Nigerian Man Dies In Ethiopian Prison

A Nigerian inmate at the Kaliti Prisons in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia has died after an undisclosed ailment. Efe was among the about 150 inmates of Nigerian descents at the prison facility.

It was learnt that they are being detained on allegations of possession of hard drugs and money laundering. He died on July 13 as a result of poor medication after he took ill.

A concerned Nigerian, Miss Chika Nwachukwu, accused Nigerian officials of showing lack of concern about the welfare of the inmates in foreign lands. She alleged that there was lack of commitment on the part of the home government to facilitate their repatriation even when the Ethiopian authorities are willing to release the inmates.

“As we speak, some inmates are very sick and they are not getting good medical attention. Nobody knows whether they will survive since Odemu died in similar condition. “The Federal Government should please activate the relevant ministries and agencies to bring succour to these citizens languishing in foreign land by bringing them back home.
