Nigerian Abroad Jumps From 2nd Floor Building After Hearing News of Parent’s Death Back Home

A devastated Nigerian national living in New Delhi, India, identified as Ndinojuo, attempted to commit suicide after hearing news of his parents’ deaths.

The Nigerian jumped from a 2nd floor building and sustained serious injuries.

He was rushed to a hospital and is said to be stable.

According to the police, the 37-year-old Ndinojuo got information on March 18 that his father and mother had died in an accident back in his homeland of Nigeria.

He was suffering from depression and this news distressed him. He could not cope with the tragedy and jumped from the second floor of the building, the Deputy Commissioner of Police (Outer) Harendra Kumar Singh said.

The incident took place in outer Delhi’s Nihal Vihar area. The youth jumped from the second floor of a building. After receiving information from the locals, police rushed to the spot and found him lying in an injured condition.

Ndinojuo is being treated at the Sanjay Gandhi Memorial Hospital and is recovering now, the officials at Nihar Vihar police station said.

The police have launched an investigation into the incident. Statements of neighbours were also recorded who corroborated the victim’s statement. The officials said no foul play was suspected during the primary enquiry.

Meanwhile, the Cyber Crime Wing of Greater Chennai Police busted a gang of Nigerian nationals which allegedly cheated many businessmen in the city and elsewhere in the State by promising good returns on their investment.

The police arrested four of them who were operating in Kharghar, a suburb of Navi Mumbai and brought them to the city.

The police said Okories Godswill Sainasa, 32, Uche John Imeka, 47, Godwin Immanuel, 32, and Eposie Uchenna Stanley, 32, were from Nigeria. They worked in teams and contacted the businessmen first through LinkedIn, said the police.

One of the teams with a fake profile picture of a white woman in the name of Nora Morrison from Canada on WhatsApp status approached the victim, a businessman from Kolathur. She claimed to be the Chief Executive Officer of a Canada-based pharmaceutical firm and offered good commission for supplying herbal oil. Then the others got in touch with her.

The businessman made online transfers in December 2022 for ₹33 lakh to the account mentioned by fraudsters towards procuring oil from Delhi and supplying it to Canada. He did not receive any commission as promised and he lost his money as the business proponents went incommunicado.

Following a complaint, a special team of police led by Cyber Crime Wing inspector T. Vinodhkumar analysed the call records, mails and other electronic communications and traced down the suspects near Mumbai.

Mr. Vinodh Kumar said: “Our team conducted an investigation for 10 days with help of Navi Mumbai police and searched the house of suspects in Kharghar police station limits and arrested four of them.”

Explaining the modus operandi of the gang, the officer said it had four teams posing as the executives, purchase managers, suppliers and quality control. In reality, all teams were Nigerian nationals operating from a home in Navi Mumbai. They never made video calls or voice calls to victims in Chennai. They mainly targeted people in import-export business and who had registered their details on business portals and social media platforms, he said.
