The Nigerian community in South Africa has alleged that a 27-year old man, Ebuka Okori, was killed by the police in Durban in the early hours of Friday 19th January, 2018. According to Mr Bartholomew Eziagulu, the Chairman of the Nigerian Union chapter in Kwazulu Natal Province of South Africa, the victim was a native of Umunze in Orumba North Local Government of Anambra.
He said that an eyewitness informed the union that two police officers in mufti forcefully gained access to the victim`s house at Campbell Street in Durban at 2.am on Friday.  According to him, the officers immediately demanded money from Okori
When he refused, he was handcuffed, taken outside and shot dead. The officers took away his cell phone, e-passport and other valuable documents. The relative of the victim was tortured and robbed of his belongings while a third victim, a South African, was also robbed,” he said.
Eziagulu said that the Okori`s brother escaped from the house and called for help. “The Metro Police around the vicinity swiftly intervened and picked the vehicle number of the assailants,” he said.
Eziagulu said that police detectives and another special police team which investigates complaints against their colleagues had been assisting to arrest the culprits.
