The 41-year-old father of one died on Wednesday after being assaulted on Dublin's Pearse Street in a row over a taxi fare.

And despite the fact that his death is not believed to have been racially motivated, anti-racist groups are planning a protest march in his honour this Wednesday.

Pastor Lawrence Oyetunji, of Christ Ambassadors Christian Centre in Finglas, confirmed that a service of song has been organised for next Friday, December 2, followed by a Requiem Mass and burial at Glasnevin Cemetery.

He said that Moses' wife Sola was a "good Christian" and had told him that she was "ready to forgive and let go".

A man was arrested in connection with the incident but released without charge. A file is being prepared for the DPP.
