The area is poorly lit coupled with large clump of bushes on the side of the road and the road is in a terrible state. Residents said the area is frequented by criminal elements. They believe that the man was fighting with his attacker who shot him in the stomach.  When the gunshots ended it was then residents discovered the man’s motionless body in a pool of blood. According to residents the man was left lying there for more than an hour before help arrived and when the ambulance came to take the body away they were ordered by the police to put it back on the scene.
