A Nigerian simply identified as Batista, has killed his cousin, Ide, during a fisticuff over a business transaction in South Africa.

A statement by the President Nigeria Citizens Association South Africa, NICASA, Mr. Ben Okoli, said the incident happened in Kempton Park Monday night at 7:30 pm.

The statement reads: “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.”

There is tension among top government officials in Kebbi state over the health status of Governor Atiku Bagudu after he came in contact with the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari who had been tested positive to the virus.

Governor Bagudu held a series of meetings at the Presidential Villa last week where he was alleged to have come in contact with the Chief of Staff.

It was also observed that the governor had allegedly gone into self-isolation in his private home in Birnin kebbi, a day after it was confirmed that COS Abba Khari was tested positive to Covid-19.

Governor Bagudu since his return from Abuja a few days ago held an emergency meeting with various stakeholders in the state including the Emir of Gwandu, Emir of Argungu, Speaker of the State House of Assembly, SSG, Commissioners, special advisers, permanent secretaries, directors, and chairmen of local governments in the state, to chart the best course of action for the financial future of the state, and also ways to curtail the spread of the coronavirus, that was the last public appearance of the Governor.

Meanwhile, he has since directed that civil servants in the state stay at home for two weeks except for the conventional workers.

This development, our correspondent gathered has generated a lot of anxiety in the state, especially among top government functionaries and other critical stakeholders who have come in contact with the governor.

When our correspondent contacted the Special Adviser on Media to the Governor, Mallam.Yahaya Sirki to Know whether the governors is on self-isolation to prevent further spreading? he stated: that “the governor is not on self-isolation.

The directive to stay at home does not involve the media and the security and those on essential services. What actually happened in Govt House yesterday is just to reduce the number of people entering the government house including the media and security they were asked to go home until when needed. But even at this point, some journalist and security are still retained in Govt House. I repeat my Governor is not on self-isolation” he added.
