Illegal Migration: 10,000 Nigerians Die Crossing Mediterranean Sea, Desert

Featured Image

At least 10,000 Nigerians have died between January and May 2017 while trying to illegally migrate through the Mediterranean Sea and the deserts, the Nigeria Immigration Service (NIS) has said.

Saturday Punch quoted NIS Assistant Comptroller-General, in charge of training, manpower and development, Mr. Maroof Giwa, as saying this while speaking in Ilorin, on the sidelines of a training on ‘trafficking in persons/smuggling of migrants at various borders’.

He said 4,900 Nigerians died in the Mediterranean Sea while the rest died while going through the deserts in their bid to cross to Europe.

Also speaking, the Kwara State Comptroller, NIS, Mrs. Abiodun Abimbola-Ojo, said the command rescued no fewer than 36 victims of trafficking from 2015 till date.

She also urged people to provide NIS with useful information that would aid the agency to effectively combat trafficking.

Giwa said Nigeria is a member of many international instruments and had signed a number of agreements and treaties, particularly regarding trafficking in persons and smuggling of illegal migrants.

He noted that there is therefore the obligation for the country to implement such agreements, adding that illegal migrants and traffickers (from Nigeria) go through Niger Republic, Mali, Libya and Morocco.

“Smuggling of migrants is taking a front burner in world affairs today. Almost every day, you hear stories of boat capsizing and people trying to reach Europe. Nigerians are dying almost every day.”

“This year alone, 4,900 Nigerians died on the Mediterranean route to Europe. There are countless others who died on their way through the deserts; we have even lost count. Many more perished on that route.”

“In fact over 10,000 people have died on the Mediterranean route and the deserts. Those who died in the deserts are far more than the dead victims along the Mediterranean route.”

AMCON Takes Over Wokson International Over N5bn Debt

Featured Image

 

The Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON) has been ordered to take over all the assets of Wokson International Limited and its promoter, Dr. William Oki, over an indebtedness of over N5bn.

This is after Justice Babs Kuewumi of the Federal High Court, Lagos Division, granted an injunction against Wokson International Limited in Asaba and Warri in Delta State, on the application of the Corporation.

In a statement issued on Friday, AMCON said that it on Thursday moved in and took over all the assets of the company and its promoter as ordered by the court through Mr. Robert Ohuoba, the receiver, who also received protective orders from the court.

The assets, which are now under AMCON, include asphalt plants, hotels and several houses belonging to Wokson and Oki.

The order also froze all accounts of Wokson and Oki anywhere and in any financial institution in the name or belonging to the duo.

The statement quoted the order as stating, “All financial institution served with the order hereby made shall comply by filling at the Registry of the Federal High Court affidavits showing cause and serving same on the claimant’s legal practitioner and in the event that money is found in any account standing in the credit of the defendant, to transfer such sum to the nominated account of the claimant forthwith.”

The court also directed the Inspector-General of Police and the Commissioner of Police, Delta State Police Command, to assist and protect the bailiffs of the Federal High Court and the AMCON-appointed receiver, Ohuoba.

The Head, Corporate Communications, AMCON, Jude Nwauzor, said, “We saw it coming because the said debt is long overdue. I want you to understand that before we get to this stage with any of our obligors, we must have patiently tried to resolve the matter without going to court. Anytime we end up taking over assets such as in the case of Wokson, it means all efforts by AMCON to get the obligor to amicably repay the indebtedness have proved abortive.

“When we had exhausted all avenues of peaceful resolution, there was no other option available to the corporation than to commence enforcement action against Chief Oki, the promoter of Wokson International Limited, as mandated by the court and as provided under Sections 49-52 of the AMCON Act.”

Can Nigeria Defend Itself?

Can Nigeria Defend Itself?, By ‘Tope Fasua

CLICK here to read more opinion articles

Maybe this is the type of article that causes the ‘intelligence’ people in Nigeria to invite you for questioning. But I don’t mean to impugn their efforts but to make what is otherwise a very simple observation. The question is: If the world went mad again and went into a physical World War III, do we have the capacity to defend ourselves?

Let’s hang that there for a minute.

This article was written by Tope Fasua. The views and opinions expressed here are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of 360Nobs.com.

You see, I’m actually an anti-war campaigner. When the ‘modern’ world bristled and huffed that they wanted to go to war with Ghaddafi in Libya, I was so pained I started a group on social media called “Good People of Africa”, and we gathered over 12,000 members. I spent some money doing that. We tried to campaign that that war was wrong-headed and would destroy not only Libya but the whole of Africa. We have been proven right. The war crimes committed by the USA, France, UK and the rest, have been covered up and since most of the world is not discerning, no one cares and no one knows that thousands of women and children were wasted by ‘coalition’ forces, especially the Americans, who purportedly wanted to remove Ghaddafi by lobbing 20,000 missiles into the heavily populated Libyan capital city, Tripoli.

Their missiles and bullets only had “To whom it may concern” written on them, as they mowed down anyone who was unlucky. I hate war. I truly hate war. But the world still goes crazy from time to time. That Libya war was one of my main grudges against Mr. Goodluck Jonathan, because he basically signaled the start of the one-sided ‘war’, being the first African leader to endorse Resolution 1973 with which the United Nation under NATO resolved to go and ‘assist’ the people of Libya by taking out their leader who was ‘killing his people’. It was all fraud.

And it was a harrowing time for me. We saw what happened in the end. Jonathan thought those guys were good to strike a deal with. But they always come for more, and are never satisfied. Our brother Obama – a guy one cannot but love as a human being but who nonetheless saw to the further buckling of the African continent – enabled the bombing of Libya back to the Dark Ages, and with the fall of Libya came an influx of heavy arms into Nigeria and the empowering of whatever it is they call Boko Haram – some small sect which suddenly acquired so much power, money, ammunition and intelligence such that they made mincemeat of us and killed over 50,000 Nigerians. The romantic story being painted around them and the Chibok girls just wants to make one puke. Whoever those guys are certainly have no time for romance and honour. They are drugged-out and cold blooded. I don’t see any humanity in Boko Haram and no one should attempt to lend them some.

Back to the issue of defence. Recently, one of the top military brass under Jonathan was quoted to have complained that ‘the USA refused to sell us weapons; how did they expect us to defeat Boko Haram’. It is that statement that prompted me to examine th
