Winburg: Winburg police are searching for the next of kin of Nicolas Yusuf who should avail
themselves to claim the remains so that he can be laid to rest.

Nicolas Yusuf; a foreign national allegedly from Nigeria, died after a motor car collided with a truck on the N5 road in Winburg on Friday, 14 August 2020.

Winburg police are looking for Yusuf family. It is alleged that Yusuf was with his friend Bright Walker who was the driver when their car allegedly failed to stop at the Winburg N5 T-junction and collided with an oncoming truck that was headed to the N1.

The car that the two friends were driving in, burnt down on impact and as a result, their bodies were charred beyond recognition.

Winburg police opened a case of culpable homicide and preliminary investigation led them to find Walker’s family based in Johannesburg which identified him and claimed his body.

Yusuf’s family has not yet come forward and police appeal to anyone who might know Yusuf or his family to contact Detective Constable Liezel Van Der Westhuizen at 082 301 9668 or 051 881 8300.
