A South African police constable, Austin Reynold, will spend the next 30 years in jail as he has been sentenced by a court for killing a Nigerian, Ebuka Okoli who was living in South Africa.
Twenty-four-year Reynold was accused of killing Okoli in Durban, a coastal city in Kwa Zulu-Natal province in South Africa.
The court sentenced the policeman on Monday, 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.
He was charged with one count of murder and three counts of robbery
Reynold was unlucky as his accomplice in the raid, Brinley Pallo, testified against him while giving his testimony before Judge Shyam Gyanda on Friday.
