Nigerian Student in Malaysia Beaten to Death for Alleged Attempted Rape




A Nigerian student in Malaysia died on Wednesday after being beaten to death by an angry mob for allegedly trying to rape a woman in an elevator.

The incident took place at Flora Damansara apartments, and it was the residents who beat up the deceased, MalayMailOnline reports.

One of the police investigators handling the case gave the following account:

“We received a call from the security manager of the apartment who informed us of the incident.

When police arrived at 8.20pm, the suspect was surrounded by 20 to 30 people and his hands were tied.

The policemen were told the suspect had attempted to rape a woman inside a lift.

The victim put up a fight and screamed for help as the lift door opened and several men who were in the area caught the suspect.

The suspect was then taken to the police station at 8.45pm.

He was fine and he even walked into the station accompanied by policemen.

The victim, accompanied by a man, also went to the police station and filed a report.

The victim identified the suspect as the man who attacked her.

While waiting to be put in a holding cell, the suspect was handcuffed and lying on the floor.

However, we found him unconscious when one of the officers checked on him. A medical officer examined the suspect and pronounced him dead.

The suspect had injuries on the right side of his head, and had scratch marks on his legs and hands.

We are waiting for a post mortem report.”

    This story does not sound right.. So, the supposedly attempted rapist was taken to a police station, cuffed & put in a holding cell only to end up dead? The Malaysian police are no different from our own finest NPF…

      When an African immigrant rapes one of their own (I doubt that they care about “allegedly”), no they probably aren’t that different. Nigerians need to behave themselves when they go abroad, knowing fully well what people think of us.

    I hope the family of the victim takes legal action against these murderers and may the Lord give them the strength to bear the loss. So sad!

    @Everyone, to be very sincere this story does not add up. many of us have lived abroad or travelled and can understand the stigma that some of these countries associate to Africans. This could be a complete false accusation. I don’t know the mind of rapist but in the elevator??? This can open at anytime for goodness sakes. The guy may have been explaining his innocence but no one would listen.

    Most of these low life countries just have hatred for blacks especially the muslim dominated ones like Malaysia, Kuwait, Qatar etc.

    The problem Africa is facing as a continent is bad governance and lack of economic sustainability for its citizens and this has forced many to rush abroad to seek redemption where there is non.
