A Nigerian has killed a fellow from Awgu local government area in Enugu State in South Africa.
The 28-year-old Okolie Olileanyi Paul was allegedly stabbed to death by a fellow Nigerian and a housemate, Mr Donald Mordi from Ika Northeast local government area in Delta State.
National Publicity Secretary of Nigeria Union South Africa, NUSA, Chief Iyke Odefa, who stated this in a statement Thursday, said: ”He was stabbed during an argument that resulted in physical combat. The sad event took place in Roodenport West Rand on August 17 in the wee hours when an argument ensued between the duo.
‘’This resulted in a physical 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 has been informed, thus, a case file has since been opened.
”The legal desk of the Nigerian Union South Africa, NUSA, is already on the case. We appeal to the 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 family.”
Recall 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 right at his bar for reasons not very clear.
The suspect was, however, immediately arrested by the police who had launched investigation into the case.
