He said a fact-finding team to the scene led by him and National Welfare Officer, Trust Owoyele, met a witness, Sipususo Mkalipi, a South African taxi driver, who confirmed the killing.

“The deceased and the son of the caretaker of a parking lot had an argument over an unpaid R300 (N11,400) rent.
“The witness said that the deceased decided to leave his car in the parking lot till Monday because he had no money to pay, but the caretaker’s son shot him on his way out of the building.

The Nigeria Union President also said the incident had been reported to the Nigerian Mission in South Africa.
“We implore the mission to give necessary support to the union in order to ensure that justice is served.

“Omoyele is survived by a pregnant wife also in South Africa and his parents in Nigeria,” he said.
