The News Agency of Nigeria has reported a fresh killing of 2 Nigerians murdered in South Africa. This has made the death toll of Nigerians killed in South Africa risen to 118 since February 2016.

In the past eight days, two Nigerians have lost their dear lives in the hands of wicked South Africans. There names are Francis Achuba,a native of Ngodo community in Umnnochi Local Government Area of Abia state and Chidi Ibebuike who was a native of Uturu in Isikwuato Local Government Area of the same Abia state Nigeria.

According to the report,Achuba was a property owner who was shot dead alongside his estate agent as they both came to collect rent from his tenants.

“The incident occurred in Central Johannesburg and Ibebuike was shot dead at the entrance to his house at Hazyview in Mpumalanga on May 13.

It was reported by spokesman that prior to the killings of Nigerians in South Africa,violent group in Rustenburg had been warning Nigerians living in their country to vacate in their area or get killed but Nigerians gave deaf ears to the warning. As a result of that,it has been killings of  one Nigerian after another in different ways,some get kidnapped and forced to pay huge ransom for redemption and others burnt alive in South Africa.
