Disheartening: 26 Dead Nigerian Women Found Refrigerated on Spanish Warship, FG Reacts

The corpse of 26 dead Nigerian women were recently found refrigerated aboard a Spanish warship in the Italian coast city of Salerno.

There are suspicions that they may have been sexually abused and murdered as they attempted to cross the Mediterranean.

Reacting to this development, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora Matters, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, urged Nigerian youths to stop illegal migration through the Mediterranean or the desert.

She also revealed plans to unveil a comprehensive policy document to curb illegal migration.

“Fatalities are increasing on the Mediterranean because the smugglers are using smaller boats. I just returned from a summit in Adis-Ababa where we are coming up with a comprehensive irregular migration document. By July next year, a formal document would be unveiled. I hope it would assist in checking the sad trends.

“The migrants are going over there to work, so there is a way it could be properly regularised.

“Unfortunately, the part of Europe they are migrating to is no longer interested in saving anyone; they are tired. We are appealing to our youths to stop illegal migration.”
