A Nigerian man identified as Ebuka Udugbo has been allegedly killed by the South African police. This is according to a report by the president, Nigerian Citizens Association South Africa (NICASA), Ben Okoli, who made the confirmation of the unfortunate incident.
Okoli, in a letter to the Consul General, Nigerian Consulate in South Africa, explained that the late Ebuka Udugbo on April 28 had a disagreement with one Miss Linda, who was his girlfriend and was subsequently arrested by South African Police.
He was later reported dead in their custody.
He said: “The information we got initially was that he committed suic*de while in the South African Police custody in Cape Town. We conducted our own preliminary investigation over the circumstances surrounding his death.
“What we discovered was really shocking and disheartening from our findings. “The late Udugbo had a quarrel with his girlfriend and left the house at about 9 a.m on April 28 to avoid further altercation with his girlfriend.”
According to him, the deceased was arrested by the Police in town and taken to his house where he was severely beaten before being taken to their station.
“The police took his car keys, left the car by the way and drove with him back to his house in the Police car along with the girlfriend. He was severely beaten by the cops in his house and he fainted. At this point the landlord’s son feared and told the police to take him to the hospital.
“The police refused, and instead they took him to the police station where they claimed that he had allegedly killed himself.”
“We do not accept this police story, we believed that he was killed right in the police station and hanged afterwards. His case was that of domestic violence, and does not warrant the police to beat him since he did not in any way resist arrest.”
