Nigerian security guard found stabbed to death near Mile 3 on Western Highway

Police say that they’ve found a male body between Mile 3 and 4 on the Western Highway. That man has since been identified to Amandala as Abayomi Olatunji, a Nigerian security guard of J&B Security Services.
  
We have also been informed by members of the Nigerian community that Olatunji had been in the country for a mere five months.
  
Police told us that at around 12:30 p.m. yesterday, they found the body lying in a pile of garbage on a feeder road off Mile 3 in the vicinity of Cisco Construction.
  
A post-mortem has not been conducted as yet, but police say that he had suffered what appeared to be as much as fifteen stab wounds. They saw wounds on his chest area, his face, and his left arm.
  
Police think that the man was murdered sometime between Thursday and yesterday, Friday. They also believe that he was not killed in the area; rather, they believe that he was killed elsewhere and dumped there.
  
The area, residents say, has seen several bodies over the years, where culprits dispose of their victims due to its seclusion.
  
Police have not announced any suspects or motives for this man’s murder at this point in their investigation.
