Ohanaeze Ndigbo Demands Justice for Gruesome Murder Of Nigerian Man In South Africa Over P*rn Videos
Following the gruesome murder of a 30-year-old Nigerian man identified as Mendis Uzodimma, in his shop in Rosettenville, Southern Johannesburg due to the release of some p*rn videos, members of the Ohanaeze Ndigbo group in South Africa are calling for the perpetrators to be brought to book.
A statement signed and released by the group's Deputy Secretary-General, Tochukwu Ngwoke, stated that Ohanaeze received the news of Uzodimma’s gruesome murder on May 13 and urged the South African government to ensure that justice is served.
The statement in part reads;
“On May 13, 2021, the leadership of ONSA received a distress call from our people (Igbo people) in Rosettenville, Southern Johannesburg, informing us about the gruesome murder of a young, energetic, and vibrant Igbo son, Mr Mendis Uzodimma.
The deceased, a 30-year-old young man, owned a phone shop on Main Street, Rosettenville, and hailed from Ohaji Egbema in Imo.
A witness who spoke to us at the court premises said Mendis was stabbed several times by a South African woman and her husband from Zimbabwe, whose daughter sold a phone to Uzodimma.
Apparently, the daughter of the woman, who is alleged to be an online porn artiste, sold her phone to our brother, who in turn sold it to another person who saw the porn movies where the girl featured and started circulating them,” he revealed.
When the girl got it, she thought it was the person she sold the phone to who circulated it not knowing that he was not the one as he had sold off the phone.
So, it was out of fury that the lady, her mother, and her mother’s husband stormed Mendis’s shop. Without hearing from him, the mother started stabbing him until he slumped and died.”
Ngwoke added that two witnesses had already testified to ensure that justice is served.
