U.S. police hunt for suspected killers of Nigerian

OUTRAGED at the gruesome murder of a Nigerian in the Brownsville area of Brooklyn, the police in New York have begun a move to unravel the suspected attackers.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) Sunday quoted sources as saying that the victim of the attack, Uro Ama Orji, 54, a cab driver in the area, was stabbed in the eye with an umbrella on Thursday.

After he had been wounded, his vehicle crashed into two parked sports utility vehicles at Lott Avenue and Boyland Street at about 5.30 p.m.

Orji, who resided in Queens, was taken to Brookdale Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Following the development, a $5,000 reward was offered for information that could lead to the arrest of the suspects.

The New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers offered a $3,000 reward, while the group of 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care offered another $2,000.

Police said they were looking for a man and woman who were passengers in the cab and seen running from the scene.

A video showed the man getting out of the cab, opening the front door of the vehicle and stabbing Orji with an umbrella.

“It’s clearly on that video. You have a female and male, and the male runs, the young lady walking away, perhaps guilt got the best of her.

“This is a total outrage. This is just a guy trying to make a buck to probably feed himself and his family only to have his life taken for less than $10 or maybe $20 , which is close to the average fare one would pay for a local ride inside Brooklyn”, community advisor, Tony Herbert, said.

“It’s a very dangerous job, a very dangerous business,” Fernando Mateo, President of the New York State Federation of Taxi Drivers, also said.

Community activists are asking a UPS driver who might have witnessed the incident to come forward.

Orji, a father of five children, came from Nigeria to U.S. 10 years ago to make a better living for his family.

His children, whose ages are from 13 to 22, arrived in U.S. from Nigeria in December.

“It’s still early, fresh. They are still in the denial stage,” said Orji’s brother, Agwu Ana Agwu.
