Sad: Nigerian man, 22, shot dead in the US ‘while trying to sell PlayStation 4’ (PICTURED)

by ‘Jola Sotubo


A young Nigerian man living in the United States has been killed after going to deliver a PlayStation 4 that he had advertised online.

22-year-old Ikenna Uwakah was shot several times over the new console that he had advertised on Instagram for ‘some $600′ and subsequently died of his injuries in a hospital.

The unidentified assailant shot Ikenna in broad daylight while he was sitting in his girlfriend’s car at a busy junction in Daly City near San Francisco in California.

Nigerian Eye reports:

A 21-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the incident, which took place on Sunday.

While police have not confirmed that the suspect stole the PS4, he has also been charged with attempted robbery.

The family of Mr Uwakah, a student at Santa Monica College, have expressed disbelief at his death.

His brother Obinna described him as ‘a kid that brightened up every room he arrived in’, while his sister told the San Francisco Chronicle: ‘He had a lot of friends, and a lot of people liked him.

‘He was a normal kid, just trying to find his way in this world.’
