The Federal Government has condemned the murder of a Nigerian, Alika Ogorchukwu, in Civitanova, Marche Province of Italy, by an unnamed Italian man.
This was disclosed in a statement made available to journalists, signed by the Spokesperson from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Francisca Omayuli.
The Nigerian Government called on the Government of Italy to bring the perpetrator of the heinous act under the jurisdiction of the Law without delay.
According to the statement, the Federal Government has directed its Embassy in Rome, Italy, to work speedily with the relevant Italian authorities, to ensure that justice is served, in order to forestall a repeat of the unfortunate incident.
Nigeria is deeply saddened and commiserates with the family of the deceased and calls on all Nigerians to exercise restraint as the Law takes its course.
Alika Ogorchukwu, 39, was beaten to death by an Italian, identified as Filippo Claudio Giuseppe Ferlazzo, in Civitanova Marche’s busy town centre, a beach town on the Adriatic Sea, on Friday.
Ferlazzo became infuriated when Ogorchukwu told his girlfriend she was beautiful, according to Daniel Amanza, who runs the ACSIM association for immigrants in the Marche region’s Macerata province.
