Nov 7, 2013 – Indian Drug Dealer Who Stabbed A Nigerian To Death In Goa Arrested

On Wednesday November 6th, 2013, Indian Police confirm the arrest of a Goan native who allegedly stabbed a Nigerian man to death in the holiday state.

The suspect, who is in his mid-30s, was detained on Tuesday night in north Goa, accused of being part of a gang who stabbed the Nigerian to death last week, a senior police official told AFP.

Further arrests were expected soon, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Tensions have been rising in the western resort state since the man was found dead on October 30, with police blaming the killing on rivalry between local and Nigerian drug traffickers.

The arrest came after Nigeria told India on Tuesday that it feared for the safety of its nationals in Goa and called for immediate action against those behind the killing.

Goan police arrested 53 Nigerians last week after around 200 of them staged a protest against the killing, chasing a police hearse carrying the corpse of the dead Nigerian and putting the body on the road.

Following the demonstration, which blocked Goa’s main highway for several hours, Goa’s Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar asked police to track down Nigerians living illegally in the former Portuguese colony so they could be deported.

After the protest, a minister in the state’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party government, Dayanand Mandrekar, stirred more controversy by saying: “Nigerians are like cancer”.

Nigeria’s High Commission issued a diplomatic note and demanded on Tuesday that the security of its nationals be assured.

The Indian government said it was in touch with Abuja and added Nigeria has sought an official probe.

“Obviously the Nigerian High Commission is concerned and there is a sense of anguish at what may have happened to some of their nationals,” Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Syed Akbaruddin said.

“They have requested a thorough investigation and asked us to bring to book those who are involved in the death of the Nigerian national and the consequent issues that followed,” he told reporters in Delhi.

The spokesman said the Goa state government had promised a report on the matter tomorrow.

May the soul of that innocent man rest in peace.

  5. If the plead was for Nigeria citizens to come together and help build Nigeria through any possible means it could be understandable,if you are comfortable in whatever world you live in why risk it for what you don’t know the outcome?A friend of mine told me she is never coming back to naija and i almost broke the friendship,but now I feel like getting her a bottle of a very expensive wine and asking for her forgiveness.if you are comfortable with life outside Nigeria pls I beg you in the name of God stay put.in America a security man that works in a mall just 8hours a day is as richer than a good business man in my naija becasehe gets his checks every 2weeks,that’s twice amonth,no story,good road,security,intact since my stay in America I have never ever seen any black out not even for 2seconds.in fact the homeless people you see sleeping on the street to receive their check from American govt twice in a month,why on earth will you leave such place if I may ask,if you can go to school here,you are very sure of getting a job even when you know nobdy,you can have 3jobs at a time without feeling it because everything is made in a way that you do it at your own time and can drop the jobs when you feel like and still get a better one when you are ready.why on earth will you leave such place my sisters,what really makes me sweat in my hair and ear is that my Nigeria. is richer than the America that does all this to her citizens and other aliens in her start,but the sons and daughters of master minded harded criminals,born on the day my Lord and God were on a break vowed that Nigeria will never be what she wad meant to be.sorry for the long tale,once again if you are comfortable wherever you are,pls don’t make the mistake of ever leaving there unless Nigeria govt is soaked I bleach and and washed clean,just visit and go back to your life because they will fight and kill you both physical when you try to bring better changes to nigeria.MAY GOD HELP US.

  6. In Nigeria the word do you who i am or whose son i am gets you out of jail but here it gets you additional jail time,you get a job you are qualify to get without paying in cash or kind,cops don’t take bribe,everybody have eqaul right,hitting like fuel subsidy,unlimited water flow,student loan that’s real and not paper decoration,jobs for the masses not family members,protection of citizens life even outside her state,nobody is above the law not even Obama or Bush,the list just goes on but is centred on disciple and proper management which is a big crime in Nigeria and can attract jail sentence for doing the right thing.this will never stop because people under the power are waiting for their time to to worst and if am to make the mistake of touching that power,your guess is right if it’s Red will sell Nigeria,or colonized her again.let our leaders lead us into a better Nigeria that is there under the cover of their billion dollar greed and see dead Nigerians buried in foreign land and the living back in Nigeria within 2weeks.set Nigeria free heartless monsters and see her kids living in peace and harmony in her land because poverty is more deadly than cancer,AIDS,diabetics and all STD disease put together.

  7. India of all countries,wetin person dey find go there,that smelling,disease infested land with so much poverty and sicknesses,na wa for nigerians,all in the name of i dey abroad,rubbish.
