An
argument between Pius and the South African police officers degenerated
so fast that a gun shot was fired, leading to Pius’ death. Pius was
married to a South African who was present at the scene of the incident.
He reportedly asked the policemen to kill him in his house as he would
not follow them to where they wanted to take him to. Sadly, the
policemen allegedly killed him in the presence of his family.

All phones were seized except that of Pius’ sister in-law who recorded his altercation with the police.

Confirming
the incident, the Nigerian Ambassador to South Africa, Godwin Adama,
said a formal report has been launched to the South African police on
the incident.

An autopsy has been carried out but the result has not been released.

Not one of the police officers have been arrested.
