Another Nigerian has reportedly died in South Africa.
The Nigerian Union, South Africa (NUSA) announced the painful and unfortunate death of Mr Udebuani Chidokweanaukwu, who drowned in that country.
Chidokweanaukwu, a native of Nando in Anambra, drowned in a beach in Swellendam near Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa.
The Publicity Secretary of the Union, Mr Habib Miller, confirmed the accident in a statement issued to journalists in Port Harcourt on Wednesday.
“With sorrow and heavy heart, we have received the news of the death of Udebuani Chidokweanaukwu from Nando, Anambra State.
“According to the information from an eye witness, Chidikweanaukwu got drowned on the beach at Swellendam on Dec. 17.
“He is survived by his wife and children. NUSA sympathises with his family and friends at this difficult time of grief and pray God comfort them,” he said.
Miller urged members to be cautious as well as obey safety rules when visiting the beach and other hazardous places.
Recall that some Nigerians have died in South Africa over attacks by the citizens of the country which received series of condemnation. However, in this case, it is not as a result of attacks by the citizens.
