One of the chief assistants with Dangote Industries Limited, Istifanus Bello Gurama, has been reportedly murdered three weeks after his kidnap.
Gurama’s body, which was dumped in a gutter by the alleged kidnappers, was found on Monday.
Prior to his death, Gurama was said to be the key negotiator of ransoms between the Dangote Industries and kidnappers whenever expatriates working with the company were kidnapped, PUNCH reports.
He was said to have gone as usual to negotiate the release of an expatriate when the captors besieged him, saying he was their original target.
The deceased’s wife said of his death, “Gurama was a lovely person, if he is not in the house one day, the children will be asking after him endlessly.
“Now, I do not know what to tell the children because he is always chatting with them on social media and phone and for three weeks since his disappearance, they have been wondering where he was because all his activities on social media ceased and the children have observed that it is quite unlike him.”
