Various Nigerians who are currently detained in prison in Kenya are calling on the federal government to come to their aid. According to reports, some of the inmates are being held in custody over minor offences.
Prince Gwamnishu Harrison, the CEO Behind Bars Initiative who is currently in Nairobi, the country’s capital, paid a visit to the prisoners who narrated their ordeals.
Below is what he wrote on his social media page;
Today 8th March, 2018, I rounded up my “Prison Fame Project” (Season One) in Kenya. I felt it will be unjust to come back to Nigeria without facilitating the release of young Nigerians languishing behind bars. Among all that i screened, only one got my attention but others deserved our mercy.
Alexander Onyia from Onicha Uchie Ndokwa East L.G.A Delta State went to the police station and pleaded to them to help deport him back to Nigeria that he can’t afford to purchase his flight ticket and his passport Visa will expire in few weeks. Alexander said he was detained and sent to Prison. (short Video clip attached).
For me to secure their release (16 Inmates), I will have to pay close to 32,000 Kenyan shillings (One Hundred and Six Thousand Naira- N106,000.
Do you have anyone in Government who can help facilitate Alexander deportation and others who have Visa issues?
Do you wish to support financially to pay for option of fines of these young Nigerians languishing behind bars?
Please share this post to get the attention of Federal Government and Delta State Government.
