Police have arrested almost all suspects involved in the killing, according to a Senagelse news outlet.
Four suspects allegedly stabbed the 29-year old victim while he was going back to his house in Casablanca on Friday, September 13.
Sory Kaba, the head of Senegal’s direcotrate for Senegalese residing abroad, reassured his compatriots that justice will be served in the murder case.
Kaba said in an interview with Senegalese radio RFM that Moroccan police are doing their best to arrest other members involved in the murder.
He said in the interview that the Senegalese man was murdered by “a drunkard.”
While condemning the heinous act with the same vigor as his countrymen residing in Casablanca and in Morocco at large, Kaba asked them to “stay calm” while police investigate the murder.
The community marched on Saturday, September 14 to mourn their deceased compatriot and condemn the murder.
A video posted by the Association of Senegalese Citizens Residing in Morocco showed the Senegalese community was shocked by the incident. Police were at the scene.
Kaba said that police are doing their duty to put all suspects involved in the murder in custody.
“We just ask our compatriots to stay calm. Marches are not the answer in a foreign country. All that needs to be done on this issue, will be done, “he reassured the community.
Senegalese news outlet Le Ral later reported that “almost all suspects” who committed the heinous crime have been arrested.
