Alika Ogorchukwu, a 39-year-old Nigerian, was killed by an Italian man in the country’s Civitanova Marche city area, according to the Nigerian Embassy in Rome, Italy.

The incident took place on Friday in the Italian city of Civitanova Marche, which is a part of the Province of Macerata’s Marche Region.

The development was confirmed by the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission and the Nigerian Embassy.

The incident was described as a “brutal murder” by the embassy in a statement outlining what happened, which added that all hands would be on deck to ensure justice was served.

The statement read, “The attention of the Embassy has been drawn to the brutal murder of Alika Ogorchukwu. A 39-year-old Nigerian citizen who was beaten to death by an Italian man on Friday 29th July 2022, in Civitanova Marche city, located in the Province of Macerata, Marche Region of Italy.

“His Excellency, Ambassador Mfawa Omini Abam has condemned the gruesome murder and has commiserated with Mrs. Charity Oriachi, wife of the deceased, and the rest of his family.

“His Excellency has directed the provision of immediate consular assistance as appropriate. The Embassy is currently collaborating with relevant Italian authorities to ensure justice is served and to provide succour to the family of the deceased.

“Ambassador Abam wishes to enjoin members of the Nigerian community in Italy to remain calm and to refrain from taking laws into their hands.

“His Excellency wishes to reassure Nigerians in Italy that citizen diplomacy remained the key thrust of his administration and will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that all Nigerians in Italy receive timely, efficient, and professional consular services.”

Also, confirming the development in a tweet on Saturday, NIDCOM wrote, “39-year-old Nigerian citizen was beaten to death by an Italian man on Friday 29th July 2022, in Civitanova Marche city, located in the Province of Macerata, Marche Region of Italy.”

Two shooters at the ATL Lounge in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, shot and killed two Nigerian guys.

Adam Abdul, who claims to be a relative to one of the two Nigerian men, identified them as Chibueze Momah (22), and Tosin Awaroshegbe (25).

Abdul wrote, “Eze and Tosin were both diligent workers who served as security guards for many lounges in Vaughan. They were loved and cherished by many in the community.

“Their story was only getting started as they had both recently graduated. Eze was set to make his way into the tech industry and Tosin our beloved engineer.

“Unfortunately, their time was cut short. It is our hope to raise $50,000 for each respective family to help with funeral costs and to reunite their bodies with their families.”
