Khalid Ibrahim Ndaman, Director of Veterinary in the Kwara State Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, was on Monday found dead in his office in Ilorin, the state capital.
Ndaman was discovered dead when one of the workers went to meet him about an hour after he arrived to discuss a pending official matter.
He was said to have been resting his head on his desk.
“The staff knocked on his door, but no response. So, after some time he went inside. There was a pending official matter since Friday that he needed to conclude with him so he needed to see him.
“Having waited outside and no response the staff went inside the office and met him resting his head on the table. He greeted him but no response until he moved close and touched him to realize that he’s already dead,” Tribune quoted a source to have said.
Ajayi Okasanmi, spokesman of the police in the state, said the case seems like a sudden natural death but investigation is ongoing.
