A 26-year-old Nigerian man, Kumbha Roderick serving a jail term in India has been reported dead.

Kumbha Roderick was arrested on September 30, 2018 by police for offences relating to  forging documents “for purpose of cheating”.

He has been in prison for almost a year now, according to officials in charge of the detention facility.
