The report filed by Martina Bugri indicates that the lifeless body of Baamunu was found hanging on a mango tree by her son after he returned home from school.

The son who chanced upon his mother’s lifeless body revealed that neighbours came around after he screamed for help.

A neighbour of the deceased who spoke with JoyNews, Abubakari Hamza disclosed that the deceased, Baamunu in the past few days was hardly seen around.
