The two Nigerian men who were detained for the murder of two women in Taman Usahawan, Kepong, have been released on Saturday as police said that investigations on them have been completed. One of them was re-arrested and remanded for 14 days as he did not possess valid travel documents.

The 35-year-old chef suspect was brought to the flat in Taman Usahawan yesterday at 2pm, together with investigating officer and the forensics unit. The suspect was then taken to his house, which was a flat in a four-storey shoplot that was just behind the victims’ flat.

Police seized a shirt and a pair of pants, believed to have been worn by the suspect on the day of the murders.

The chef was finally brought to a confectionary shop owned by murder victim Ang Chin Ping, aged 36, where a mobile phone was seized.

It is believed that the chef was a business partner of the confectionary shop. In addition, the chef was possibly rejected by Ang as he expressed his love for her on the day of the murders.

Last Tuesday when the chef went to the Sentul police headquarters to take his statement, the interviewing police officer saw scratch marks on his arms and hands. When he was unable to explain, he was immediately arrested.
