The Nigerian community in South Africa has again been thrown into mourning after gunmen killed one of its members and left two injured.

Mr Odefa Ikele, the National Spokesperson of Nigerian Union South Africa, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Monday in Lagos.

Ikele said the incident that led to the death of Mr Chikamso Ufordi, who hailed from Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State and injuries sustained by the two others happened around 7:00 p.m. on Saturday in Nigel.

 

Nigel is a small gold mining town in Gauteng Province, East Rand near Johannesburg.

“One of the witnesses informed us that the deceased, Mr Chikamso Ufordi, from Awgu LGA Enugu State was trailed by some unknown gunmen, and was shot at point-blank range while in his car with two other Nigerian friends.

“His friends also sustained injuries, but the late Chikamso died immediately before help could arrive from the province’s Emergency Medical Services team.

 

“The injured were rushed to the nearest hospital. A case of murder and attempted murder have already been opened at Nigel Police Cluster,’’ Ikele told NAN on telephone.

It will be recalled that three Nigerians were among other foreign nationals who were affected by fresh xenophobic attacks on foreigners in different locations in Witbank, Mpumanlaga Province, South Africa.

The attacks happened on October 22.

 

The October 22 attacks came on the heels of efforts by Presidents Muhammadu Buhari and Cyril Ramaphosa to find an amicable and lasting solution to xenophobia in the latter’s country.

Peace efforts saw Buhari visiting Ramaphosa and holding a town hall meeting with the Nigerian community in the country.
