Relative of the deceased told DAILY POST that Kamal, was her younger brother, had gone missing after he went out to play. She said his body was discovered three days later.

When contacted, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, of the Nasarawa State Command, DSP Ranhan Nansel, said he was oblivious of the incident at the time of writing this report.
