According to the statement, the victim is identified as one 43-year-old Benjamin Simeon and a native of Okposi in Ebonyi State in South-east Nigeria.

The spokesperson for the association, Sunny-Wenike Douglas, explained that until his death, late Simeon was a Taxify driver.

The victim was said to have been killed almost immediately after dropping off his clients in a part of the city.

Douglas added that an investigating officer with the South Africa Police Service confirmed that a case of murder had been opened on the matter.

He vowed that his association would follow up with the case to ensure that the killers were arrested and brought to justice.

On June 12, a Nigerian insurance officer, Mrs Obianuju Ndubuisi-Chukwu, was murdered in South Africa while attending a conference there.

Her killing was followed shortly by the murder of a Nigerian teenager who was also shot dead in Johannesburg.
