment.
“So, what do you want me to tell you now? Please, I can’t speak on it,” Amakaeze simply told our reporter.
Mr Orji before his death was the NABDA’s Bioresource Centre coordinator in Langtang, Plateau State of Nigeria.
