Reports coming in says a 25-year-old Nigerian man identified as Rabiu Adamu also known as Bamanga, was allegedly killed in his room in Ruga, Area One, a makeshift area near Abuja City gate.
Ruga is a settlement of mostly labourers and women of easy virtues near city gate with most of the houses built with wood and covered with plastics, popularly called “Batcher.”
The father of the deceased Bamanga, Adamu Isyaku told the Police, a Pathologist and friends of the deceased that, “We are from Numan Town of Adamawa State. I have identified my son as the deceased and he should be buried.
A pathologist who preferred anonymity, said the deceased had his throat cut, with signs that a sharp object, likely a knife was used to hit him in the chest which led to his death due to loss of blood.
Neighbors said, it was likely that Bamanga was killed on Monday night or Tuesday morning as his generator was running and his sound system was playing music throughout that period.
Some curious colleagues who did not see him for two days and noticed that the room was not locked found his dead body which was partially buried in his room before they alerted the police.
The late Bamanga was buried under the supervision of the District Head of Karmajiji, Alhaji Yunusa Bako Abdullahi who called on his subjects to always abide by the law and eschew violence.
The late Bamanga was a staff of an NGO, Heartland Alliance International.
The Police in Wuye confirmed the incident, saying they have arrested five people in connection with the murder.
