OTJIWARONGO, 15 JAN (NAMPA) – The police in the Oshikoto Region have called on the public to assist in tracing the family members of a man who died under unknown circumstances in the Onamutenya village, situated in the Omuntele Constituency in the same region.
The man is only known as Joseph Ndjedi. He was 27.
The region’s police spokesperson, Chief Inspector Stephan Nuuyi said in a statement issued to Nampa on Friday that Ndjedi is suspected to have come from Angola, and was employed as a cattle herder at Onamutenya village.
The man was employed by Eliaser Johannes, who also does not know the exact village Ndjedi originates from.
“We found his body on Tuesday in the fields of Onamutenya village, and we are calling on the general public, relatives and friends to come to the Okatope Police Station and identify the man and also to claim his body,” the police officer said.
Nuuyi said Ndjedi had left the house of his employer on Monday morning into the bushes to look after cattle as usual, but he never returned home that day.
The farmer informed the Okatope Police Station and together with community members launched a search for Ndjedi, who was later found dead.
Police investigations into the matter continue.
