Khalid Ndaman, said to be a director of veterinary services, Kwara ministry of agriculture and rural development, was found dead in his office on Monday.
While the circumstances surrounding his death are not clear, according to NAN, sources in the ministry gave different accounts of how his body was discovered.
One of the accounts held that a staff member of the ministry had raised the alarm when, after knocking on Ndaman’s door without getting a response, entered into the office and discovered that the director was dead.
Another source said Ndaman slumped and died after reporting to duty.
“He is from Tsaragi in Edu local government area of Kwara, and the corpse has been taken there for burial,” a worker, who preferred not to be named, said.
“The ministry had wanted to take the corpse to the hospital for autopsy, but some family members said it was not necessary since he just slumped and died.”
Ajayi Okasanmi, the police public relations officer (PPRO), Kwara state, confirmed that Ndaman was found dead in his office.
“The guy died in the office. It was discovered this morning that he died in the office,” Okasanmi said.
“Although no foul play is suspected, investigation into the incident still continues.”
