The attention of the leadership of Urhobo Progressive Union(UPU),Asia has been drawn to a most inhuman practice of forced prostitution,where young girls particularly of urhobo origin are lured to Malaysia(Asia) with the promise of greener pastures and furthering their education most times by some unscrupulous elements that have constituted themselves into a cartel solely for this despicable practice.

For the avoidance of doubt and in the interest of the general public,we want to say human trafficking,be it for forced labor or sexual slavery or commercial sexual exploitation is not part of the Urhobo DNA and culture and this practice is unethical to the dignity and culture of the Urhobo nation. We strongly condemn it.

As a responsible group UPU(Asia) will not hesitate to report to the authorities any case of human trafficking it has knowledge of for proper action and we encourage any present victim in Malaysia to contact UPU so that they can be set free and assisted to settle here legally or be sent back to Nigeria and set up for a better life.

In this regard,we urge our members to dissociate themselves from this unwholesome practice and those involved in it. This is without prejudice to further steps we shall take to preserve the integrity of the Urhobo nation.

To effectively eradicate trafficking of Urhobo daughters for prostitution, i have constituted a five man committee to ensure a total stop to this madness.

Anyone who continues to traffic Urhobo girls to Malaysia for prostitution should consider their investment as a total loss as the union will work with the Nigerian embassy and the authorities in Nigeria to fish out those girls and have them deported back to Nigeria with no room for negotiations or any form of compensation.

The president also appointed a five men committee names

Mr Dafe Tobele
Mr Bright Ukoriagba
Mr Salvation eferiaka
Mr Nicholas Asanimor
Mr Innocent Eguriase

state that their appointment is effective immediatly

Olorogun Ejiro Omonemu
President UPU (Asia)

“The cost can be reduced if their travel documents can be prepared quickly,” Immigration director-general Khairul Dzaimee Daud told reporters at a home affairs ministry Hari Raya celebration.
As of June 18, there were 9,654 illegal immigrants – 7,650 men, 1,664 women and the rest children – at the centres.
They come from Indonesia (3,767), Myanmar (2,105), Bangladesh (1,594), India (525), Vietnam (294), Pakistan (263), Thailand (226), the Philippines (222), Nepal (193), Nigeria (150) and others (315).
Khairul said his department has conducted 8,277 enforcement exercises and checked the documents of 103,224 foreigners this year.
He said four depots – in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur; KLIA, Sepang; Lenggeng, Negeri Sembilan; and Juru, Penang – are congested.
“We are trying to speed up the process of sending them home as well as transferring some to nearby depots to prevent overcrowding,” he said.

Siti Kharina's murder: Nigerian man remanded 7 days

Siti Kharina's murder: Nigerian man remanded 7 days

SEPANG: The Nigerian man arrested in connection with the murder of Siti Kharina Mohd Kamarudin, the chief nurse of Serdang Hospital on Saturday, was remanded for seven days from today.

The remand order was issued by Sepang Court Magistrate A Akhiruddin@Boy Acho until May 23 to assist the police in their investigation of the case under the Section 302 of the Penal Code for murder.
The handcuffed suspect clad in blue denim shirt, arrived at the courthouse here at 11am.

The 36-year-old was nabbed at 3.30pm yesterday at a cafe in Cheras Sentral, within 24 hours after Siti Kharina's body being found.

Based on initial investigation, the suspect was the last individual who was seen leaving the victim's house through a closed circuit television (CCTV) camera.
Two other suspects; a 38-year-old Pakistani and 35-year-old Nigerian woman who were arrested in connection with the case, had been remanded for seven days from Thursday onwards.

The partially clothed body of the forty-year-old nurse who went missing on May 8, was found dead with slash wounds on her chest, neck and head in her rented one-bedroom studio apartment unit in Third Avenue Condominium in Cyberjaya on May 15.
Siti Kharina’s body was discovered after investigating officers responded to a report made by the unit’s landlord who had spotted blood trail flowing out from the door.

The landlord had gone to the unit with the intention of repairing a faulty washing machine.
He was, however, unable to get in as it was locked and he sought the assistance from the condominium’s maintenance team to gain access.
Previously, Serdang Hospital had confirmed that Siti Kharina was last seen at the parking lot of the hospital at about 4pm last Wednesday.
