The Italian police authorities have said a 39-year-old Nigerian, Alika Ogorchukwu, was killed by his attacker, Fillipo Ferlazzo, over alms begging.

“The attacker chased the victim and first attacked him with a crutch, then knocked him to the ground and finished him off, killing him by repeatedly striking him with his bare hands. It is a murder determined by futile motives. What emerges from the investigation is that the victim was particularly persistent in begging money from the attacker and his partner,” the police said.

The police were said to have used street cameras to track Ferlazzo’s movements and arrested him on Saturday on charges of murder and allegedly stealing the victim’s mobile phone.

The accused is currently being held in the Montacuto prison in Ancona.

The wife of the deceased, Charity Oriachi, demanded justice for her husband.

Speaking in a video uploaded on Daily Mail, Oriachi said, “I need justice for my husband. That is what I want. I need justice. The pain is too much for me.”

The Nigerian Embassy in Rome, Italy, in a statement, condemned the killing, describing it as brutal.
