Nigerian Man Bags Life Sentence, Others For South African Upcoming Artiste’s Murder

Onyeghani Dumkele, an identified Nigerian man who allegedly murdered an up-and-coming artiste, Shaun Douglas Chabalala, of 23years Old in South Africa, has been sentenced to life imprisonment.

Reports revealed that the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court had also sentenced the Nigerian 37-year-old Dumkele to an additional 15 years imprisonment for aggravated robbery, including a 12-month suspended sentence on the condition that he be deported to his native country after he completes his concurrent sentence for killing and aggravated robbery.

According to Captain Daniel Mavimbela, a South African Police Service spokesperson, revealed Chabalala and his friend, Given Mzamane, were lured to the Tambotie block of flats in Sunnyside, east of Pretoria, in May 2018 through a fake advertisement for a luxury camera.

He revealed that the boys had gone there to buy the camera, and they were carrying a cash amount of R14 000 on them, only to be led into an ambush inside an apartment where Dumkele lived on the seventh floor which in the long run cut short his life.
