A Nigerian man, identified as Chukwueze has died after he was allegedly tortured by immigration officials over expired visa and documents in Indonesia.
According to SaharaReporters, Nigerians living in the country are allegedly being arrested and forced to pay ₦450,000 before they are released.
This unlawful extortion is said to be a daily reoccurrence aimed mainly at Nigerians.
“We are passing through hell here in Indonesia. The immigration officials are killing us because of expired visa. They come into our houses to arrest us and force us to pay N450, 000.
If you don’t pay the money, they will ask you to call your relatives to raise the money.
Last Monday, one Nigerian died in their custody because he had no money to pay. He died due to the torture he was subjected to by immigration officers,” a source said.
Recall that some Nigerians recently staged a protest at the Nigeria Embassy in Jakarta over alleged discrimination and targeted raids by Indonesian immigration officers.
