Man’s House Set Ablaze For Killing ‘Cousin’ In South Africa

A mob in Umuoru Etiti village, Ubulu Community in Orlu West Local Government Area of Imo State have burnt down the home of a South Africa-based businessman, Declan Nsofor, for allegedly killing Odenigbo Ife in South Africa.

The mob actions followed a viral video that showed Nsofor and Ife fighting in Kempton Park, South Africa in the presence of police officers when the former hit the latter on his head with a brick he found on the floor.

The victim dropped to the ground instantly and the police apprehended Nsofor as people, who were initially tried to separate their fight, attempted to attack him.

“Police went to intervene and during the intervention, one of the Nigerians picked up a brick and hit another Nigerian on the forehead and the victim fell down and was bleeding from the mouth and nose,” Gauteng police spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubela said.

“The suspect was immediately arrested for attempted murder. The victim was taken to Arwyp Hospital for medical treatment,” said Makhubela.

Odenigbo later died at the Arwyp Hospital on Tuesday.
