A father of three, Emeka Eje, who went missing in Kano has been found dead in Hotoro Quarters, Nassarawa local government area of the state.

Though, circumstances surrounding his death are still sketchy but the general suspicion was that the commercial motorcyclist was stabbed to death by thieves who also made away with his bike.

His lifeless body was found abandoned in a location on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, three days after he was reported missing.

A close family source who confirmed the incident on Wednesday, May 15, said the deceased recently lost his father and was preparing for the burial.

According to the source, Emeka left home for work on Saturday night, May 11, and never returned.

The family had reported the case at a police station and checked various hospitals.

A search for the man which began on Sunday, yielded no fruit until Tuesday when he was found dead.

“According to the information I got from them because I’m based in Lagos, the wife said that her husband came to her shop on Saturday night, around 8pm. She served him food and the man entered his bike and left,” the source narrated.

“According to my sister, the man always works at night. He doesn’t work in the daytime. He picked a passenger from the park to a location.

“The wife waited till Sunday morning when he normally came back. She became worried and went to alert my sister that she hasn’t seen her husband.

“My sister told her that it’s too early and that her husband probably decided to work more before returning home.

“But people started panicking when he still didn’t return at about 10am and his phone number was unavailable

“They went to the Okada union to make an inquiry. Those people said that they saw him at about 10pm on Saturday night when he picked a passenger and left

“They made complaints to the police station and searched for him everywhere, including hospitals, but all effort proved abortive

“They continued the search on Monday when information had circulated in the area. During the search, some people showed the family a video of a man lying lifeless on the road with stab wounds.

“That was how they found him. The body was recovered on Tuesday and deposited at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital mortuary. That’s all I can say at the moment,” the source added
