A Nigerian Man Has Been Detained In An Indian Prison For Nine Years Without Trial.


A Nigerian recognized as Okowa Collins Chigozie has been in custody in India for nine years without trial. 

 

A Denmark-based Nigerian man, Ezike Samuel Buchi, who revealed this via Twitter on Thursday, September 22, said Chigozie was arrested in April 2015 and detained in Kerala prison since then.


Ezike claimed that Chigozie did not commit any offense and appealed to the Indian Government to release him. 

 

"I want to inform the general public that this young Nigerian Okowa Collins Chigozie was arrested in India in April 2015 and kept in Kerala prison without any charge, statement, or justice. I now appeal to the Indian government to aid his release," he wrote.

 

"Please help us, sir. After nine years since he has been in prison in Kerala, I beg @IndianExpress to publish this. He has no offense. He appears in court without a file. He did nothing. His only offense was being a Nigerian," he added.

Ije nwoke. Men pass through lots of shit to make the family proud. To be a man is no one-day job. Respect your husbands and boyfriends ok, pray for them and keep hoping for their time to arrive. God bless all men, na time and patience we need to get. Nobody should put pressure on your life, don't allow that.


Is Nigeria and being called a Nigerian a crime? Here lies your answer. It is bad enough to be identified as a Nigerian and as people of color. No be say if you hit the black person he go dey change color as a white person when pummeled. I hate that this is my reality. Hopefully, it will be a short life to live.

Biafran men are always spoiling the road for Nigerians. He may not have done something horrible, but because others have done despicable things without minding tomorrow, others now bear the brunt. So it was your fellow Igbos that created this reality for you.

Senseless comment

Incomplete story. I bet this is to get Abike's attention, but he must have been rightly or falsely accused of something. Nine years and you are just coming out. How about his family? I still wonder why Nigerians go to India of all countries. However, it said that it is the world's sixth largest economy with a GDP of USD 2.7 trillion but is still classified as a developing nation like Nigeria. Cases like this are more in Malaysia

Ok. I find it hard to believe that you can be arrested and locked up for nine years without charges. Can you please reach the Nigeria consulate in India or the office of NIDO and Abike Dabiri, who is in charge of diaspora affairs, to follow up on this matter? Look up their emails and contacts online.


Please stay away from doing shady things we've been known for and live a simple life. I hope you get your trial. He must have done something. The Police in India is not stupid. Okowa Collins Chigozie.....Hmmmmmmm.

It isn't very kind to be Igbo. Everything about Igbos is disgusting and irritating. Dumb idiots, let him rot in the house India provided free of charge since, like most Okoro global nuisance, refuse to stay in their father's land.
