June 1st, 2016 – Picture: 4 Desperate Nigerians, Stowaways Who Smuggled Themselves Into Malaysia-Bound Cargo Ship Arrested
4 Nigerians, who smuggled themselves into a Malaysia-bound cargo vessel have been arrested. The stowaways are 24-year-old Ahmed Azeez, 33-year-old Tunde Yagba, 33-year-old Ajose Kehinde and 25-year-old Adewale Sunday.
The suspects all indigenes of Snake Island village behind Tincan Island Port, Lagos stole a canoe under the cover of darkness and paddled to a Malaysian-bound cargo ship MV Maersk Casablanca.
Police AIG, Maritime Police Command Muhammed Katsina said:
“The vessel was berthed at Tincan Island Port. They trespassed into the vessel. They dived into the water and sneaked through the propeller into the manhole, where they hid themselves in a small compartment.
“Exactly 23 hours after the ship had sailed, my intelligence group from the Amphibious Ambush Squad (AAS), alerted me of the presence of some strange elements in the vessel. We quickly alerted our operatives at Onne Port, in collaboration with the men of the Nigerian Immigration Service (NIS) who played a commendable role and they were found and arrested. One of them (Adewale) was bleeding profusely as a result of injury he sustained in the process while sneaking into the vessel.”
Adewale is currently admitted at an hospital in Lagos because of an ulcerous wound.

I believe that these runaway grown up guys doesn’t do their homework very well about Malaysia before their dumb and foolish action. They are very lucky that they were caught here in Nigeria before the cargo ship takeoff, if not, they would have all died before the ship gets to its final destination. As it is today in Nigeria, we are far better than Malaysia in many ways, most importantly, the way and manner those a Malaysian people hate us with a passion should discourage anyone from going there illegally or legally. There is no business or education opportunities in Malaysia that our youths can benefit from. Knowledge is powerful, and is a great light on the path of those that depend on God’s provisions and guidance.

Great talk from Omokehinde. To take it a notch further, Malaysia and in deed the whole of southeast Asia is no destination for a jobless man. If individuals who have genuine businesses are sweating it out in those harsh countries, what slim chances do the jobless have! The problem is that the Nigerian youth is proud and misinformed. But again, he is also desperate. Assuming that he nurses no criminal intents, he gets out of the country by all means and enters another, only to start doing those menial jobs he could not stoop down to do here in Nigeria. I wonder when all this would change.

********* @ Omokehinde. This is the result of the govt of your most clueless illiterate gallivanting so called fulani herdsman president.
With all your praises and defences for him, how are you feeling now? With this kind of your so called president, you dont have to blame anyone trying to escape to Togo, Congo or any parts of the world for a greener pasture.
Your president is the reason behind the present Nigeria woes before you start apportioning blames on GEJ as you always do and known for.
Under this you fulani man‘s watch, fuel is now N145, prices of commodity has sky-rocketedly gone up. Fulani herdsmen menace preventing farmers to go about their normal business when they themselves are so weak to farm. No light, no job, no prompt salary. After 1yr in office the only thing he did was to go register Nigeria in Organisation of Islamic Countries (IOC) Rubbish.
I take a stroll…
