In what is seen as a renewed xenophobic attack, a young Nigerian man has been murdered in South Africa by hoodlums suspected to be from Congo and Tanzania following a misunderstanding.
This much was made known by the late man’s friend, Astyrius Chidozie, who took to his Facebook page to narrate the circumstances that led to the killing of the guy.
Read what he wrote:
“Three Congolese and Tanzanian nationals stabbed and killed a Nigerian national in Cape Town on the 27th of March, being Easter Sunday, over a misunderstanding.
He’s originally from Oba in Idemili Local Government of Anambra State. Currently they are on the run. Police are everywhere searching for them.
On behalf of Nigerian community in Western Cape, South Africa, pls keep sharing this post for everyone to see and know the monsters who took away the life of our brother and anyone who come in contact with them should report to the nearest police station for justice to take its course.”
May his soul rest in peace.
