South African Police Kill Another Nigerian

The Nigeria Union in South Africa has confirmed the killing 
of a member, Kingsley Ikeri, at Vryheid town in Kwazulu 
Natal Province on August 30.


Twenty seven year old Ikeri, is reported to be a 
businessman and native of Mbaitolu in Imo state, South-East 
Nigeria.


In December 2016, Metropolitan Police in Cape Town had 
suffocated to death a man named Victor Nnadi, also from 
Imo state.

Chairman of the union in the province, Bartholomew 
Eziagulu, told the News Agency of Nigeria in Durban that 
Ikeri was allegedly tortured to death by the police.

He said the union’s investigations revealed that the police 
arrested the deceased and a friend on suspicion that they 
were carrying hard drugs.

A total 116 Nigerians have been killed in South Africa through
 extrajudicial means in the last two years, according to the 
Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs 
and Diaspora, Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa.


Seven in 10 of the killings were said to be carried out by the 
South African Police.
