4 Nigerians Killed In South Africa by addey(m): 8:56am On Jul 06, 2013
Four Nigerians died when a group of men opened fire on them in Benoni, on the East Rand, police said on Friday.

Five men were in a Volkswagen Golf on Thursday evening when a car stopped in front of them, police spokesperson Tim Masilela said.

A group of men got out of the car and opened fire, killing two men in the Golf.

A wounded passenger tried to run away, but collapsed and died a few metres from the scene. A fourth man died later in hospital.

The fifth man in the car was not hurt.

"The motive behind the shooting is unknown. Police are still investigating," Masilela said.

Last Saturday, three Nigerians were killed in a cellphone shop in Voortrekker Street, Benoni. They were inside the shop when five armed men entered around 18:00, police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini said at the time.

The five opened fire, killing two of the customers, both 38, inside the shop, and the third man, 40, at the shop door.

The gunmen fled in a green BMW. They were also believed to be Nigerians, said Dlamini.

He said the police found spent cartridges at the scene, and a licensed firearm belonging to one of the men who died.

Nothing was stolen.

"The motive for the killing is still unknown but a possibility that the victims were a rival group is being investigated," he said.

Men will never learn. Its easy to remove an animal from the bush, but its very difficult to remove the bush from the animal. Now I know why it took the whites YEARS to "DE-BUSHIFY" those bush animals that dwell in the Southern part of the African continent.

your "source" ie the link you gave to buttress your jargon is a 2010 post here on Nairaland with out a source. You bookmarked it all this years to justify and conceal the barbaric acts of your brothers. You obviously reason in millimeters( slow and ..). Infact you reason like the South African you are.

Maybe it is systematic approach by the south african government to deplete the Nigerian population by setting up a hit squad.

Ur incopetent police are trying to cover up the violence by south africans on nigerians and you are here saying nonsense. If the police are competent, they would have arrest the perpetrators and tell us their nationality and make them face justice instead of speculating.

No-one in South Africa gets killed randomly. It's obvious the deceased were no to their attackers.

You mean our police, that we pay with our tax money should leave all other duties and act as some probably dodgey, illegal and faked name and ID Nigerian body guards? Becouse all these attacks were done at strange times and places where
there were no witnesses.

In SA its not hard to meet a Nigerian whose name is Dumisani Mabaso who is 14 years old but came alone and drives a citi golf. Tell me now where do they start looking for such a person becouse rest assured the nigga will not be in the official database only his friends will know his real details.

Please attack with facts. Nigerians especially the non proffessinal tend to flock together they need to have each others back and report or comppaign if hits like these are done by South Africans. How do you think our police should get any information in situation.like these.

If the government starts deploying police to moniter Nigerians 24/7 guess who is going to cry harrasment, racist, hate, xenophobia.

Please people choose one and stick to it. You can ask Jonathan to ask his pal Zuma to make available 24/7 survailance on all Nigerians in SA.
You are starting to me make me dizzy now.
