XENOPHOBIA



Despite effort by both Nigeria and South Africa to end Xenophobia in the Southern African country, the Nigerian community in South Africa has confirmed the killing of one of its members, Ikenna Innocent Otugo.

Mr Sylvester Okonkwo, Acting Chairman of Nigerian Union, South Africa (NUSA) in the Kwazulu Natal Province, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday that the deceased was killed at Empangeni, in the province on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

He said that Otugo, 41, and a native of Nimo in Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State, was allegedly stabbed to death by unknown assailants over a business disagreement.

Okonkwo told NAN on telephone from Empangeni that Otugo had repaired a cellphone for a client in the area.
