Nigerian man runs faster than Usain Bolt to escaped being arrested in Malaysia (Photos/video)

Published

Malaysia Police on Sunday, August 6, picked up a total of 409
foreigners including Nigerians and busted a passport-forging syndicate
masterminded by a Pakistani man in the first large-scale joint operation
led by Bukit Aman Special Branch Counter Terrorism Division.

About 200 law enforcement officers hit the streets to nab foreigners
linked to international terror groups, those without valid documents and
those suspected of illegal activities.

Public buses were also stopped for checks and in one instance, a
Nigerian man ran so fast to escape that bystanders commented that he was
faster than Usain Bolt. However, Police personnel managed to catch him,
although it took five of them to overpower him. (As seen in the picture
and video)

Counter Terrorism Division head, Deputy Commissioner Datuk Ayob Khan,
later confirmed that the operation was held as part of preparations for
the 2017 SEA Games, which starts on Aug 19.

Concentrating on the city centre around Jalan Masjid India, security
personnel in full tactical gear were not only armed but also equipped
with radionuclide identification devices (RID) to detect radioactive
material.

Counter Terrorism Division officers, along with their comrades from
other units such as the Special Action Unit, General Operations Force
Tiger Platoon and Traffic Investigation and Enforcement Department, took
part.

Other agencies involved were the Immigration Department, Atomic
Energy Licensing Board, National Registration Department and Interpol.

In a raid on the Menara City One condominium in Jalan Munshi
Abdullah, multiple enforcement teams made their way from the top and
lowest floors simultaneously, with armed officers at stairwells to block
escape routes.

Most residents cooperated when the authorities came knocking, with
documents in hand for verification. Those who ignored the knocks soon
had their doors and locks broken. Some units where the occupants refused
to cooperate were found to be full of foreigners with incomplete papers
or none at all.

Police also detected fake passport-makers and seized some RM54,000
(S$17,154) along with 70 passports, including 67 Indian passports, and a
machine used to forge immigration stickers.

Resident Annuar Amin, 43, said he was shocked to see dozens of
suspects tied up at the apartment courtyard as they awaited processing.

“I was about to go back upstairs, but I saw people being rounded up,”
he said. “Then I heard loud noises, so I decided to just wait below
until everything was over.”

Deputy Commissioner Ayob said the 409 foreigners detained were brought back to the police headquarters for further screening.

“They were from Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Indonesia, Myanmar, Oman, Yemen and Nigeria, among others,” he said.

“We held those suspected of being involved in terrorism activities.
The others were handed over to Immigration for offences under their
jurisdiction
(The op) is focused on the Klang Valley. Our top goal is to nab foreign terrorist elements.

“We are being proactive in dealing with possible threats.”

Deputy Commissioner Ayob also said the operation did not detect any
radioactive material, but his division will continue to use RID in
future operations.

“Given that terrorists are becoming more creative in using
radioactive devices, we have to be equipped with the right tools,” he
said.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
