“According to reports, the deceased was going for an errand with his brother.

“So, on their way, they met three men sitting where they called the victim and asked the other boy to go ahead with the errand, saying that they would send him to call their girlfriends in one of the houses nearby.

“And that was how it all started, so it was when the boy came back that the mother began to ask of the whereabouts of the victim.

“And after the boy narrated what happened to her, they began to search for the deceased but all in vain.
