They Killed My Husband In Custody - Wife Of Dead Nigerian PHD Student In Malaysia Cries Out

July 16, 2019


Nigerian PhD student and father of two, Mr Thomas Orhionsefe Ewansiha, 34, have been allegedly murdered while in the detention of the Malaysian immigration authorities according to the deceased family.
In a press statement by the family yesterday, Mrs Blessing Ewansiha, wife of the alleged murdered Doctoral student, said the victim was murdered in the custody of the Malaysian immigration authorities.
Ewansiha, who is pursuing a PhD in Management at the Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, was arrested on July 4, 2019 at Desa Aman Puri area of Damansara and died five days later. He was said to be in possession of a valid student visa at the time of his arrest.
The deceased is not new in Malaysia as he was said to have studied for a degree and masters degree programmes in the country.
However, a statement released by the Nigerian High Commission in Kuala Lumpur on July 12, 2019 the Commission stated that it is “engaging with Malaysian Immigration Authorities and awaiting the result of the Autopsy report. The High Commission has equally taken note of the concerns of Nigerians in Malaysia. The High Commission assures that necessary steps are being taken towards addressing the unfortunate incidence with a view for a redress and to prevent such occurrence in the future”.
Lamenting on the death of her husband, Mrs Ewanisha said: “The immigration officers on raid came on private vehicles and there was nothing to identify them as immigration officers because they were not wearing uniforms. They rushed out of their various vehicles with sticks and they were chasing Nigerians, and my husband’s car was parked close by so he was about rushing to his car that was when they held him and handcuffed him both hands with other victims. No sane mind at that time will believe the men are state officials but rather gangsters. Even with valid visa with him they took him away and locked him and the immigration didn’t inform the school until he died in their custody.
“Mr Thomas Orhionsefe Ewansiha who was just fresh from a visit to his place of birth in Nigeria, Edo State apparently wanted to share his experiences of his visit to Nigeria and of course deliver one or two messages from loved ones to his fellow countryman also living in Malaysia.
“On arrival at the destination he called his friend who stayed in one of the apartments to meet him up at a particular restaurant downstairs as he wanted to have his dinner since he came from afar.
“While waiting for his meal, immigration officers in a commando style operation swooped in on him in what was later discovered to be a raid on the neighbourhood against black immigrants.
“Mr Orhions was shocked but remained calm knowing fully well he had all his necessary documents and permits intact. Within the commotion that took place Ori Baba was beaten, man handled and handcuffed. He was forced to seat on the floor while the immigration officers raided other apartments finally arresting over 20 black immigrants.
Ori Baba tried in vain to explain to the mean looking immigration officers that he had his valid papers on him and was indeed a responsible and tax paying immigrant with no blemish on his record.
“He told them how he came to Malaysia to study. How he got his Bsc from Twintech International University College of Technology, Malaysia.
His Msc from Limkokwing University, Malaysia and  his PhD currently at Limkokwing University, Malaysia.How he has contributed immensely to the economy of Malaysia and paid all necessary taxes to enable him come this far in Malaysia. He narrated how he started his family in Malaysia and where he stays with his wife and two children in same Malaysia. The whole narrative fell on deaf ears as he was taken into custody,” the statement reads.
“After my husband’s death, he was taken to hospital where they carried out an autopsy, they butchered him, and both sides of his neck were cut down to his chest and lower abdomen. They tore the upper and lower arms of his body without our consent. No Nigerian, no family member was there, they don’t have any right to do that. It is suspicious and that is why we want to perform a fresh autopsy on him.”
Quoting the Malaysia immigration’s director general, Datuk Khairul Daud, she added: “an officer on duty at the Bukit Jalil immigration depot was alerted at around 12.05am on July 9 by other detainees of Thomas’ seizure during his sleep, which was then followed by immediate medical treatment by a special treatment unit on duty, as well as further assistance from an ambulance that arrived at 12.30am before he was verified as dead. He claims an autopsy is awaited to determine the cause of his death.”
According to the deceased family, the narrative put up by the Malaysian Immigration Services shows a concerted effort to “conceal what really transpired and a grand effort to hide their role in the proximate cause of his death”.

Shi’ites attack National Assembly, shoot policemen, destroy properties

July 10, 2019


Members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, popularly known as Shi’ites, on Tuesday invaded the National Assembly and shot two policemen.

The sect members, who were protesting the continued incarceration of their leader, Ibrahim Zakzaky, that had been in detention since December, 2015, also attacked six other policemen at the National Assembly with stones and clubs.

It was learnt that the Shiite members overpowered the policemen at the gate of the National Assembly, collected one of their guns and shot the two security operatives.

  
They entered the main entrance popularly known as MOPOL gate and vandalised the gate house. They also burnt three vehicles and destroyed many others.

The sect unleashed terror on security operatives when tear-gas canisters were thrown to disperse them. There were fears among the National Assembly staff on Tuesday that one of the policemen, who were shot, had died.

But when contacted, the Federal Capital Territory Police spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, said no policeman died during the clash with the IMN members, He said, “We don’t have any casualty, no policeman died. Why would we hide such a thing? There was no casualty.”

He also denied that the IMN members seized a gun from a policeman. He said, “No police gun is missing, we have no record that the Shiite members snatched guns from our men.”

During the protest by the Shiites, there was pandemonium at the National Assembly as its gates were closed. Staff and visitors ran for dear lives during the clash between the sect and the police.

Visitors to the federal parliament were barred from entering the premises as of the time of filing this report.

Once the information filtered into the House of Representatives, which was still in plenary as of the time of the attack, the Speaker, Mr Femi Gbajabiamila, called for adjournment of the session.

He said, “We have to adjourn now for security and legislative reasons. Leader…” The Majority Leader, Alhassan Ado-Doguwa, moved a motion for adjournment, while the Minority Leader, Mr Ndudi Elumelu, seconded the motion.

The Speaker, other leaders and members of the House, after the plenary, visited the victims at the clinic.

While the National Assembly Clinic confirmed that seven persons were injured, most of whom were security men, a security source disclosed that the Divisional Police Officer, National Assembly Division, Mr Umar Sambo, had gunshot, knife cut and stone injuries.

Speaking with journalists, the Director of Medical Services, National Assembly, Dr Bashir Hamza, said seven victims were taken to the clinic, most of whom he said were policemen.

He said, “They were brought here as an emergency. As usual, when patients come like that we don’t have to confirm whether it is a staff member or a visitor; we just first of all rush to save the life.

“That was what had exactly done. As soon as they were brought in, we had doctors on the ground who quickly received them. They were other medical personnel also on the ground who attended to them.

“One of the patients had a cut which looked like knife cut on the head and was bleeding profusely. That was immediately attended to, to stop the bleeding. There was another one with gunshot wound on the left shoulder. It was quickly attended to too.

“In all the cases that we have seen – I think we have seen seven persons with various degrees of injury, we made sure that they were stabilised, with the exception of the first one that I mentioned who has been losing a lot of blood and has started becoming restless.

“In our medical knowledge, we know that people (patients) who start to become restless are getting out of control, probably the bleeding is much higher than we anticipated or there is internal bleeding in the head, because it is appearing (to be) swollen.

“That one is to be transferred to the Trauma Centre of the National Hospital (Abuja). That will be ensured because we have ambulances on the ground, ready for evacuation.

Asked about the profile of the persons attacked, the director said, “The majority are police officers. As we learnt, it was a protest. So, people who would try to go against a protest are usually police officers, except if you are unlucky to (have been) caught up between (them). The majority are police officers.”

Our investigations that some of the security personnel who were injured by protesting members of the IMN were admitted to the National Hospital in Abuja.

A source in the hospital said, “The security personnel were seriously injured and were immediately moved to the trauma centre on arrival. The management of the hospital had been placed on the alert before they were brought in. Their cases was emergency because the degree of the injuries was severe. Our team of experts immediately swung into action and they have stabilised.”

The Senate did not suspend plenary while the pandemonium lasted but its ad hoc committee on Media and Publicity addressed journalists on the issue.

The Chairman of the media panel, Senator Adedayo Adeyeye, said the Senate was worried about the development and had started discussing the porous security lapses with the National Assembly complex.

He said, “One of the issues we have discussed is the security within the National Assembly premises. It is a matter that is being looked at because parliaments across the world are not this porous.

“Be that as it may, we also recognise the fact that the National Assembly is a public place for all Nigerians. All Nigerians reserve the right if they follow proper channel and procedure to come in here and meet with their representatives.

“Where there are breaches in terms of procedure and regulations guiding such matter, the matter will be looked at inside the chamber.

Police arrest 40 Shi’ite members


The FCT police spokesman, in a statement later on Tuesday, said the command had arrested 40 members of the IMN who invaded the National Assembly and shot two policemen and an operative of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps.

He said the two policemen that were shot in the legs were recovering at the National Assembly clinic. According to him, the sect also attacked six other policemen with stones and clubs.

The Shi’ite members vandalized several vehicles as they attempted to take over the building, but they were resisted by the policemen and other security operatives on duty.

Our source observed a police team at Samuel Ademulegun Avenue, near the National Mosque, searching commercial buses in order to fish out the sect members.

The leader of the operation, an Assistant Commissioner of Police, whose name could not be ascertained, was seen with his team harassing commuters and other passersby.

The policemen, who were wielding sticks and rods, also prevented our correspondent from talking to about six suspects, including a child in their patrol van.

The FCT police spokesman, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, said in a statement that investigation had commenced into the attack.

He denied that the IMN members snatched police guns, adding that they were repelled by the police when they attempted to force their way into the NASS premises.

Manzah stated, “The group, which started its activity camouflaged in a peaceful procession, became violent and tried to force their way into the National Assembly.

“Police on the ground, however, acted proactively, professionally and used minimum force to disperse the unruly protesters.

“Forty members of the sect have been arrested in connection with the violent protest and investigation is in progress.”

The command explained that adequate measures had been put in place to prevent further security breaches.

Reps to debate Shi’ites attack on Wednesday

Meanwhile, it was learnt on Tuesday night that the attack on the National Assembly by the Shi’ites would be discussed at the plenary on Wednesday.

Efforts to get the Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, to react to the incident proved abortive.

A credible source in the office of the Speaker, who did not want to be named, disclosed that Gbajabiamila would raise the matter on the floor of the House.

“He doesn’t want to say anything because it will be raised on the floor,” the source said.

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered a 24-hour police surveillance in the FCT and its environs.

Similarly, the Commissioners of Police and their supervisory Assistant Inspectors- General of Police in states contiguous to the FCT were also placed on the alert to ensure maximum security in their respective Areas of responsibility to avert any possible breach of public safety and security.
The force spokesman, DCP Frank Mba, in a statement said the IG had ordered a speedy and diligent investigation into the incident as well as prompt prosecution of all the sect members in custody in connection with the incident.

It added, “The IG reiterated his displeasure with the unwarranted and unjustifiable attack and injury to nine police officers by members of the El-Zakzakky group and commended the restraint, maturity and professionalism displayed by Police personnel in containing the protest.”

Internet fraudster bags jail term in Kaduna
The Kaduna Zonal Office of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, has secured the conviction of one Emuze Omosigho Emmanuel (aka Thomas Brooks) for offences bordering on cheating.
Justice Darius Khobo of the Kaduna State High Court on July 8, 2019 found him guilty of the one-count charge preferred against him after he pleaded “guilty” to the charge.
A statement from the antigraft agency says Emuze;s journey to jail began when operatives acted on intelligence report indicating that he engages in fraudulent activities and had defrauded unsuspecting individuals of their hard-earned money.
The charge against him reads: “That you, Emuze Omosigho sometime in 2019 at Kaduna within the jurisdiction of the High Court of Kaduna State, did with intent to defraud attempted to commit an offence to wit: Cheating against one Julia Munoz of Lubbock, Texas, Martha French and Brenda Davis by sending them scam mails using your Instagram, FaceBook and plenty of phishing e-mail addresses posing as one Thomas Brooks, with the aim of obtaining financial benefit for yourself and thereby committed an offence contrary to Section 57 of the Kaduna State Penal Code Law, 2017 and punishable under the same Section.”
He along side his other conspirators forged and impersonated documents purportedly emanating from different organisations where they claimed to be engineers and members of other reputable occupation.
Following his guilty plea, counsel for the EFCC, S.H Sa'ad, informed the court of the plea bargain agreement between the prosecution and the defence.
He was thereafter, sentenced to one year in prison with an option of N100,000 fine.
