Group mourns as another Nigerian is murdered in South Africa

A Nigerian group in South Africa has mourned the death of a Nigerian identified as Olusola Solarin who was murdered in South Africa.

Reports say the late Solarin was killed by assailants on his way back from collecting money from his customers.

It is however worthy to note that Solarin death makes the number of Nigerians who has died since 2019 in South Africa 127.

In a statement signed by the President of NUSA, Mr Collins Mgbo, and Secretary-General, Mr Nimram Durven Longbap-Longs, the group mourned the death of Olusola Solarin as they emphasized that the deseased was a good man.

Part of the statement reads
“I have never seen a man with such a heart of gold. I’ve never seen a man so hardworking that with so little he built so much for his family within a reasonable time of his life.

“Life isn’t fair enough to allow him to taste the fruits of his labour. I am pushed to ask: `God why’ but if I do, of what benefit is it? Will he be brought back to life?,’’ Mgbo wrote in his tribute.

The NUSA president said he had wished it was on a different occasion instead of Solarin’s death that he as NUSA president was talking about the achievements of Solarin.

“On behalf of NUSA, I Collins Mgbo express the union’s heart-felt condolences to you and your family on the senseless brutal murder of your loving and patriotic husband.

“It is NUSA’s prayer that God will grant you the determination to bear this irremediable loss.

“Please keep it in mind that your late husband’s best wishes will always be with you and your children throughout the rest of your life.

“May Comrade Solarin’s gentle soul rest in peace,” Mgbo wrote.

Solarin has since been buried at Makun community in Sagamu, in Ogun state on Jan. 3.
