Bashir Mohamed Mohamud an American- Somali businessman who was killed by unknown assailants died of strangulations after being tortured.

In a postmortem conducted by Government pathologist Johannes Oduor at Umash Funeral Home on Monday, May 24, Bashir’s body had multiple wounds on his head which was caused by blunt objects.

In addition, he had burn wounds and was also injured in his toe and fingernails.

“He died of strangulations. There is evidence of torture on his nails and toes. The postmortem was done in the presence of police officers from Dagoretti and officers from the Forensic Department of the DCI,” Charles Madowo his lawyer said.

The lawyer said that Bashir will be buried on Monday afternoon and that they will follow up on the matter until he gets justice.

It remains unclear who ended his life and for what reasons.

His body was recovered on May 15, three days after he was declared missing and a report filed at Muthangari police station.

This was a day after his Range Rover car was found abandoned in Kibiku, Ngong in Kajiado county.

His brother Omar Osman told K24 Digital that it was really unfortunate that his killers opted to end his life in such a cruel manner.

“We are praying to Allah and we hope that we shall get to know what really happened. These issues must come to an end as a family we need to have our rights respected,” he said.
