Nigeria Union in South Africa has condemned the killing of a Nigerian woman who lived in the former apartheid enclave with her family by unknown gunmen.
34-year-old housewife, and mother-of-four, Mrs. Christiana Onyeka(pictured), was killed on Friday, December 3, 2015, in her husband`s office in Midrand, near Johannesburg.
The deceased hailed from Ozubulu in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of Anambra State.
Mr Ikechukwu Ayene, president of the union, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Midrand, South Africa, on Saturday that it had reported the incident to the South African police and Nigerian mission.
“The unjust killing of Nigerians in South Africa is becoming alarming.
“We are worried that after reporting such killings to the police, we do not get the desired results. Most cases of Nigerian victims of murder are either abandoned or inconclusive,” he said.
Mrs. Uzor Ekesi, the President, Nigerian Women Association, South Africa, decried the killing of Onyeka.
“The killing came to us as a big shock. We are scared and confused because women are now being killed. Nigerians, especially women, condemn this act and call for urgent action to stop further killings,” she said.
