SWAKOPMUND - The Namibian Police Force in Erongo is investigating a case of possible murder after a man was found dead last Wednesday morning in Kuisebmond.
Three unknown men allegedly attacked the deceased, identified as Nakanyala Wilbard (41), and the thugs also robbed him of his mobile phone, according to the police.
Crime coordinator for the Namibian Police Force (Nampol) in Erongo region, Deputy Commissioner Erastus Iikuyu said the deceased arrived on Tuesday midnight at his friends’ shack in Menesia Kamatoto Street, Kuisebmond, and complained of pain on one side of his body.
According to the friend, the deceased told him three men had attacked him and stolen his mobile phone.
“The deceased apparently sat on the couch and decided to sleep there and the friend went to his bed and slept. Around 01h00, the friend heard the deceased allegedly going to the toilet and came back to sleep,” Iikuyu said.
