Sofian Bu Staiya

A tribesman from Ajdabiya town who was reported missing three months ago has been found dead in Benghazi, his relatives say.

28-year-old Sofian Bu Staiya, from Magharba tribe, was found handcuffed in a landfill in Zeet Street in Benghazi with signs of torture and a gunshot to the head.

His relatives said they managed to identify his body at Benghazi Medical Center after three months of abduction from Ajdabiya, some 213km southwest of Benghazi.

“He was abducted by the Salafist-led Investigation and Arrest Squad of Dignity Operation in August near his house”, said one of his relatives.

Sofian Bu Staiya was a former member of Ibrahim Jodran-led Petroleum Facilities Guard.
