January 8, 2017, 3:01 am

The Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, is displeased with how the police are handling the case of Christiana Agbulu, a lecturer with Federal University of Agriculture, Makurdi, who was abducted last November 26 but found murdered last Wednesday, in Lokoja.

Chairman of Nsukka Zone of the association, Prof. Ukwoh Ikoli, disclosed this while speaking with newsmen at the end of ASUU zonal meeting at the weekend held at the Federal University, Lokoja.

Ikoli called for justice on the murder of their colleague, saying their apprehension stemmed from the negligent way such cases in the past had been handled by the police.

The ASUU boss, who said the body will go to any length to demand justice for their slain colleague, urged the police to ensure that the culprits are prosecuted in line with the law of the land.

He said the union was ready to embark on private prosecution of the case, asking the police to conclude investigation on time and hands off the case if it knew it will not pursue the case to a logical conclusion.
