Tears as South Africa Policemen Strangle Nigerian Man to Death


 
A Nigerian man has lost his life in shocking manner after he was reportedly killed by policemen in South Africa. 
“Three policemen accosted Eloh, one of them, by the name Williams, held him on the neck suspecting that he swallowed a substance, while another police officer held him by the legs,’’ he said.
 
The union official alleged that the policemen dragged Eloh on the ground until he started foaming and suffocated to death on the spot.
 
“This is not the first time such senseless killing of innocent Nigerians was carried out by South African police officers.

“We have reported similar killings to the South African Government and Nigeria High Commission in South Africa and nothing was done to bring the culprits to book.

“We want the Nigerian Government to intervene to stop this brutality against innocent Nigerians and stop killing Nigerians out of hatred, racism or xenophobia,’’ he said.
 
Ikechukwu Anyene, President of Nigerian Union in South Africa, who also confirmed the incident, called for an end to the incessant killing of Nigerians in South Africa.
 
He said that the union had engaged a lawyer to take up the case against South African Police Service. The union said that the police have opened an inquest into the case.
