In her words:

“I called my husband-to-be on Monday (22.06.2015) around 8pm, and he did not pick. I was still trying till 10pm. I called again around 10:30pm, and one of his phones was switched off. I said okay maybe he was busy and would call me back. In the morning I tried again and the two phones were now off. I was worried because he does not behave like that unless when the police arrest him because of documents. …
… “On Thursday I went to Landesgericht (regional court) to find out if he was there, and if I could see him.

They told me that he had been there but that they had already released him, and that he was out. That means he was not dead, so I went home and was waiting for him to come home. I tried to call him and his phones were still off. I waited and he did not come home. On Friday I went to the police station in Rudolfstiftung in 3rd district. I told them there that I was looking for my boyfriend, since Monday his phones had been off, and he had never come home and that I was worried about him too much. They asked me what kind of relationship that was if I did not know where my boyfriend was since Monday. I told them that, how would I know if I had not heard from him and had been looking for him. I told them that I had got a letter from the ambulance that they had taken him to hospital on Tuesday morning around 4am. They told me to wait.

“They made calls and called me in after about 30 minutes. They asked me to sit down and call my mother. They told me that my boyfriend had stopped breathing and had died on Tuesday, and would not tell me exactly when he had died on Tuesday, but that he was dead.
“Today (29.06.2015) we went to see his dead body and to know what had happened to him. I saw that he had a fresh open wound on his left eye, and his mouth was “swollen up. Somewhere around his neck was also open, and I don’t know what that could be. It looked like he was sleeping.

“I would like him to be buried in Nigeria because his biggest was to see his mother, his father and his family. He has not seen them for almost seven years. He said if we get married, and he gets his documents we would go to Nigeria to see them. So I know that his mother would like him to be in Nigeria. I want him to meet his family and be with his family. I will miss him here, but I will like him to be with his family, as he would wish it,” she sadly said with tears.

May his soul rest in peace.

    I am a Nigerian in diaspora and i don’t agree with this article that this guy was killed just because of staying in the country illegally.Police can’t kill you at all for overstaying instead they deport you and you remain in the deportation camp for a while,the real truth of the story was kidden,this could be a drug related case,Germany,Austria etc are havens of our druggie brothers..when we see them we know them.Period!!

      BOBO you will not understand it. it is possible the police killed him on the process of beating him up and finally he collapsed and died. am sure the never thought of killing him. and l also heard the want to bury the guy within two days after his died without letting the autopsy come out. thank God the Embassy has come into it. Austrian police are racist believe it or you live it.

    race is all over the world, In stead of him to be deported by the police rather he was killed because he is black. but they cant touch usa citizen, or any european citizen.GOD shall surely purnish them.
