On Saturday, August 6, two protests were conducted in a village on Italy's Adriatic coast to call for justice for Nigerian street vendor Alika Ogorchukwu, who was killed by a man in an assault that made headlines across the world.

After Ogorchukwu allegedly complemented Filippo Ferlazzo's partner's attractiveness on the streets of Civitanova Marche city in the Province of Macerata, Marche Region of Italy, Ferlazzo shot and murdered him.

The organizers of one of the marches in Civitanova Marche by Nigerians living in the province of Macerata said they did not want claims of racism that they believed could not be verified to impede the pursuit of justice.

Charity Oriakhi, the widow of the victim Ogorchukwu, and two of his brothers organized the protest.
