Nigerian Canadian Association head, Chidi Nwanyanwu speaks to the crowd at the spot where Nnamdi Ogba died. Mayor Tory is on the far right.

On a bitterly cold evening, Mayor John Tory and Ward 2 Councillor Mike Ford joined a large crowd at a vigil last night for Nnamdi Ogba who, selected at random, was murdered last Friday by two armed men. Mr. Ogba, came to Canada with his parents from Nigeria and became an electrical engineer employed in Brampton. He was visiting friends at Scarlettwood Court when he was shot.

Nnamdi Ogba’s parents, Margaret Nwsou and Sylva Okzie remember their son.

The mayor promised Nnamdi Ogba’s parents that the death of their son would not go in vain.

Mayor Tory consoles Nnamdi Ogba’s parents, Margaret Nwsou and Sylva Okzie.

Mayor Tory was advised that the community would be bringing forward a petition asking for better quality video surveillance.
