Dean, Students’ Affairs, Auchi Polytechnic, Edo State, Dr. Shola Eshiobo, has been found dead in his office.

A family source said the lifeless body of Eshiobo was discovered in his office on Sunday morning, after the wife raised the alarm that the lecturer did not return home from work on Saturday.

“He went to office Saturday afternoon that he was going to attend to some official matter. He normally goes to the office when he has so much to do. At about 9pm when he was not back, the wife started calling his line, but the call was not returned. She tried until late, still no response.

“The payment of UTME registration fees I must hasten to say will not be a mandatory policy on government.
