Nigerian Taxi Cab Driver Killed In New York – Stabbed To Death With An Umbrella

Just one week after the tragic death of a Nigerian taxi driver in DC, another disaster has happened and this time around, it’s in New York.

Mr Ama Orji is a 54-year-old man who hails from Ekoli Edda in Ebonyi State.

On the evening of Thursday the 13th of June, 2013, Mr Orji met his untimely death in the hands of 2 of his passengers.

A man allegedly used Umbrella to punch his eye which pierced through his brain.

He wasn’t shot or something, one of his passengers used Umbrella to repeatedly stab him in the eye.

This was carried out by one of the passengers who happened to be a man in his early 20s according to an eyewitness.

We learnt the murder case happened on Thomas South and Boyland Street in Brownsville.

It started with an argument.

Due to the injury he suffered, he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into 2 parked vehicles.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

The deceased relocated to the United States of America about 10 years ago.

After securing his stay, he sponsored his two daughters to live with him.

His wife is still back home in Aba, Abia State.

Police are still on the hunt for his killers.

People are so wicked… How can someone stab his fellow human being in the eye with an Umbrella.

Haba God have mercy o.

May God grant his family the fortitude to bear his loss.

May his soul rest in perfect peace.
