A Nigerian man who was reportedly burnt to death in South Africa, is set to be buried on Friday in Anambra State.
31-year-old Nigerian man, Clement Chukwuebuka Nwosu, who was murdered in Rustenberg, South Africa will be laid to rest on Friday, 25th May 2018.
Late Chukwuebuka will be buried in his hometown, Uruokwe village, Enugwu-Ukwu, Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra State.
According to reports, Late Chukwuebuka was attacked by a mob of South Africans who perceived his intonation as that of a Nigerian and descended on him with all sorts of dangerous weapons.
Eyewitnesses said while Late Chukwuebuka was being attacked, he beckoned on the South African policemen to intervene and save him from the torture but the police turned a blind eye while he was abused horribly.
When he could no longer persevere, he ran for his life but they chased him and when they caught up with him, they continued their assault on him. Not satisfied with the beating, they went ahead to pour gasoline on him and set him ablaze.
The mob thought he was dead and ceased fire, but some eye witnesses who felt he was still alive called on emergency personnels who took Mr Ebuka to the hospital. Unfortunately, he did not survive the nightmare; he died at Job Shimankane Hospital in Rustenburg.
He is survived by the South African wife and two children.
