Reports reaching me from the Nigeria Village Square indicate that the Nigerian killed by the Spanish Police in July 2008 has finally been flown home and buried in his home town. The family also received compensation from the Spanish Government.
I checked my blog now and discovered that I have written about this case 20 times. On one occasion I was forced to ask if Nigeria has a Minister for External Affairs or an ambassador in Spain . At another time I was compelled to tell the spanish government to cover its head in shame!
Surely, I have to contact my friend who has been on this case since 2008 to provide me with an update which I will post here later.
What is good now is that “it was better late than never” that Osamuyia Aikpitanhi finally got a rest after sleeping in the mortuary in a strange country for more than one year!
(To be continued)…
These are worrying times not only for Nigerians but Africans as a whole. Racism is mounting now worldwide than any other time in human history. The problem now is that it is more of a mind game than physical manifestations. But the killings accompanying the escalated mind games in countries like Italy, Spain, Russia and now in China are indicators that racism is one of the greatest crimes in the world today.
It has not become an international norm to sentence a man to death in the absence of judicial proceedings still in these notorious countries where blacks are killed by security men or touts, nothing concretes are done by the respective governments.
Osamuyia was killed in Spain in the summer of 2007 and his body is still lying in the morgue in Spain. I can’t stop to imagine how very useless the government of Spain is. Extremely useless! It also amazes me the kind of zombies that called themselves leaders in Nigeria. I don’t see any reasonable government in the world abandoning her citizen in the mortuary of another country. It can only be Nigeria!
A Nigerian businessman has been reported killed in China recently. His death was described as brutal!
There has been a discussion on this at this forum on NAIRALAND.COM
This is a wake-up time for Africans and the black race worldwide. Something is going on and unless the black people unite among themselves they are now face with the threats of extinction and extermination. It is real and the earlier we take the bulls by the horns the better for our preservation and perpetuation globally.
We welcome people to our lands and our homes in Africa but we have been paid with negative coins on other continents. We must find out what is wrong and take urgent steps to address the anomaly.
If the world doesn’t listen to us, we MUST make them listen. Let’s put our houses in order and prepare safe havens for our children and children’s children. The ball is now in our court, let’s show how diligent we are!
