Nigerians in Malaysia Stage Peaceful Protest
Nigerians residing in Malaysia took to the streets to stage a peaceful protest at the Nigerian House in Malaysia. They protested against extortion, torture and abuse of Nigerian Nationals by the Malaysian police and immigration officers. They registered their displeasure at the way they are being treated by Malaysian police and the embassy’s non-nonchalant attitude towards their maltreatment.
They accused the Nigerian Ambassador and the Nigerian embassy officials of being insensitive to their plight, encouraging the Malaysian police to continually maltreat them. They also accused the consulate officials of not helping to renew their passports or issue new ones when needed. They also said the ambassador has completely abandoned them to their fate which has made Malaysian police mistreat Nigerian nationals in the country.
