An innocent Nigeria man has been mobbed to death after he was attacked by some South Africans, who falsely accused him of Kidnapping a child.
One Mr. Samuel Nkennaya, a 34 years old man was mobbed to death after he and his friend Chinonso Nwudo, who is reportedly in a critical condition in hospital were attacked. The pair were accused of Kidnapping a 6 years old girl, Chinonye, who unknown to the attackers, was Nwudo’s daughter.
According to reports, the incident which occurred on the evening of Saturday began after Nwudo took his daughter to visit his friend, Nkennaya, at White River, Mpumalanga, South Africa.
The pair later proceeded to buy food for the little girl at the KFC eatery, which is situated in the same area where Nkennaya lives. Sadly, after they had bought the food, the bystanders at the eatery raised an alarm alleging that the duo had kidnapped the girl.
The friends were immediately mobbed by the people around who did not bother ask questions about the situation.
While being attacked, Nwudo kept shouting that the child was his daughter but his attackers did believe him. He begged that they ask his South African wife about it in order to confirm that he was telling the truth which saved it life.
Hitvibz gathered that the police later intervened and called for backup, but Nkennaya died on his way to the hospital and Nwudo is left in critical health conditions.
With the plight of Africans and especially Nigerians in SA, we would never know the number of such attacks on foreigners and innocent victims who fall in the hands of these jungle mobs.
with Police arrest records being dismal at best, any arrest in connection with this senseless attack is more than likely no one will be arrested.
Hitvibz will continue to follow this story and bring you updates as the case progresses.
