A week on, Africans identify dead Nigerian

Nearly a week after the suspicious death of the African in Byrathi Cross, which the police claimed to be an accident, African community members came forward to identify the deceased formally on Saturday.

The members gave in writing to the investigating officials that they identified the body of the African to be that of Ifeanyi Madu, a Nigerian national. The deceased Madu was a 35-year-old from Anambra state of Nigeria and stayed in Horamavu Agara. He briefly worked at a restaurant named Nancy’s Kitchen in Horamavu, the police said.

The police shared information with the Nigerian High Commission which will inform his family. “We have to get a no-objection certificate (NOC) from his family through the high commission to proceed with the post-mortem,” said a senior police officer.

“Earlier, the African community members were not cooperating in the investigation, but they are cooperating now,” the officer added. “We are still clueless about the person riding the bike with Madu. We are checking the CCTV footage of the accident spot. We are also trying to get information about Madu’s friend from Horamavu,” the officer said.
