Nigerian Man Falls From 5th Floor While Trying To Evade Arrest

An unidentified Nigerian man said to be in his 30’s, has attempted suicide by jumping off a high rise building while trying to evade arrest by the Police during a raid in Malaysia.
A Nigerian man on Saturday, September 30, fell from the fifth floor while trying to evade the police at Flora Damansara apartments in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia.
The unnamed Nigerian said to be in his 30’s, who broke his hand and nose during the fall, was among 51 foreigners nabbed in the Ops Black Flora on Friday.
Selangor CID chief Senior Asst Comm, Fadzil Ahmat said 171 foreigners were screened during the raid that lasted from 7pm to 11pm.
“Out of the 51 who were arrested, eight were women. The majority of them are from Nigeria while the others are from Nepal, Thailand, India, Bangladesh, Kenya and Uganda,” he told a press conference.
Ten of those arrested tested positive for drugs. The raid, conducted following complaints by residents of illegal activities at the apartments, involved over 400 personnel from the police, Immigration Department and the Petaling Jaya Municipal Council.
However, some residents said the raid was “unnecessarily heavy handed.”
Frances Tan, 34, from Penang said the manner in which her Cameroonian husband of six years was hauled off, despite having proper travel documents, was too much.
“They took him away like a criminal in front of our two children. I told them that checking his documents is fine and there was no need to treat him like that but they refused to listen,” she said.
Tan said her husband, Ngan David Pagbe, 40, a professional basketball player in the Urban KL Basketball league was leaving the house for a match when he was detained.

The analysts noted that foreign investors are always wary of insecurity in any economy and would begin to halt investments.

As a result, the NSE All-Share Index, ASI declined 75 bases points, bps or 0.7 percent to 28,449.49 points.

Activity level improved as volume and value traded rose by 9.8 percent and 44.3 percent to 326.6million units and N4.2billion respectively. The most traded stocks by volume were UBA (40.3million units), Zenith Bank (39.6million units) and Guaranty Trust Bank (38.3million units) while Guaranty Trust Bank (N1.1billion ), Zenith Bank (N800.9million) and Nestle (N479.9million) led by value.
