Nigerians came out in numbers to protest at the embassy in Malaysia after a wrongfully arrested PhD student, Thomas Orhionsefe Ewansiha, died in immigration detention camp.
According to reports, Thomas was arrested by the Malaysian immigration officers during a recent raid in Amapuri and was taken to a deportation camp in Jalan Duta, despite having valid documents.
He, however, died while the officers were verifying his paper ahead of his release, which led to a massive protest at the Malaysian embassy.
Nigerian veteran singer, John Asiemo, widely known as Daddy Showkey in his reaction to the incident, said a message he received revealed that this is not the first time authorities at the Nigerian Embassy have failed to act on the alleged continuous violation of rights of Nigerians in Malaysia.
