The killer(s) of 64-year-old security guard Mohammed Haniff are still enjoying freedom more than 48 hours after their senseless act.
Police yesterday noted that the investigations are continuing and that no arrests have been made in the matter. Sources said that they are trying to locate anyone who might have seen or heard something related to the murder.
Haniff was brutally murdered on Tuesday night at his worksite, which is located opposite Mings Services Limited at Providence. A bloodied piece of iron, according to police sources, was recovered at the scene and a bloodied tarpaulin upon which his bashed-in head lay, told the gruesome tale of how Haniff met his demise. Relatives yesterday said that they were praying that the police locate the persons responsible for the inexplicable crime.
Haniff’s niece, Anastacia Gordon had told Kaieteur News on Wednesday that her uncle had been employed with the guard service for the past year and had been at the Providence location for the past four months.
It was reported that Gordon’s mother, Jocelyn Griffith, was the person who received the news of the death sometime around 09:00hrs on Wednesday, after which a number of relatives rushed to the Providence location.
Haniff who hailed from First Street, Alexander Village, worked with Dynamic Security. Gordon said blood was oozing from Haniff’s mouth and his head appeared to be bashed in. The woman explained that she was told by her uncle’s boss that two containers were broken into and a generator among other items was taken from the worksite. Gordon said she was always skeptical about her uncle’s job because of other guards that were killed at their worksites.
“I always used to ask if the bandits came what he would do….he used to tell me that he would leave them to take whatever,” the woman cried. “He was at an Eccles location but removed because he said it was too lonely and they brought him here,” the niece explained.
Owner of the security company, Randolph Perreira, stated that the last time he saw Haniff was sometime after midnight on the night that he died. Perreira explained that he did routine checks at the worksite three times, 21:15, 21:30 and lastly at 00:15hrs.
He said that he and Haniff spoke briefly and he left the worksite and returned home. It was around 06:00hrs on Wednesday when he received a telephone call and he and his driver rushed to the worksite. He said that upon reaching the site, he noticed a number of tracks and the fence was thrown down.
He began checking around the worksite and a few seconds later he heard the driver call out to him. Perriera said he was shocked at the scene, calling the killer(s) beastly for doing something like that. He immediately called the police who arrived shortly after since their station is literally just up the road.
According to Perriera, this was not the first time that thieves had attacked the worksite. He told Kaieteur News that one time he even caught a man loading up things and the police were called in.
