Another Nigerian stabbed to death in South Africa

President, Nigerian Citizens Association South Africa, Ben Okoli, says a Nigerian, Mr Okechukwu Henry, from Imo State, was stabbed to death by unidentified South African robbers.

The NICASA president said this in a letter to the Consul-General, Nigerian Consulate Johannesburg, South Africa.

A copy of the letter was obtained by the News Agency of Nigeria on Saturday in Abuja.

Okoli said the association was tired of sending Nigerians back home in body bags due to a premeditated and organised crime against them in South Africa.

Okoli said, “Tragedy has struck the Nigerian community again, just after 4pm on Friday, May 3. Mr Okechukwu Henry was stabbed to death by unknown local South African robbers.

”The late Henry, a car dealer who specialised in used cars, lived in Middleburg Mpumalanga Province. Earlier before his death, some two local guys had indicated interest to buy his car – a white VW Polo.

”They had negotiated the price and agreed to buy; late Henry had produced all necessary documents to seal the deal when suddenly the local buyers said they wanted to test-drive the car first before paying.”

He added that Henry obliged them but insisted he would drive along with them.

”As they drove out, he suddenly realised that they were robbers as they demanded the key of the car.

”They attacked him and stabbed him several times; they took the keys but could not manage to drive away from the car.

“Their action attracted the attention of people around and they ran away with the keys without the car,” he said.

According to him, Henry was rushed to the hospital, but it appeared he had died at the scene.
