According to reports gathered, the assailant, Nicholas also known as Nico Dorja, who is a graduate of the University of Benin (UNIBEN) Nigeria, reportedly shot Ajence on Monday, January 3, at a petrol station on Central Avenue, in the Kempton Park area, Gauteng.

Reports further revealed that police chased them, and a deadly shoot-out, however, led to the demise of two other Nigerian nationals while three others including Ogbeifun, were arrested.

Ogbeifun also known as Nico Dorja, is said to be an alleged member of the Neo Black Movement of Africa also known as Black Axe.
Spokesperson for the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) Grace Langa said Ogbeifun, John Ohami, and Jeda Quadri appeared in the Kempton Park magistrate’s court on Wednesday in connection with the murder of Ajence.

The suspect, who graduated from UNIBEN, and other defendants are expected to appear in the Kempton Park magistrate’s court on Thursday, January 13, 2022, for a bail application.
