Dr Shola Eshiobo, the Dean of Students, Auchi Polytechnic, Auchi in Edo State, was on Sunday found dead in his office after he reportedly went to the office and did not return.

According to Vanguard, the wife of the deceased alerted their neighbours and family members that her husband did not return home after he left for the office on Saturday.

A source said, “He left home on Saturday afternoon that he was going to the office to attend to some official matter. He normally goes to the office when he has so much in his hands to do. At about 9 pm when he was not yet back home, the wife started calling his line but there was no response and the call was not returned. She tried until late (at night), still no response.
