Xenophobia: Nigerian Teenager Shot Dead In South Africa

The President of Nigerian Union in South Africa, Mr. Adetola Olubajo, has confirmed the killing of one Chinonso Dennis Obiaju, 17, who was shot d**d in Johannesburg, on Saturday.

Olubajo told NAN on telephone that his guardian, Mr. Mike Nsofor, disclosed that he was shot at about 6:30 pm.

“He went to buy from a shop with his friend and someone chased and opened fire on them, killing him,” the guardian was quoted as saying.

He added that the family would be burying him in South Africa, noting that the union’s leaders in Johannesburg would be contacting him on developments.

Olubajo said they were going to the Police on Monday to finalize on the registry and provision of his papers.

“He was born here I learnt and the Mother is in the U.S.”

“I have spoken to Mike Nsofor to pass the Nigerian community’s condolences and call for justice to be served in this case as anybody who hunt down a young schoolboy couldn’t have any justifiable reasons,’’ Olubajo said.

He implored the Federal Government to urgently protect Nigerians in the Diaspora.

NAN reports that no fewer than 200 Nigerians have been killed in xenophobic attacks between 2016 and this year.
