Investigations have also indicated that the deceased had spent two days at the home of the two security guards before he was later killed and body stuck in a sack.
“The motive of the murder is not yet clear but we shall be able to establish. We don’t want to confirm now whether there was a lot that they failed to share or there was a deal that went wrong but there are leads coming in,” Enanga added
