Photo: Nigerian man shot dead in the US

Cyril Efobi, a Nigerian man who works as a taxi driver in North Carolina US, was shot dead by an unknown gunman on November 8th.

Cyril who moved from Nigeria to the US over 30 years ago, had on the day he was killed, closed early in the evening in order to go home and watch the US presidential election.  After exchanging banters with some colleagues, he packed up his laptop and stepped out of the office. A few minutes later, one of his colleagues heard gunshots outside the building.
The police was called in and Cyril's body was found lying just by the door. He had died from gunshot wounds.  He was 56. The police is yet to make any arrest. The surveillance camera however caught the alleged gunman during and after the attack.

Cyril moved from Nigeria to Raleigh about 30 years ago to further his education. A graduate of Shaw University, Cyril made Raleigh his permanent home after his studies. Members of the Nigerian community say he had no wife or children and that he lived alone.   A candle light was held recently for him.


Plans are on to send his body back to Nigeria for burial.

CNN didn't report this....Wat a shame!

He could have had a wife or been in relationship and also child or children from the past. Maybe?
Many of these guys of that his age abroad always have bad or very horrible life experiences with their women abroad. Nothing surprising there!
Go to Canada, Europe & UK where you'll find so many old men like that single, staying alone and have no wife or a family with them. Such a disappointment and heavy waste of life.

Let him remain there we don't want his dead body here. Haba, no wife no kid. Who wan bury am. Foolish selfish man

You are one morbid woman, I hope that you or any member of your family will never be caught in the crossfire of life. He is a human being,not being married or have children doesn't make him less of a human being, more so you don't even know his story.
It only makes sense that people stay quiet if they don't have any sensible thing to say.

May his soul rest in perpetual peace.
Hopefully the coward who committed this crime will be caught,and answer for this crime against an innocent soul.

You are stupid for writing this crap that came out of your empty head. A man is dead and this bullshit is all you could write. He didn't have a family. He was a hustler. A taxi driver. Do you think its easy to raise a family. He died alone which is sad and you spew dung from your smelling mouth. Do you know how he lived his life, if he was paying through his nose. You poverty stricken bitch. Go find a Man and try raising a family in this harsh conditions. Goat!

So being married determines whether one is wasting their life or not? Eager to know your view on Reverend father Mr. Judge of Life Sir.

Vic said...

I just hope this is not tied in any way to Trump racial outbursts. This cannot be a coincidence it happening within the period of presidential election. Just hope the police department conduct further investigation leaving no stones unturned cuz they usually have a long history unresolving black related homicides.Rest In Peace Sir.

@ Celynkay you are just as stupid as you look. How dare you comment about a dead man like that? do you know what could have led him to live without a wife and kid before he passed on? You just sit there and write rubbish. That is how some of you incur the wrath of God with your stupid utterances. Asshole!
