BARELY 24 hours after two black coffins draped with red strip marks were deposited at the gates of the official residence of the former Bursar of the University of Benin (UNIBEN), Dr. May Ifeoma Nwoye , another coffin with an earthenware containing sacrificial items were, on Friday night, deposited at the door steps to her apartment.
The items in the earthenware include a dead rabbit, a carved image of a human being, and three eggs. Nwoye said that she woke up, yesterday morning, to see the coffin and items at her door steps, saying they were not there before she went to bed.
She told journalists that she immediately contacted the EDHA Police Station whose officials came to the house, took her statement before removing the coffin and the items.
The former Bursar therefore appealed for police protection, saying that those after her life and that of her family were bent on forcing her out UNIBEN at all costs.
Nwoye disclosed that since the issue of who becomes the next Bursar of the institution came up and she indicated her interest to be retained, she had been receiving anonymous telephones calls threatening to deal with her if she did not forget her ambition to be re-appointed for second term as Bursar.
