|Why Many Nigerians Languish In Foreign Jails by saxris2012@gmai: 5:21pm On Dec 27, 2012|
Ifeanyi Urigwe answers the so many questions posed by the problems faced by millions of Nigerians who skip our border in search of livable habitats elsewhere around the globe.
Ifeanyi himself has lived in three separate European countries and currently resides in South Africa. He has the firsthand knowledge of what it is like living overseas, illegal border crossings, illicit diamond trade, deportations and many other mind-blowing accounts packed inside one book, ‘EVICTED FROM MY SPACE’.

Emotional Novel of an African Migrant, based on true life story
Everyone has his or her accepted natural space under the sun. But when disturbing conditions and alarming state of affairs, prevalent in one’s native land, compel peculiar eviction and self-exile upon vast majority of fellow citizens, perilous threat is undeniably overshadowing the land.
Drawing on the negative effects of the Nigerian civil war that distressed his childhood life and the twenty-two successive years of nomadic migration across European countries and South Africa, the author blames his endless search for a more prosperous habitat away from his fatherland—Nigeria—on the well-entrenched culture of corruption.
This work highlights the plights of several African migrant workers, travelling to First World countries in search of greener pastures. It is evident from the series of stories in this book that efforts at eradicating deep-rooted corrupt systems from African society can be a life-threatening engagement that may result in one being evicted from his or her space
This is one book that truly exposes Nigeria/Africa situation as it is. It tells what drives our people out of the country, what they do overseas and how they’re received by their hosts.
