Death Of Nigerian PhD Student In Malaysia Immigration Custody

Shocking news on death of Nigerian PhD student in immigration custody

This is about the shocking news of a foreigner, a Nigerian-national who died in immigration custody. He holds a valid student pass when he was arrested and detained in Malaysia Immigration custody. He passed away in an un-natural death while in Malaysia immigration custody. At the time of his death, he was doing his post-graduate studies in the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur.

This is another one of the numerous documented horror tales of Immigration abuses that has been going on for many years.

As for the undocumented tales, all the victims and witnesses are blacklisted from entering Malaysia. This makes them unable to take their tales of their horrifying experiences to the public.

There were also calls made by two DAP Members of Parliament to the Government of Malaysia as well as the Immigration Department for a public inquest.

Death from un-natural causes could happened to anyone in custody and there is no justice if no open public inquiry is conducted.

There are already many records of deaths from un-natural causes in Malaysia immigration posted online during the past few years. When I was inside, I witnessed an Indian national was taken to the staging ground with serious rat urine poisoning symptoms and being made to wait to receive emergency treatment. However due to their SOP, he was delayed for a long time before him being sent to the hospital. There was talk that he did not make it. Subsequently, there was a lots of inspections being carried out on all the surrounding areas by different groups of higher ups authorities. We make inquiry with the Indian Embassy in KL and receive some limited answer and we could not go beyond anything.

The Malaysian FC Art. 8(1) enshrines the following:
“All persons are equal before the law and entitled to the equal protection of the law.”

By the same token, in accordance with FC Art. 8 law, immigration officers perpetrating these crimes must be penalized in accordance with the Penal Code.
