Graduate shot dead by suspected herdsmen on her way to AAU Ekpoma to collect NYSC call-up letter

Suspected herdsmen have reportedly killed a graduate of Architecture from the Ambrose Alli University (AAU), Ekpoma, Edo State, Ella Williams, along the Benin-Ekpoma-Auchi highway.

Williams was said to be travelling from Benin to Ekpoma to pick up her call up letter, preparatory to joining the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme, when the bandits shot the bus in which she was travelling, killing her on the spot, while other passengers were kidnapped.

Announcing Williams’ death on his Facebook wall, Andrew Egbuonu, wrote: “I received the devastating news of the demise of a young lady and a promising future of the Nigerian nation, Ella Williams in the hands of bloodthirsty and heartless herdsmen on the Benin-Ekpoma road in Edo State.

“What a country where human life has no value, especially to these emotion-less invaders!”

It’s also said that the Benin-Ekpoma-Auchi-Okene Road has become a den for herdsmen and kidnappers, who shoot at vehicles and kidnap passengers for ransom daily.
