A Nigerian rapper identified as Nicholas Ebanehita Ogbeifun has been arraigned over the murder of another Nigerian man in Johannesburg, South Africa.
The deceased Nigerian named Ajence was reportedly shot on Monday, January 3, in what resembled an assassination, at a petrol station on Central Avenue, in the Kempton Park area, Gauteng.
According to reports, a police chase and a deadly shoot-out, however, lead to the death of two other Nigerian nationals while three others including Ogbeifun, were arrested.
Ogbeifun also known as Nico Dorja, is said to be an alleged member of the Neo Black Movement of Africa also known as Black Axe.
Spokesperson for the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) Grace Langa said Ogbeifun, John Ohami, and Jeda Quadri appeared in the Kempton Park magistrate’s court on Wednesday in connection with the murder of Ajence.
The suspect, who graduated from UNIBEN, and other defendants are expected to appear in the Kempton Park magistrate’s court on Thursday, January 13, 2022, for a bail application.
