2 Nigerians Killed in South Africa
Three days after a Nigerian Businessman, Ikejiaku Chinedu was killed by operatives of a private guard company in Limpopo South Africa, two other Nigerians in the country have faced a similar fate, the President of the Nigerian Union in South Africa, Ikechukwu Anyene, told the News Agency of Nigeria.
According to the report culled by the Leadership newspaper, the two Nigerians were killed on Friday July 29 in Johannesburg.
According to Anyene, the first victim, Gideon Ogalaonye, was reportedly shot dead around 7 p.m. while on a visit to his daughters’ residence in the city.
Anyene explained that the second victim, Nnamdi Michael, was stabbed to death by a Zimbabwean national at Yeoville at 8 p.m on the same day during a robbery gone awry.
Anyene said the assailant first demanded money from Michael, which was not given and later attempted to forcefully remove his phone. He said the attacker then stabbed Michael.
Other Nigerians at the scene reportedly chased the Zimbabwean attacker and arrested him.
“The Zimbabwean has been handed over to the police and we will follow the case.
“The two incidents have been reported to the Nigerian mission in South Africa and the South African police.
“The Nigerian community in South Africa are not happy with the killings.
“We urge the Federal government to persuade its South African counterpart to investigate and prosecute incidents of killings of Nigerians in that country.
“We are getting worried about these incessant killings and we want the culprits prosecuted.”
