Alima Bi claims her husband, found dead on a Labasa road yesterday, was a victim of foul play.

“I know someone killed my husband,” an emotional Ms Bi said.

Ms Bi, 55, has called on Police to bring those responsible to justice.

Her husband, Abdul Munaf Saheb, 53, was found dead on Qawa Road near a sugarcane field.

Mr Saheb worked as a supervisor of joinery section at Valebasoga Tropik Board Limited (VTBL) in Labasa.

He also did part-time job at Vodafone Fiji and at the Fijian Elections office also in Labasa.

Ms Bi said her husband came home after work on Wednesday and had something to eat. She said at around 7pm he told her that he was going to a relative’s house not far from their home.

“He said to me I am going to assist him fill the income tax return form and would return home around 10pm,” Ms Bi said.

“He always made himself available to help people who needed his help.

“We all know in the house that my husband would go out and return home before 4am, because he never missed work.

“When I woke up around 4am and found my husband missing, I alerted my son,” the mother of three said.

“He said not to worry mum because father always returns home.”

“The relative he was supposed to meet said my husband did not come to their house last night. So where did he go?

“I never thought in my life that my husband would leave us like this,” she said in tears.

“I am just praying that whoever carried out this cruel act will be punished accordingly.”

Her son, Shazeed Saheb, 30, said he was in his housing block when he received an early morning call from Police to identify his father’s body.

“When I arrived at the scene, I was shocked to see my father lying on the road without shoes on his feet; his face had bruises and a circular mark around his neck. His clothes weren’t soiled,” he said.

“It was unusual to see my father without shoes on that road.

“My father never uses this road either to go home or for work.”

Police spokesperson, Ana Naisoro, said an unknown caller rang after 6am and reported the matter after which a team of officers was deployed to the scene.

“The victim was found lying along Qawa Road with visible injuries, and at this stage it is too early to classify the case,” Ms Naisoro said.

“The post mortem of the victim would be conducted soon as investigations continue.”
