THE NIGERIA CONSULATE IN JOHANNESBURG DEMANDS JUSTICE FOR THE DEATH OZUMBA TOCHUKWU LAWRENCE

The Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in South Africa received with pain, the unfortunate news of the assassination of a Nigerian by yet to be identified assailant.

The ugly incident was said to have occurred at 10 Koppe, Middelburg, Mpumalanga, South Africa on the 6th July 2018. An eyewitness account has it that an unknown man made a way into the compound of Mr. Ozumba Tochukwu Lawrence and requested to see him. On being told about his guest, he came out to meet him, and the man opened fire on him and shot him six (6) times, resulting in his death before he reached the hospital. It is yet to be established the reason behind the sad incident.

This is very unfortunate and condemnable. The consulate hereby commiserates with the deceased family and indeed, the entire Nigerian community in South Africa. The consulate calls on the South African relevant authorities to unravel the mystery behind this dastardly act. Efforts should be made by the Police and other relevant agencies to apprehend the assailant and bring him to justice. We also call on our nationals to cooperate with the police and judicial officers in their investigation and prosecution.

The Nigerian Consulate will continue to advance the welfare and security of Nigerians in South Africa. We, therefore, call on all our nationals to remain calm and eschew violence, as we seek to obtain justice for the deceased and members of his family
