The immediate past Provost of the Federal College of Education (FCE) Obudu, Chief Eugene Ibli has died.

CrossRiverWatch gathered from sources close to the family that Ibli kicked the bucket in Makurdi, Benue state where he has been receiving treatment for a condition the source did not disclose.

Ibli, a third degree Knight of Saint Mulumba in the Roman Catholic Church became Provost of FCE Obudu in September 2011 after serving in acting capacity from April in the same year following the end of the tenure of his predecessor, Mr. Joseph Ntibi.

His confirmation by the National Council of Colleges of Education (NCCE) in September 2011 made him the first indigenous provost of the institution.

His first tenure is reported to have expired in August 2015 with a letter from NCCE directing him to hand over to one Mr. Mbuk who will act until a new Provost is selected. He was said to have refused to do so up until early 2016 where it is reported he was still lobbying hard to be returned as Provost.

Ibli, CrossRiverWatch learnt took ill and has been receiving treatment at an undisclosed medical facility in Makurdi, Benue state where he gave up the ghost Wednesday.

A source in the College told this reporter that burial arrangements are yet to be announced.
