The daughter of one of the aides of Nasarawa State Governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura has been beheaded.

20-year-old Memuna Galadima, the daughter of Mustapha Galadima, Al-Makura’s Special Adviser on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs was found dead after going missing on Thursday, February 26, 2015.

The victim’s corpse was found in a well along Agwan Ozoro, in the Karshi development area of the state, Punch reports.

Memuna was a student of the Nasarawa State University before her untimely death.

“It was on Thursday, February 26, 2015. My daughter left home for school to sit for a test at the Pianku campus along Nasarawa Road along with three of her friends,” Galadima said confirming the incident.

He said further that Memuna didn’t return and her whereabouts remained unknown until he was informed of the discovery of her corpse.

“Upon hearing the news, I mobilised people to go there and check if it were her remains that were found. On reaching there, the search team told me that the body had decomposed beyond recognition. They added that the body was found inside a deep well, saying several attempts made to remove the corpse from the well were unsuccessful,” he said.

“It was when the police brought her picture that we were able to identify her through her legs and there was nothing we could do but to bury her there according to Muslim injunctions,” he added.

Unknown attackers recently beheaded the pregnant daughter of the Director General of Al – Makura’s Campaign Organisation, Musa Illu.

Al-Makura’s driver was also recently assassinated while travelling within the state with his wife on November 8, 2014.
