A middle-aged man has been found d**d in the booth of his car on the busy Abakaliki/Afikpo Expressway in Ebonyi State.
The man, Mr. Samuel Aleke, was said to be the younger brother of Victor Aleke, who represents Ebonyi North West in the state House of Assembly.
Aleke was said to have left his house in the evening of Saturday, May 23, and was not seen until Sunday in the booth of his car d**d.
