A Muslim cleric has been reportedly found lifeless in an uncompleted building in the Federal Capital Territory after many hours of missing.
Malam Abdurrashid Usman was found dead in an uncompleted building situated close to his farm.
The deceased who is said to be the Iman of a Kubwa Muslim Cemetery reportedly left his house on Wednesday morning but failed to return.
One of his relatives, Adamu Isma’ila who confirmed the development to reporters, said the incident was immediately reported to the police while the family were in search of the Imam.
He told newsmen that they split in groups into the bush around Gado-Nasko farm from 8:00 pm till 12:00 am, but couldn’t trace Usman. Ismaila, however, noted that the Imam’s clothes, a wheel truck that he used, as well as his axe, and the firewood he had cut from the bush were found.
The relative said: “Yesterday morning, we conducted another round of search around the same location, and we were in the process of giving up when one of us advised that we should extend the search to an uncompleted building.
“We met his body with injuries on his head looking like he was hit with some of the firewood found close to the body.”
Meanwhile, Taraba State Governor, Darius Dickson Ishaku, has expressed fear over the invasion and activities of terror armed men in the state.
The governor alleged that there are some Amazonian terrorists infiltrating the state and causing mayhem.
Ishaku called on the federal government to as a matter of urgency order the deployment of troops to border communities to halt the chaotic activities of the terror armed men.
He alleged that the terrorists from Cameroon have been unleashing terror on the residents of the state, Naija News reports.
