Top Nigerian Government Official Commits Suicide After Visiting EFCC.
Onyxnewsng gathered that Mr Christopher Orji, an assistant director of the National Biotechnology Development Agency (NABDA), is said to have committed suicide in Abuja.
Orji’s lifeless body was discovered dangling from a ceiling fan at his home in Federal Housing Authority Estate, Lugbe, Abuja at about 4 p.m. on 30th August.
Police homicide detectives were still investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of 59-year-old Orji, according to sources within NABDA.
Reports said he was summoned to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) office in Abuja on the day he was discovered dead.
However, one of the agency’s employees, who asked to remain anonymous, claimed Orji could not have killed himself because no suicide note was found at his home.
Nkiru Amakeze, NABDA’s Acting Head of Communications and Protocol, refused to comment when contacted.
“So, what exactly do you want me to say now?” Please understand that I am unable to comment on the matter,” Amakaeze simply stated to our reporter.
Until his death, Orji was the coordinator of the NABDA’s Bioresource Centre in Langtang, Plateau State.
