Nigerian man found murdered due to love triangle, say police

KUALA LUMPUR: A 36-year-old Nigerian man was murdered due to a love triangle involving a Malaysian woman, says Kuala Lumpur police chief Comm Datuk Saiful Azly Kamaruddin.

He said that the man was found dead at a condominium unit in Jalan Kuching on Sept 23 with wounds on his neck, face and arms.

"After two weeks, we managed to detain the main suspect in front of the Nigerian High Commission.

“The 34-year-old man was the victim's housemate and was attempting to seek protection from the embassy," he told a press conference at the Sentul police headquarters on Monday (Oct 19).

Comm Saiful thanked the Nigerian High Commission for its assistance in nabbing the suspect.

He added that another Nigerian man and a Malaysian woman were also detained to assist the investigation.

"We believe the motive behind the murder was a misunderstanding involving the Malaysian woman, and we believe that the suspect and victim were both attracted to the woman, ” said Comm Saiful.

He said that the main suspect was charged on Oct 13, while two others have been released on witness bonds.
