AAU graduate Ella Williams killed by alleged shepherds

A Facebook user, Andrew Egbuonu, who announced Williams’ death on his wall on Sunday June 13th, said she had just completed her Masters in Architecture from the AAU.

Part of Egbuonu’s post read:

“I have the devastating news of the death of a young lady and a bright future for the Nigerian nation, Miss Ella Williams, in the Hands of bloodthirsty and heartless shepherds on Benin-Ekpoma Road in the state of Edo.

“Miss Williams, who is currently doing her Masters in Architecture at Ambrose Alli University Ekpoma is said to have traveled from their base in Benin to pick up their convocation letter. She never made it back as her vehicle was attacked by murderous looters who ambushed vehicles by opening fire on them with their handguns (also known as AK-47 assault rifles) and killing them on the spot. What a country where human life has no value, especially for these emotionless invaders. “

The Benin-Ekpoma-Auchi-Okene road has become a haven for presumed shepherds and Kidnappers who fire shots at vehicles every day to stop the drivers and passengers kidnapped for ransom.
