Following a horrific attack on foreigners by criminals, the Nigeria Union South Africa (NUSA) confirmed the death of another Nigerian, Nicholas John, in South Africa on Thursday.
Mr. Collins Mgbo, the President of NUSA, disclosed John’s death in a statement to NAN on Thursday.
On February 12, a mob allegedly attacked John, an Ogun State native, at his shop in Kimberly, Northern Cape, South Africa.
Many young Nigerians who immigrated to South Africa to find work have continued to perish.
According to NAN, at least 128 Nigerians have been slain in the erstwhile Rainbow Nation since the beginning of 2019.
On December 12, 2021, a man named Olusola Solarin died after hoodlums attacked him and stole his money.
Mgbo revealed that John’s South African wife had just been married for three months.
On the circumstances surrounding Nicholas’ death on Tuesday, the NUSA president stated that a South African gang assaulted him on February 11 for allegedly purchasing a stolen laptop.
