Lagos, Feb. 17, 2022: The Nigeria Union South Africa (NUSA) has announced the death of an ebullient Nigerian as a result of last week’s attack on foreigners by gangsters.
The union’s President, Mr Collins Mgbo, said on Thursday in a statement from Pretoria that the deceased, Nicholas John, an indigene of Ogun State, buys and sells cars in Kimberly, Northern Cape.
Mgbo also disclosed that his South African-born wife gave birth three months ago.
On the circumstances that led to Nicholas’ death on Tuesday, the NUSA president said that on Feb. 11, he was attacked by a South African gang for allegedly buying a stolen laptop.
He was beaten alongside his friends who they believed was an accomplice, while the South African criminal who stole the laptop and sold it to Nicholas was left unharmed.
The NUSA president said Nicholas was now battling for his life in the Intensive Care Unit at Kimberley Hospital where he died.
He explained that Nicholas had bought a stolen laptop from another South African, so, the owner of the laptop apprehended the South African who stole the laptop and he took them to the Nigerian who bought it.
The Nigerian who bought it had apparently sold it to another Nigerian. They asked him to call the Nigerian he sold it to and he did, but when he arrived, he told them that he didn’t have the laptop anymore but agreed to pay them for it.
The owner of the laptop agreed but the owner came with a group which wanted to rob him of his phones and he refused, and that’s when they beat him to a comatose state where he was left to die.
Other Nigerians at the scene called an ambulance and took him to the hospital but they were informed by the medical doctor at the hospital that his brain was damaged and he might not make it.
