ASABA – A Nigerian inmate identified as Odemu Efe, has died of an undisclosed ailment at the Kaliti Prisons in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The deceased was among the about 150 abandoned Nigerians at the prison facility who are being detained and awaiting trial in the African country over unproven allegations of possession of hard drugs and money laundering.

A  Nigerian, Miss Chika Nwachukwu had, two months ago, raised the alarm over the poor condition of the inmates, a development that prompted officials of the Federal Government to assure that the inmates were not abandoned.

This came as diplomatic sources disclosed that several of the inmates had fallen ill recently, apparently due to malnourishment as they are allegedly fed once a day on a meal of white rice, without sauce, all year round.

It was learned that Efe, who is said to have hailed from Warri area of Delta State, died on July 13 as a result of poor medication when he took ill.

Sources said all efforts to draw the attention of the Nigerian officials to his deteriorating condition did not yield the desired results.

Accusing Nigerian officials of showing lack of concern about the welfare of the inmates in the foreign land, a source said there was lack of commitment on the part of the home government to facilitate their repatriation even when the Ethiopian authorities were willing to release the inmates.

The source said: “As we speak, some inmates are very sick and they are not getting good Medicare. 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.

“Most of them are willing to be responsible for any cost incurred in the process, and they are also ready to face trial at home for the alleged offences for which they are being detained.”

The source appealed to the chairman of South East Governors’ Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi to mobilise stakeholders in the region to free the inmates, disclosing that over eighty percent of them are from the South East.

I would have posted this in the crime section, but the truth is that it is a political issue, and I will prove it.

These Nigerians are languishing in Ethiopian jail without Nigeria caring to check whether any of them is innocent of any crimes. You see, it doesn't matter to Nigerian officials, because these people are from the wrong side of the country. Again, I will prove this asserting...

Remember when a Nigerian lady(from Northern Nigeria) was about to be executed in Saudi Arabia?
Remember the speed with which the Buhari government officials raced to rescue and bring her home? Yep!

Such speed would be good for ALL Nigerians facing one form of incineration or the other abroad.
The is the DUTY of home governments. But Nigeria? Nope!

In Nigeria, "all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others".

Eastern Nigerians (current South East and South South geopolitical zones) get different treatment from the Nigerian government anytime their people get into trouble abroad.
It is as if Nigerian government has a grouse against these Nigerians.
It is as if the Nigerian missions abroad have been instructed to punish and frustrate those Nigerians as much as possible.
I know that Northern Nigeria has a huge diaspora in the Sudan (northern Sudan), and I doubt that the Nigerian diplomatic mission in Sudan is as nonchalant with Nigerians in Sudan.
I know I have never read any news that alluded to that.

It is exactly for this reason that the Biafran agitation is gaining momentum in South South and South East of Nigeria. I know that the most vocal Biafrans online today are from Delta State (Urhobo specifically), and things like this is why the agitation is spreading like wildfire. Human beings naturally hate injustice!

Human beings are naturally driven to pursue a cause of justice.
Nigeria has never demonstrated a willingness to extend justice to the peoples of the above mentioned regions in Nigeria, and the proof is very simple. Take this case for example!

So, if you never knew or understood why the peoples from that region are agitating constantly for separation from Nigeria, NOW YOU KNOW!

Nepotism... That's apparently the big elephant in the room, every well meaning citizen of Nigeria will attest to this.

Another one, is that unless you are one of them (the cluster of treacherous locusts feasting on every good thing in/about the country) or you're a tool in their hands or a very useful weapon in their arsenal, they actually do not care if you live or die. This is one more reason why Nigerians "allegedly" accused on foreign land are dying in captivity while our government officials are making merry in their home towns.

THEY DON'T REALLY CARE ABOUT US!

Once they can line up their purses with cursed loots, set up their offsprings to take over after them, cause unending chaos among citizens - they think they are cool like that.

Things will change, soon, I hope!
