What We Are Going Through In Togo – Nigerian Prisoners Seek Repatriation
Comments Off on What We Are Going Through In Togo – Nigerian Prisoners Seek Repatriation | | April 16, 2018 12:52 PM

Nigerians serving jail terms in Lome, Togo Republic have cried out over what they are passing through at the neighboring country, revealing that where they are being kept is like a concentration camp.

Disclosing that most Nigerians in Togolese prisons are business people, the Diasporans stated that Togolese authorities hate Nigerians to the latter, adding that Nigerians are thrown into prison for years without judgment for every little offence.

Citing an example, they stated that while Togolese are handed 2 to 5 years for drug offence, Nigerians residing there get sentenced to between 10 to 15 years for the same crime.

The prisoners of Nigerian extraction expressed their ordeal in a statement signed on their behalf by one Yemi, which was sent to DAILY POST, disclosed that while imprisoned, they (the prisoners) are the ones feeding themselves.

Begging that they want their cries to get to the Nigerian government, the prisoners expressed readiness to be repatriated “to our country Nigeria to serve our jail their even if it will be more harder than here”.

The statement from Yemi read in part, “We want Nigerians and Nigerian government to be aware of this. We are feeding ourselves here in the prison.

“We are dying one after another, as of last month one Mr Charles died due to non medical attention despite the money we the Nigerian prisoners contributed and gave to the authorities of the prison for his treatment. Many Nigerians have died since four years I entered into this Togo prison without judgement.”
