ANOTHER NIGERIAN STABS FELLOW COUNTRYMAN TO DEATH IN ROODEPOORT, SOUTH AFRICA

Nigerian community in South Africa has condemned the killing of another 28-year-old Nigerian, Okolie Olileanyi Paul, from Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State by a fellow Nigerian in that country.

National Publicity Secretary of Nigeria Union South Africa, NUSA, Chief Iyke Odefa, who disclosed this in a statement, yesterday, said the deceased was allegedly stabbed to death by a fellow Nigerian and a housemate, Mr Donald Mordi, from Ika North-East Local Government Area, Delta State. Odefa said: “He was stabbed during an argument that resulted in physical combat. The sad event took place in Roodepoort, West Rand on the 17th August in the wee hours when an argument ensued between the duo.

This resulted in a fight and the assailant stabbed the deceased to death with several deep cuts. “Mordi has been on the run since the gruesome murder. The police have been informed, thus, a case file has since been opened. “The legal desk of Nigerian Union South Africa, NUSA, is already on the case. We appeal to law enforcement agencies to leave no stone unturned until the culprit is apprehended and brought to justice. We convey our sincere condolences to the deceased’s family.”

It would be recalled that a 42-year-old Nigerian, Chibuzor-Nwankwo, was shot by Lawrence Nwarienne, another Nigerian operating a bar in South Africa, in the early hours of July 27 in Kempton Park, Johannesburg. Nwarienne was reported to have shot the deceased in his bar for reasons not yet known. The suspect was, however, immediately arrested by the police who launched an investigation into the case.
