God­win Adama

The Con­sul Gen­er­al of Nige­ria in South Africa, God­win Adama, has con­demned the alleged killing of a Niger­ian, Linus Chibu­zor-Nwankwo from Enugu State by a fel­low Niger­ian, Lawrence Nwari­enne from Anam­bra, in that coun­try.

Adama, in a state­ment made avail­able to the News Agency of Nige­ria (NAN) yes­ter­day in Abu­ja, expressed shock over the incident.He said 42-year-old Chibu­zor-Nwankwo was shot by Nwari­enne, anoth­er Niger­ian oper­at­ing a bar in South Africa in the ear­ly hours of Fri­day at Kemp­ton Park, Johan­nes­burg.

The envoy said Nwari­enne shot the deceased right at his bar for rea­sons not very clear. He said the police imme­di­ate­ly arrest­ed the sus­pect and launched an inves­ti­ga­tion into the case. “The High Com­mis­sion­er and the Con­sul Gen­er­al are very con­cerned on this devel­op­ment. We con­demn this das­tard­ly act and do not expect it from our nation­als who are sup­posed to pro­tect each oth­er.

This is a devel­op­ment that is becom­ing fright­en­ing and may make the South African police author­i­ties to blame oth­er future killings on the same trend. We are tak­ing it seri­ous­ly,” he said.He said that the Mis­sion is in touch with Nige­ri­ans and police author­i­ties and encour­aged them to prop­er­ly inves­ti­gate the mur­der and pros­e­cute accord­ing­ly.

Accord­ing to him, “We are mon­i­tor­ing the devel­op­ment and encour­ag­ing Nige­ri­ans to con­duct them­selves peace­ful­ly while we seek for jus­tice. “Mis­sion has been in touch with Nige­ri­ans on the unfor­tu­nate devel­op­ment and Mis­sion has already com­menced dis­cus­sions with Niger­ian stake­hold­ers to dis­cour­age this trend.”
