Senate probes death of Nigerian in Malaysia

Vanguard : "THE Senate yesterday commenced moves to unravel the circumstances that led to the killing and the abandonment of the corpse of a Nigerian student, Lawrence Nwankwo in Malaysia two years ago. The investigation stemmed from the condemnation of the unresolved murder and the alleged indifference of the Nigerian mission in Malaysia on the issue.

The motion drawing attention to the murder of Nwankwo of Umuneochi Local Government area of Abia State by unknown assassins in Malaysia in February, 2006 was raised by Senator Uche Chukwumerije (PPA, Abia North)."
