Clement Kalu, a 35-year-old Nigerian, has been reported dead at Springs Town near Johannesburg, barely one week after a Nigerian was killed in KwaZulu Natal province of South Africa.
Kalu is reported to have been tortured to death by the South African police.
The wife of late Kalu, who is a South African citizen, claimed that about 10 policemen arrested her husband from his shop on Tuesday on suspicion of being a drug dealer, an allegation she said her husband denied.
According to her, after searching their house, his store, and other places, and found nothing, the policemen allegedly tried to torture him into telling them where he kept the drugs.
They were said to have used cellophane bag to cover his face, leaving him to struggle for breath and was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital.
Meanwhile, President of the Nigeria Union in South Africa, Adetola Olubajo, has condemned the incident.
Olubajo said that the matter has been reported to the Nigerian Mission in the country.topics from
