Mr. George who works as a security personnel in the council had resumed work on Friday, 28 December, 2018; but was found dead at the early hours of Saturday, December 29 at the premises of the council.

“See what happened this morning oh. Just this morning after we were about to close from work, and we went to check each other like we normally do. Only for us to see that man, our colleague lying down on the floor, unknowingly to us that he is dead. The shocking part is that we met him with a necked body. We have called the NULGE Chairman and his family and told them about it,” said one of the deceased colleague who pleaded anonymity.

Another colleague to the deceased who gave account of the incidence said, “It is strange how this man just died like that. When he came to work last night he was looking strong, he was not looking sick. We were even discussing for a long time last night before everyone went to their shift.

“And it looked as if he struggled with himself before he died. We even saw foam coming out of his mouth; with a necked body and we were the people that wore him his clothes. Just that the council is not taking care of us inspite of this harsh working conditions.”

As at press time, the Police in Ugep has been contacted; while the remains of the deceased has been evacuated to the mortuary; as family sources say they will carry out a post-mortem test to enable them understand the cause of his death.
