The chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission’s (NiDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, says investigations into the circumstances surrounding the killing of a Nigerian, Olusola Solarin, in South Africa, were ongoing.

Mrs Dabiri-Erewa said this in an interview on Monday.

Mr Solarin was killed on December 12, 2021, raising the death tally of Nigerians in South Africa to more than 127 since 2019.

Records show that 13 Nigerians sent to their early graves in the Rainbow nation died at the hands of the South African police.

Mr Solarin was said to have met his death as he was returning to his base after supplying goods to his customers outside Johannesburg.

He is reported to have been waylaid and killed while attempting to stop his assailants from collecting the money he was paid by customers.

He has since been buried at the Makun community in Sagamu, near Abeokuta in Ogun.
