Nigerian man ‘drops in’ on raiding officers

JOHOR BARU: A Nigerian man fell from a ceiling and broke his leg in an attempt to escape from Immigration officers who raided a house in Taman Johor Jaya here.

The man, together with three other Nigerians, were nabbed for not having passports to show they had entered the country legally.

An Immigration department spokesman said the officers seized more than 80 electronic products believed to be stolen items in the 6pm incident on Sunday.

Nabbed: The Nigerians were detained during the raid in a house at Taman Johor Jaya in Johor Baru, Johor, on Sunday.

The four suspects, aged 26 to 35, were hiding in the ceiling when 20 enforcement officers raided the house.

The spokesman said one suspect fell through the ceiling and broke his leg.

The injured suspect was later sent to the hospital.
