Nigerian Man Randomly Stabbed to Death by a Total Stranger in Canada

A 39-year-old man has been charged with second degree murder after a Friday evening stabbing in the downtown core. Shortly before 7:00 p.m., emergency crews were called to the City Hall LRT station following reports of a stabbing.

“Witnesses indicated they saw a man stab another man on the north platform in an unprovoked incident,” said CPS Inspector Don Coleman. “Upon arrival, officers found a 46-year-old male, Nicholas Nwonye, with life threatening injuries.”

Officers apprehended a suspect a short distance from the crime scene. “Transit security tracked the suspect going towards the south platform boarding an eastbound train,” said Coleman.

Police have recovered a knife, the suspect weapon in the attack. As a result of the investigation, 39-year-old Keeton Michel Gagnon has been charged with second degree murder in connection with Nicholas Ozoechi Nwonye’s death.

The two gentlemen were unknown to each other and we believe it was random in nature. The victim’s wife, Ugonna Nwonye, spent Monday surrounded by friends and family. “He was a righteous man,” she said.

“That means he was good in every aspect of life—spiritual and physical.” Nicholas was the father to three children. “He was a good father,” said his wife. “I’ve never seen his kind before—he was too good.”

Nwonye said it’s still difficult for her to talk about the tragic killing, but wanted people to know her husband was a good family man and person.
