A Nigerian Man, Alika Ogorchukwu ,BRUTALLY KILLED In the street of Italy while onlookers filmed as no one intervened
The video footage of the assault on the crippled guy has been extensively disseminated throughout several Italian news websites and social media platforms.The police said that they could hear bystanders yelling "stop," but no efforts were made to physically separate the two individuals.In the midst of Italy's next parliamentary election campaign, in which the right-wing coalition has already made immigration a topic of discussion, it has caused a great deal of controversy.
Enrico Letta, the leader of the left-leaning Democratic Party, named the street seller who was killed on Friday in a tweet he sent on Twitter. He referred to the victim as Alika Ogorchukwu. "The murder of Alika Ogorchukwu is dismaying," Letta tweeted."Unprecedented viciousness. Indifference on a massive scale. There is no possible excuse for it."After the savage assault, the 32-year-old suspect, Filippo Claudio Giuseppe Ferlazzo, was located with the help of street cameras and was subsequently taken into custody by the police.He is being held on suspicion of murder and theft, the latter for allegedly taking the victim's phone when he fled.
According to the police, Mr. Ogorchukwu, 39, was selling products on the main street of Civitanova Marche, a seaside town on the Adriatic Sea coast, around noon on Friday when an Italian man snatched a crutch the street-seller used to walk and punched him down. Mr. Ogorchukwu was knocked unconscious.
Despite his efforts to fight back, the video shows him being taken down to the ground by his attackers.
Onlookers alerted the police, who came to the scene after a suspect had gone and sought to provide medical assistance to the victim, according to the head of police, Matteo Luconi, who was quoted by the Italian news station Sky TG24. It was unclear if he had passed away at the site of the accident.
