Paul Peter Mwombe, 30, disappeared on Saturday and his family had been searching for him before his body was found locked in a room in his house.

He added that his nose was found bleeding but the body did not bear any signs of injury.
His relative Ilam Soita is pleading for help to give Mr. Mwombe a decent send-off.
