This Friday, July 29, Alika Ogorchukwu, a 39-year-old Nigerian, was beaten to death in broad daylight in the middle of a busy shopping street in the center of the coastal town of Civitanova Marche. In question ?
According to the police, the victim was selling goods when a 32-year-old man, called Filippo Ferlazzo, decided to attack him. The latter would then have attacked the traveling salesman after he wanted to sell him and his companion, with “insistence” tissues, before asking them “change”.
“Four minutes of horror”
And what follows is a scene of rare violence. Indeed, the Nigerian, disabled and equipped with a crutch, was chased by his attacker and thrown to the ground. On the images of the attack, circulating on social networks and the media, we can even see the suspect rushing at Alika Ogorchukwu.
Then he grabbed his crutch and hit him in the face. There, he simply unleashed on him, with his bare hands, for “four minutes of horror”, according to Corriere della Sera. But that’s not all! Because after beating the Nigerian to death, he also stole his mobile phone.
