Thousands march against armed violence in northern Mozambique
Police in Mozambique are investigating the death of Nigerian expatriate Benson Idiong, who was director of Ogumaniha, a project of World Vision-Mozambique, which works in the area of sexual and reproductive health.
A World Vision press release emailed to APA on Saturday revealed that the body of Idiong was found in his home on Wednesday, and that the Christian non-governmental relief organisation is working with the police to find out the cause of death.
“The organisation is also collaborating with the criminal division of the police of Mozambique to determine the circumstances in which Idiong’s death occurred,” read the note.
World Vision-Mozambique added that it is in contact with the widow of the deceased in Nigeria, providing the necessary assistance.
Director of Ogumaniha since January 2017, Idiong, 52, lived alone in Quelimane in the capital of the central province of Zambézia, where he implemented project activities.
Previously, he worked in several Mozambican non-governmental organisations for about 15 years.
World Vision has been operating in Mozambique since 1983, and provides food, water and sanitation, health care, education, livelihoods and support to protect hundreds of thousands of children in some of the country’s most vulnerable communities.Source: APA
