By Masterweb News Desk
Iloagusi Colleens Chidubem, a Nigerian resident in India, was on Wednesday arrested by Indian police for assault at the Nigerian embassy in New Delhi. Chidubem allegedly hit Mohammed Hussain, a senior official at the embassy with a stone on the head. An Indian police officer speaking to the press said: "We received a complaint from the Nigerian high commission and have registered a case. We are investigating the matter."
According to the First Information Report (FIR), Mohammad Hussain was on Tuesday, October 11 informed by security at the embassy that someone wanted to see the High Commissioner. Hussain stepped out to meet the visitor who identified himself as Iloagusi Colleens Chidubem, but was forced to call the police after Chidubem became aggressive. According to Hussain in the FIR, the embassy offered the accused Rs 500 ($10.20) after he said he had not eaten anything all day long and told him to go home. The embassy called the police after Chidubem refused to leave the embassy according to Hussain's statement. The police forced Chidubem to leave the embassy. ( Continues below..... )

Chidubem came back the following day, October 12 and again demanded to see the High Commissioner and a scuffle broke out between him and the security guards. According to Hussain in the FIR, he spoke to Chidubem over the phone but could not understand him as he spoke Igbo (a local dialect in Nigeria). That prompted Hussain to come out to meet the accused who hit him on the head with a stone. The guards overpowered and detained him until police arrived to arrest him.
A First Information Report (FIR) is a written statement or report prepared by the police in India, Japan and Pakistan when they are contacted with information on the commission of a cognizable offence. It is called the First Information Report because it is a report of information that reaches the police first in point of time of the commission of a cognizable offence. It is a complaint lodged with the police orally, in writing or by phone by victims of cognizable offences, or by someone representing them.
