A 30 year jail term, equivalent of a life sentence has been handed down to a South African police constable, Austin Reynold, for suffocating a Nigerian with a plastic back during intense and inhuman torture, in  Ebuka Okoli in Durban a coastal city in Kwa Zulu-Natal province in South Africa.

The court, which had earlier convicted the 24-year-old policeman, formally pronounced the sentence on Monday, three days after he was found guilty of shooting the victim at close range and robbing him during an unauthorised raid on a community where Okoli resided.

He was charged with one count of murder and three counts of robbery

Reynold was unlucky as his accomplice in the raid, Brinley Pallo, testified against him while giving his testimony before Judge Shyam Gyanda on Friday.
