Sharon's father had rushed to the hospital after police informed the family that a woman’s body had been found dumped in the forest.

When Oyamo showed up for the meeting at the hotel he insisted that they change the venue claiming that the hotel was no longer conducive.

The PA directed the journalist and the lady only identified as Sharon to proceed to a car parked outside that would take them to the meeting place.

After driving for a few minutes they were stopped by unidentified men.
