If you are a regular user of social media, you must have seen a video that was circulated on the media yesterday showing the moment a huge guy was killed in a fight with another guy.
The identity of the two guys has been confirmed. The duo are Nigerians and they hail from Imo State State Nigeria. They reside around Kempton Park in South Africa where the ugly incident happened on Monday the 10th of February.
Batista and Ide are close relatives and they both reside in South Africa where they work. However, things got dirty between them after a business transaction was foiled which got the two Nigerian men angry with one another. However, things got dirtier after they resorted to settling themselves physical fight which resulted in Batista hitting the head of Ide with a heavy brick.
In the video, Ide who was putting on a white singlet went to the ground immediately he was hit with a brick on the head. Reports revealed that he was rushed to the hospital for resuscitation, however, he was pronounced dead shortly after he was brought in.
See video below:
Reasonably, the suspect, Batista has been arrested by the Police for alledgely committing muder.
The news has been confirmed by the President of Nigeria Citizens Association South Africa, NICASA, Ben Okoli. In a statement that was released by Okoli, he lamented on how Nigerians no longer place value on human lives.
Read his statement below:
NICASA has received information from our ward leader in Kempton Park, where two Nigerians engaged in a fight that led to the death of one of them. The two Nigerians are related, from Orlu Senatorial zone of Imo State.
Our preliminary investigation revealed that the two Nigerians, one known as Batista and the other as Ide, got into fisticuffs apparently over disagreements on some money to be paid to some creditor. Batista, who was the senior of the two relatives hit the younger Ide with a brick on his head and pushed him to the ground. Ide fell to the ground hitting his medulla on the ground. He was rushed to Arwyp Hospital, Kempton Park, South Africa, where he died shortly after he was admitted.
We are concerned about this unnecessary and avoidable death. It is disheartening that our citizens no longer have value for the sanctity of life nor the preferred conflict resolution mechanism available in our established associations, clubs and town unions. We advise our citizens to be law-abiding and be our brother’s keeper. NICASA will visit the suspect in the police custody tomorrow and will make more information available after the visit.”
