Residents of Ascension Town and passersby in the morning of last Friday were struck with shock and disbelief at the sight of a male corpse with fatal bruises, slashes and punctures.
The corpse was discovered in a slope almost opposite the infamous Hafarma pub.
Sources at the scene identified the deceased, as Abdul Kamara, 27 also known as Wizzy. They said he is a scrap metal dealer and a landlord of some of the shacks constructed at the ‘bomeh’ dumpsite.
According to police sources, the deceased was murdered but the reason is yet to be established since the matter is under investigation.
AIG West Division, A. Kelie, said as a trained officer from Nigeria, he knows how to deal with area boys.
The AIG said the spate of stabbings and murders are becoming alarming in his area of operation. “I want the police to be given the free hand to do their job; to manifest drastic examples. That will put this nonsense under control,” he angrily asserted.
