WINDHOEK: No arrests have been made in connection with the alleged murder of International University of Management (IUM) student Eliakim Kandali Inane yet.
The 31-year-old Inane’s burned body was found in the vicinity of Otjomuise on the western outskirts of the capital last Saturday morning.
The Namibian Police Force (NamPol)’s Khomas Regional Crime Investigations Co-ordinator, Deputy Commissioner Sylvanus Nghishidimbwa told Nampa on Sunday that the police are still hard at work tracing the suspect or suspects involved in the alleged killing of the student.
“We are now hard at work to ensure that whoever is a suspect in connection with the killing of the IUM student will be arrested and brought to book,” said Nghishidimbwa, before urging members of the public to assist where possible in the matter.
The student is thought to have been attacked while driving a taxi belonging to his cousin. The vehicle was then apparently set on fire with Inane inside it.
Nghishidimbwa said the motive for the killing is still unknown as nothing was removed from the vehicle.
The police believe that more than one person was involved in the alleged murder.
