FG Flickers As Another Nigerian Killed In South Africa



The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has condemned the further extrajudicial killings of Nigerians living in South Africa.
This is contained in a statement by her Special Assistant on Media, Abdurrahman Balogun, released on Saturday in Abuja.
Mrs. Dabiri-Erewa said the killing of Kingsley Ikeri, another member of the Nigerian Union in that country, at Vryheid town in Kwazulu Natal Province of South Africa on August 30, was one death too many.
Mr. Ikeri, 27, was a businessman and native of Mbaitolu in Imo State. He is the second Imo indigene to be  killed in the last two weeks.
An extrajudicial killing, also known as extrajudicial execution, is the killing of a person by governmental authorities without the sanction of any judicial proceeding or legal process.
She said in spite of all diplomatic talks between Nigeria and South Africa to put an early warning signal in place, “it doesn’t seem to be working”.
Mrs. Dabiri-Erewa described the latest extrajudicial killing as “worrying and condemnable”.
She said that the latest gruesome killing of Ikeri by the police in South Africa, is “unacceptable to the people and government of Nigeria.”

Dabiri-Erewa urged the South African government to ensure that justice prevails by carrying out investigation and bring the culprit to book.
