PRESS RELEASE FROM NIGERIAN CONSULATE ON MR. IBRAHIM OLAMILEKAN BADMUS’ MURDER IN VANDERBIJLPARK, SOUTH AFRICA

Office of the Consul General

The Consulate General of Nigeria in South Africa has received the report of the unfortunate incident in Vanderbijlpark,Vereeniging, South Africa, on the 10th October 2017 during which a 25-year-old Nigerian citizen, Mr. Ibrahim Olamilekan Badmus, lost his life, allegedly during interrogation by a group of policemen who visited his residence at Deforest Street.

A team from the Nigerian Consulate General, led by the Consul-General H.E. Godwin Adama immediately visited the scene to interface with the Nigerian citizens, with the hope of de-escalating tension, to allow the law enforcement agents to investigate the incident. And we hope that justice is done, as this is one death too many.

We do have confidence in the Independent Police Investigate Directorate (IPID), which has obtained witness statements on the matter for further investigation. While we await autopsy report and seek to resolve this sad incident, we once again, appeal to our nationals to remain calm and avoid any further face-off with the police.
