More and more Nigerians have continued to lose their lives in South Africa as another 28-year-old has fallen victim.The Nigerian community in South Africa has condemned the killing of 28-year-old Okolie Olileanyi Paul from Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State by a fellow Nigerian in that country.

The Nigeria Union, South Africa, made the condemnation in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Chief Iyke Odefa, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Wednesday.

Odefa stated that the deceased was allegedly stabbed to death by a fellow Nigerian and housemate, Mr Donald Mordi from Ika Northeast Local Government Area of Delta State.

“He was stabbed during an argument that resulted into physical combat.

“The sad event took place in Roodenport West Rand on Aug. 17 in the wee hours, when an argument ensued between the duo. Subsequently, a physical fight resulted and the assailant stabbed the deceased to death with several deep cuts.

“Mordi has been on the run since the gruesome murder. The police has been informed and a case file has since been opened.
