A court in South Africa on Monday sentenced a police constable, Austin Reynold, to 30 years imprisonment for killing a Nigerian living in that country.

Reynold, 24, was accused of killing Ebuka Emmanuel Okoli on January 19, 2018 in Durban, Kwa Zulu-Natal Province, South Africa.

The court convicted the policeman three days after he was found guilty of shooting the victim at close range and robbing him during an unauthorised raid on a community where Okoli resided.

The convicted officer was found guilty on all four charges, including one charge of murder and three charges of robbery.

Reynold’s accomplice in the raid, Brinley Pallo, testified against him last Friday while giving his testimony before Judge Shyam Gyanda.
