George Onyekachi Onuoha, a Nigerian man, was brutally beaten to death in Indonesia on Sunday, July 9, 2023. According to reports, George was killed by individuals suspected to be affiliated with the ‘Ambon boys’ in Tangerang, a city located in the province of Banten, Indonesia.
The incident has been confirmed by Chief Omeogo Okolie, the President of the Nigerian community in Indonesia. He stated that preliminary information indicates that the attack on George was not a case of mistaken identity but of deliberate targeting. The police have initiated an official investigation into the matter, and no arrests have been made thus far.
The Nigerian embassy is eagerly awaiting the official report from the police. They trust that all individuals involved, both internally and externally, will be apprehended, and a comprehensive update will be provided to the public.
During this challenging time, Okolie urges everyone to remain calm, law-abiding, and vigilant. The body of George Onuoha has been taken to the mortuary.
Another eyewitness to the incident, another Nigerian, shared with SaharaReporters that the motive behind the attack remains unknown. He expressed frustration, stating, “This incident occurred on Sunday morning in Indonesia, where our Nigerian brother was attacked and killed by locals. This is not an isolated event; it keeps happening, and the embassy’s response is inadequate. They take no action.”
This tragic incident has left many in shock and mourning. Our thoughts are with George Onyekachi Onuoha’s family and friends during this difficult time.
