Nigerian Man Kills Chinese National After Being Deported For Abusing A Horse

A Nigerian, who was deported from Malta for abusing a horse, has been arrested for murder in Italy.

A 24-year-old Nigerian man, Robert Omo has been arrested and dragged to court for allegedly killing a 59-year-old Chinese national in Italy, just a few months after he was deported from Malta for abusing a horse.

Nigerian Man Allegedly Kills Chinese National In Italy

It was gathered that Omo attacked the two men on July 30, first striking a 49-year-old Bulgarian from behind before attacking the Chinese man who stepped in to stop him.

The 24-year-old Nigerian was alleged to have bludgeoned the Chinese man to death using a hammer, but the Bulgarian man was seriously injured.

Italian media has reported that the Bulgarian man is still in hospital with serious injuries while the Chinese man died as a result of the attack.

When Omo was charged with murder in an Avellino court last week, he pleaded not guilty, claiming not to recall what happened in the incident.

Omo was in Italy after having been jailed and expelled from Malta where he was caught inside a Xewkija stable with his trousers down, standing behind a horse.

Video footage showed him chasing the horse around the stables, kicking it and hitting it.

He told the Maltese court that he had been drinking heavily that day and was looking for his mobile phone on the ground. But a magistrate did not buy that story and in November 2020 Omo was jailed for 12 months for animal cruelty.

He was deported to Italy where he is based, after serving his prison sentence in Malta.

Italian media reported that Omo was living at a care home in Avellino but had also been expelled after he assaulted a worker there.

KanyiDaily had also reported how a 41-year-old Nigerian man, Obinna Igbokwe killed himself after shooting his wife, Tangela Igbokwe, and grandmother in the United States.
