“Thousands of Nigerians are being killed in Ghana Prisons”, Nigerian Prisoner cried out!

A Nigerian sentenced to life imprisonment in one of the Ghana Prisons has cried out asking the Nigerian Government to intervene and save Nigerians that are being imprisoned unjustly and killed across Ghana Prisons on daily basis.

The prisoner whose name is Emmanuel according to a reliable source had been sentenced to 135years behind bars said thousands of young Nigerians are being tried and incarcerated for crimes they never committed and never being given a fair trial in the court of Law before they are sentenced.

Read his Statement below:

My name is Emmanuel Emeka, a prisoner in Ankaful maximum security prison, Cape Coast, Ghana. I’m serving a jail-term of 130yrs imprisonment and I’m presently in my 8th year.

We appeal to the Nigerian Government to please come to our aid.

The condition here has been so unbearable for (we) Nigerian prisoners in Ghana.

We need to reconnect with our families. The Ghanaian police are fond of arresting innocent Nigerians, giving them high priso sentence of 50yrs,70yrs, 100yrs, 150yrs to 200yrs.

Most of us have spent about 8yrs, 10yrs, 15yrs, 17yrs and 20yrs inside the prisons and some have died inside the prison without completing their jail-term. Our families are in the dark, they really don’t know what we are facing. We’ve spent a lot of money trying to appeal in court, but all is to no avail.

Within my 8years in prison, I have witnessed over 100 deaths of Nigerian citizens in the Ghana prison and most of their families are not even aware. Their families would still keep the hope of their return without knowing they are dead and buried with no rites.

We appeal to the Government of
Nigeria to please act on our behalf so we won’t continue to perish in this peril.

There are many Nigerians in all the 46 prisons in Ghana that need help from the Nigerian Government.

I also beg the media: kindly keep spreading the message until it finally grips the attention of the able government.

To fellow citizens of Nigeria, our brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers, please continue to pray for us and do what you can to return us back home.

Another sad part is that most of us are on
sick bed, no drugs for us. This is the unseen hardship Nigerian citizens in all the prisons in Ghana are facing and myself inclusive. I’ve been sick for the past 2 months and they have not taken me to the hospital or give me any drug. They treat us like animals, they give us dry garri everyday, no access to communication. I know how I suffered to get this phone to send this message to you.

Please, helping us to pass on this message lies the survival of about 800 to 1000 Nigerian prisoners in the 46 prisons in Ghana who are in this type of high sentence.

Please help us spread the message to all the four corners of Nigeria to campaign for our freedom because that is the only hope left for us.

We at dotunroy.com are appealing and pleading on behalf of these Nigerians that the Federal Government should look into this case and repertriate these young and vibrant Nigerians back to their home country, so that they can be saved and rebuild their lives afresh.
