Share This

A 30-year-old Nigerian man, Stanley Igwe, has been killed by South African policemen in the Kwazulu-Natal region of the country.

It was gathered that the deceased, who hailed from Amandugba Village, in Isu LGA of Imo State, was living alone in the area when the unfortunate incident occurred. 

According to the President-General of Nigerian Citizens’ Association in South Africa (NICASA), Mr Ben Okoli, some Nigerians, who witnessed Igwe’s arrest, testified that an unmarked black Golf car, occupied by some men in mufti, stormed Bosco parking lot behind a popular meat buy and braai, where they accosted him.

“Out of fear and not recognizing the men as Police officers, but as robbers, Igwe ran to a nearby shopping arcade near Spar-supermarket; the men pursued him into the arcade where they got him in front of a shop known as ‘Power’.

They punched and kicked him out from the arcade and when the deceased queried why he was being attacked he was further punched and kicked into the police van.

The incident happened at about 11 a.m and it was alleged that the police drove him around for several hours and in between they stopped and took turns to beat Igwe and throw him back into the van.

When they realised that he was dead in their custody, they drove him to the Newcastle police station at about 1 p.m and reported that he had ingested some substance, which had killed him.

This development angered the Nigerian community who believed it was obviously a murder case and angrily went to the police station to demand that Igwe’s killers be brought to book,” he said.
