A security guard, Yunusa Umar, 42, was killed in Pasali community in Kuje Area Council of the FCT by unknown persons. A resident of the area, who preferred anonymity said the deceased body was found under a mango tree with deep cuts on his head.
He said the deceased, who resided at Unguwar Zara and was married with three children, was a guard at a provision shop in the area. He said a neighbor who owns a shop in the area came out to sweep the front of his shop when the deceased was found lying lifeless under the mango tree, in which the police were alerted immediately.
“And they immediately called the SA security to the council chairman, who later phoned the police who came to pick the corpse to the hospital,” he said.
