The Nigerian Union in South Africa (NUSA) reports that a Nigerian entrepreneur was killed in the country because of an alleged business dispute with a customer.
Sylvester Okonkwo, deputy chairman of NUSA in Kwazulu Natal province, said Ikenna Otugo, the deceased, was killed on Tuesday in Empangeni province.
In a telephone conversation on Wednesday, Okonkwo said that the 41-year-old Nimo was stabbed to death by unknown assailants in the administrative district of Njikoka in the state of Anambra.
He said Otugo had repaired a mobile phone for a client in the area, but that she was not satisfied with the deceased’s work.
According to the deputy chairman, the customer brought some men with him who allegedly stabbed the victim.
“Otugo died on the way to the hospital after the stabbing. We reported the incident to the police and the national secretariat of our union NUSA,” he said.
“His (Otugos) body is now in the morgue waiting for the autopsy.”
Okonkwo said that the deceased was survived by a nine-year-old son.
Adetola Olubajo, President of NUSA, confirmed the incident and explained that the national secretariat had been informed.
This latest attack came after President Muhammadu Buhari and his South African counterpart Cyril Ramaphosa met to end the attacks on Nigerians.
