“Early on Sunday morning, she raised the alarm and told people around that the husband went to the office on Saturday but did not return.
”They went to the office, they saw his vehicle at the car park but when they got to his office they saw him dead in his office.”
The source added that although there was no suspicion of any foul play, an autopsy will be carried out to ascertain the cause of the death.
