    Last week Tuesday, the deceased called me in the morning where we spoke but on Wednesday, I tried his number but couldn’t get through, I thought he had a flat battery, until Saturday that I was called by another younger brother of mine which the deceased followed briefing me on the how efforts to reach the deceased has been abortive.

    Afterwards, the deceased apprentice was contacted. When they got the boy, they asked him about the whereabouts of his master and he said his boss woke him up at night, collected his phone smatch it on the floor and began to beat him and later asked him to sleep.

    He said, the following day, he decided to leave the site. So, we asked him, how will he wake up in the morning without seeing your boss and you left the site? He said, he thought his master went to the toilet when he left.

    When we checked the phone he said to have been smashed on the floor by the deceased, there was no scratch on it. Aside that, you switched off your phone and you didn’t report to anybody.
