Nel said the information that Meyiwa was targeted came from the police. 

"it's not my belief [that Meyiwa was assassinated], I received the briefing from the South African Police Service, from the investigating officer, from the investigating team. That's also their belief."

The advocate said the facts point to the assassination and said Afriforum felt it was their duty to share that information with the family.

Nel said he shares the view of Police Minister Bheki Cele that the state has a strong case against the accused.

Monday marked six years since the former Bafana Bafana and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper was killed.
