This time, the two murdered Nigerians, Gideon Ogalaonye and Michael Nnamdi, were said to have been killed by some South African and Zimbabwean criminals after robbing them of their possessions.

According to the President General of the Nigerian Union in that country, Ikechukwu Anyene, Ogalaonye, who hails from Onitsha, Anambra State, was shot dead while on a visit to the home of his daughters, while Nnamdi, an indigene of Enugu State, was stabbed to death by bandits who wanted to steal his mobile phone.
