A Cameroonian national was stabbed to death in Fuzhou, Fujian Province at 4am June 15th, after being chased down by what has been described as a group of Chinese men.
The man has been identified as Ambe George, an MC known as The One.
Details of the murder remain unclear, but according to an eyewitness in a Chinese news report, the attack occurred in the entertainment area of Fuxin Rd, close to Fuzhou’s Yuefeng building.
The eyewitness told reporters that he was calling a friend in the neighborhood when he suddenly heard a commotion behind him. He then saw a dark-skinned man run out from the Yuefeng building being chased by a number of men, at least one brandishing a knife.
After chasing him for a section of the road, the dark-skinned man was caught up, surrounded by the group and beaten. The eyewitness said he heard several screams. "Afterwards I found out that the man was stabbed to death on the spot."
The report goes on to say that, according to insiders, the group rushed the man in an entertainment venue after seeing him with a woman. After he saw one of them pull out a knife, he fled. "I thought he ran away, I did not expect he was stabbed to death," an eyewitness inside the venue is quoted as saying.
The report says that by the time police arrived on the scene, several assailant had fled. The body was taken away and an investigation underway.
The man has been identified as Ambe George by Fuzhou Expat:
George, also known by his stage name 'The One,' was survived by his wife, Alla Ozhigina and their two small children. (Details about the murder are not clear now, we will keep you updated.) George was an entertainer working at E-Cover here in Fuzhou. Those who knew him said he was well liked.
