    A Tongan Member of Parliament said her first cousin Alo Ngata was a family guy and had a lot of respect to his siblings and relatives.

    MP Akosita Lavulavu said Ngata, who died in Auckland last week after Police tasered him multiple times, was a dear brother to them all.

    “He is the kind of person who would accept anybody with open arms, respected the elderly, and you could always count on him to make you smile and be happy,” MP Lavulavu said.

    “He was a joyful character.

    “A huge loss to our Ngata Family. Most of us still can’t even get over the fact that he has passed on.

    “We are grieving in so much pain because of our loss, our love and greatest memories of not only a son, but a brother, an uncle and soon to be father.

    The memories of Alo will always be in our hearts. He was a blessing to us all. and he will surely be missed.”

    A wake was being held tonght at 11 Bolderwood place, Wiri for Ngata.

    His body will be laid to rest tomorrow at the Manukau Memorial Garden, Papatoetoe.

    According to his Facebook, Ngata studied “Criminology” at Tangaroa College.

    He was arrested on Sunday allegedly violently assaulting an elderly person in Auckland’s Freemans Bay.

    Police said he was found kicking the victim in the head several times as he lay unconscious.

    Ngata then “lunged” towards the officers before he was Tasered multiple times.

    “During the arrest process the offender violently struggled, which required two more back-up officers to assist to apply necessary restraints and a spit hood,” Superintendent Karyn Malthus said.
