Nigerian Landlord Killed By Tenants In Joburg South Africa While Attempting To Collect Rent, Another Shot Dead In His House

Two Nigerians From Abia State Killed In South Africa

Two innocent Nigerians have by murdered in South Africa as the death toll of Nigerians killed in SA continued to climb.

According to the NAN, the latest killings  bring the number of Nigerians killed in the former apartheid enclave since February, 2016 to 118.

Up to 800,000 Nigerians, mostly young people, reside in South Africa, according to unofficial estimates.

Publicity Secretary of the Nigeria Union in South Africa Mr. Habib Miller told NAN in a telephone interview that two additional Nigerians were killed in South Africa in the past eight days.

Miller, who spoke from Pretoria, South Africa, identified the latest victims as Francis Ochuba, a native of Ngodo community in the Umnneochi Local Government Area of Abia State.

He named the other victim as Chidi Ibebuike, a native of Uturu in the Isikwuato Local Government Area also in Abia State.

“Ochuba, a property owner, was shot dead alongside his estate agent, a female South African on May 5. They were shot dead as they visited the tenant occupying Ochuba’s house to collect rent.

“The incident occurred in Central Johannesburg and Ibebuike was shot dead at the entrance to his house at Hazyview in Mpumalanga on May 13.

“Ibebuike’s car was subsequently, snatched by yet-to-be identified gunmen.

“Nigeria Union Chairman in Mpumalanga Province Mr. Amadi and other compatriots have reported the incident to the South African police authorities and investigation is underway.”

Miller said the latest killings came on the heels of the murder of ThankGod Okoro, a native of Ogbaku in the Agwu Local Government Area of Enugu State on April 9 and that of Clement Nwaogu, a native of Njikoka in Anambra State on April 22.

He noted that Okoro was reportedly shot dead by a member of the South African Police Flying Squad at Florida in Johannesburg. Nwaogu was burnt alive by a mob in Rustenburg in the North West Province.

The spokesman said a violent group in Rustenburg had earlier given Nigerians notice to vacate the area or get killed.

He said since the order was issued, there had been numerous cases of Nigerians being kidnapped with ransom paid to their abductors.

“The incessant looting and killings in the area, prompted 14 Nigerians to protest the injustice and the lack of police protection from the South African Police.

“The 14 Nigerians were attested and had been detained since January 21 in Rustenburg.

“The extra-judicial killing of Nigerians in South Africa is, however, a stark contrast to the general goodwill and protection South Africans and their businesses enjoy in Nigeria.

“There has been no record of looting of South African businesses in Nigeria.

“While South African companies transfer billions of dollars in profit made from doing business in Nigeria, Nigerians in South Africa are sending body bags of murdered breadwinners back home to Nigeria to dejected families,” Miller said. [NAN]

  1. If they like let them stay there and continue being killed like chicken.
    D simple message here is we don’t like u.
    Can’t u people find other countries to go?

    • No the simple message is: “… do your worst…”
      What about reprisal attacks on South Africans and all of their businesses in Nigeria? Reprisals have the power to stop evil most times, you know

    • The simple message is that the black race especially the ones on African soil is a lost race. You roll ot the red carpets for the Chinese who hate the very breath you breathe and look forward to be your next colonial masters while you kill the ones with whom you should be a formidable force against colonial terrorism. The black race, by their actions and inactions is truly the descendant of Ham, the son whom Noah cursed. Even the curse has denied you the ability to think right.

      • I’m not cursed in Jesus’ name, but you ****** not me.
        That moment Jesus was hanged on the cross, He took all MY curses upon Himself cos I was bought with a Price. The Bible says, “… cursed is anyone that hangs on a tree…” to reiterate MY freedom and kingship.
        Note that I write MY… it can never be yours, if you keep wallowing in your erroneous belief that you’re from Ham and cursed.
        I am not from the tribe of Ham, but from the tribe of Judah.
        Therefore all curses and negative words you said, say, and will say to me are***** in Jesus name, amen

  2. Reprisal attacks do not work because you are not killing South Africans rather you are simply shutting down businesses that employ your fellow Nigerians. If an area is not safe for you leave there!!!

    • I tell you, if those businesses shut down, it won’t make much difference in the lives of Nigerians and life would definitely go on. And you know what, nigerian alternatives will spring up and boom cos necessity is the mother of invention. But reprisals have the power to bring a stop to this madness. Remember… The kingdom of God suffers violence, and only the violent can take it.
      Plus, you don’t merely ask people to leave where they’ve lived in legally for years while your own people comfortably live in those people’s land. Who does that? If bilateral solutions, involving both countries, can’t be found, I’m afraid reprisals on South African and businesses in Nigeria will send a strong message home, ok
