Pius who ran a chain of bed and breakfast guest houses, was picked up by eight police officers at a Nigerian eatery last weekend and was forcefully taken to his home for a search and interrogation.

The South African police officers allegedly shot Pius dead after an argument between them degenerated so fast leading to gun shot fired. He was allegedly killed in the presence of his family.

Pius was married to a South African who was present at the scene of the incident. He reportedly asked the policemen to kill him in his house as he would not follow them to where they wanted to take him to.

All phones were seized except that of Pius’ sister in-law who recorded his altercation with the police.

Confirming the incident, the Nigerian Ambassador to South Africa, Godwin Adama, said a formal report has been launched to the South African police on the incident.

An autopsy is said to have been carried out but the result has not been released.

The police officers accused of the killing are yet to be arrested or interrogated.
