Reacting, the Managing Director of ABS, Mr Uche Nworah, described late Onubogu as such a peace loving and hardworking man that one would never expect that anybody would want to harm him.

Nwora, in a statement, said the horrific death had thrown the entire ABS family into mourning, saying he would surely be missed. He said Onubogu’s death was a reminder of the dangers journalists face in  the course of discharging their professional responsibilities.

The state spokesman, ASP Nkeiru Nwode, said investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death had commenced.

While commiserating with the family, she assured the public that the police would uncover Onobogu’s killers.
