Neighbours who noticed suspicious activity in the compound informed the authorities and the police’s Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) recovered the poor guy’s body after the suspects fessed up to the crime.


“The body of the Jumia delivery man was recovered by SARS operatives after neighbours reported suspicious movement. He went missing on Saturday after he went to deliver 2 iPhones and a motor bike to a customer at the Ada George compound.” She tweeted.
