A Nigerian woman who went missing for days prior to her wedding has been found buried in a shallow grave on her compound.
Preliminary investigation indicates that she was killed by her own security guard for reasons investigators are yet to unravel. Sources say the security man was suspected after it emerged that he was seen driving one of her cars with his wife and children inside. This called for an investigation and police searched the missing woman’s compound to find the shallow grave.
The police have since exhumed the woman’s corpse during which it was discovered that she was stabbed several times on her stomach and her throat was slit while her hands and legs were tied up.
