According to Bruce Lesha, an American reporter who made the news known on Twitter, the Nigerian just got a job at Ernst and Young.
The man was murdered around 1:30 am at a Shell gas station of Connecticut Avenue.
Will Ventura, his friend, said that that the late Nigerian was a very “hardworking and caring” person, WUSA9 reports. Nigerian lady in pains as she mistakenly sends N243k extra to her church’s account
