Nigerians demand justice on death of student in Malaysia
Nigerians in Malaysia are demanding that those involved in the beating to death of a Nigerian student for alleged rape in Malaysia be brought to book.
Three weeks ago, the student died in police station after being rescued from a mob that allegedly beat him for attempting to rape a lady inside a lift in Damansara.
Acting High Commissioner of the Nigerian embassy, Mrs. Janet Odeka is yet to make the identity of the deceased known to the public.
Also, efforts made to get facts of the case and update from her yielded no positive result. Nigerians who spoke with Daily Trust expressed disbelief, indignation and frustration at the incident noting that such act portends danger for Nigerians in Malaysia and dangerous to the interest of the two countries’ relationship.
Nigerians called on the embassy in to be more active in protecting and promoting the interest of citizens.
Meanwhile, Presidents of Nigerian in Diaspora, Malaysia (NIDOMY), Chief James Emarievbe and Nigerian Students Forum, Malaysia (NSFM), Ochu Joshua disclosed that the associations and embassy were already investigating the case.
