Otugo was allegedly stabbed on Tuesday by assailants who accompanied an unsatisfied customer whose cellphone he had repaired, according to the Punch newspaper, also based in Nigeria.
"Otugo died on the way to the hospital following the stabbing. We have reported the incident to the police and national secretariat of our union, NUSA," Sylvester Okonkwo, acting provincial chairman of Nigerian Union, South Africa (NUSA), was "ed by the Punch.
