Nigerian killed in Italy sparks outrage

Outrage has been generated by the death of a migrant in central Italy who was attacked in broad open. On Friday, a guy in Civitanova Marche’s town center was caught on camera assaulting a Nigerian street vendor. The victim is shown being held to the ground by a white male in the recording, which was apparently made by bystanders without any attempt to help. An Italian man, 32, has been detained on suspicion of homicide and robbery. The attack’s video, which has been extensively shared on social media and Italian news websites, has stunned the neighborhood, with many pointing out the “indifference” of bystanders. Uncertainty surrounds the incident’s circumstances.

Alika Ogorchukwu, a married father of two, has been identified as the victim. His wife, Charity Oriachi, broke down in tears as she described to the media how she was shown her husband’s body laying on the ground. Thousands of members of the local Nigerian community descended on Civitanova Marche, in the Marche region, on Saturday to protest and demand justice. Politicians in Italy also denounced the incident. Left-leaning Democratic Party leader Enrico Letta called what transpired “dismaying.”

In addition to expressing outrage over the death, right-wing leader Matteo Salvini said that security has no color” and that it has to return to being a right.

  • This is sad. People indifferent to stuff like this. Those people holding the camera could have helped.
