Goodday everyone.

Please I have a serious challenge and don't know how to go about it, so I decided to put it up in this forum hoping for advice from fellow NairaLanders.

2 years ago my elder brother (who is actually the only brother I have) went to China in search of greener pastures. I was about rounding up my first degree so we hardly communicate then.
When I finished late last year, we had lots of time to gist via WhatsApp voice and video call option, and less often the chat.

Last 2 months being March, Specifically on 23rd I chatted him up telling him that I was with my girlfriend and wanted him to say HI to her being her birthday. He said he was already asleep but will speak with her the next day.

The next day being Sunday 24th March he didn't come online and that have been the case till now.
I was less bothered, thinking he wanted to stay off social media for a while. Weeks passed by still no way to reach him. His number either doesn't connect or am automatically transfered to voicemail.
My Sister then decided to chat up one of his friend he usually tag on FaceBook who is in China to ask about his whereabout, and his friend told her that on that Sunday morning the Chinese Police raided his apartment and arrested him for financial fraud.

My NYSC orientation camp was a less pleasant experience because it was there that I got the news. My parents were informed but could do nothing about it since they don't have any contact in China.

I asked my brother's Chinese friend if he knows the prison my brother was put in, he replied no, and due to his incomplete papers he wouldn't be able to move around and make inquiry's.
He constantly assured me and my family that my brother will be released, its just a matter of time.

Am just scared of the fact that I haven't even spoken with my brother for so long and considering the bad press about Chinese prison what his fate will be.

Please can anyone best advice me on how to reach my brother to know what is going on... Maybe how to contact the the Chinese Police or just anything positive on the issue.

Cause I don't even know if he is alive.
I dont know the prison he is in and how long he will be staying there.
I don't even know how to console my parents anytime they ask me about him.
Am just blank, and it hurts.

I wonder if these tears will ever leave my eyes.

Any comment will be greatly appreciated.

I call on the Moderators of this great forum to please push this post to FrontPage so as to reach wider audience. This is the embassy contact

It's well bro, while acting on the advice you've received so far, look after yourself. Worries are needless and always pray.

Godspeed!

Sorry for the predicament your family is in because of your family. If your brother was picked up by the police in Guangzhou say for a crime committed in Guangzhou, chances are your brother is being held up in a jailhouse in Guangzhou. But if he was picked up in Guangzhou for a crime committed say in Chengdu, chances are your brother is being held in a jailhouse in Chengdu ( the jurisdiction where the crime was committed. To find out what happened to your brother you should ask his friends ( I'm assuming he has some) in Guangzhou if they have any information with regards to where your brother's being incarcerated. If your lucky to glean any information from them, then you should contact the Nigerian consulate in Guangzhou for further help.
One more thing: Is your brother the guy who was picked up in his apartment alongside a Filipino girl in Guangzhou about two months ago
?

Op,
Follow up on this lead.

When he finally comes out pls tell him to return home. Nigerians shld stop going to these wicked countries, most especially without papers. If u must immigrate, go to Canada or Europe where there is human rights biko. In China u can die at anytime. Your brother might even be innocent. But I believe he will soon be released.

Cheers. It is well

The only thing you can do for him if you have faith in God pray fervently for him but if your faith is not up to mustard seed I will advice you to go by the way of traditional because asia prison is not a prison to serve especially chinese prison before you know they will be planning to harvest his kidney which I pray that will not happen

You can/should do nothing but wait. Anything else is an action in futility.

no papers, he will be deported after serving his time.

If a crime was committed, he will serve his time.

He will/might only be given a phone to call you if his case goes from bad-worse, the call will be a good bye call.

Asia is not Europe or America, they frown seriously at any type of crime, they even execute their ministers if caught on corruption charges so you can imagine what. They will do to a Foreigner?

let him enjoy his punishment in peace ..Ur brother no dey hear word

just look at comments above,it shows that fraud runs in Nigerians' veins.everyone is more concerned on the brother but no one is concerned about the consequences of his acts.thwy think china is like naija where u go free after committing crimes.

wasn't OP enjoying the proceeds from his criminal acts B4 he was arrested?.did he ask him the kind of jobs he was into?

'Searching for greener pastures' means going to violate Visas and do fraud in Nigerian parlance. I would've said don't bother yourself because China is just another kettle when it comes to human rights for criminals and we should be happy justice is served for his victim(s).
Tough luck, but if he did the crime, he should do the time (that's if it's only time he'll do in China).

Anyway, see if you can contact the Chinese embassy in Nigeria, and the Nigerian Embassy in China and be upfront with what exactly he was up to there in the far east. You can take it up from there.

People like your brother continue to make things difficult for legitimate Nigerians trying to earn a honest living and bring value to Nigeria in these countries angry

Nothing will happen to your brother unless he was caught with drug.
But if it's only paper issue, he will be deported after serving 3 month.. He will be ask to contact his family for his air ticket or he will remain in Chinese prison until the family do so.

Govt. Abduction.

Dis regard for rule of law....

That's a very stupid country to b in....many times there are no legal representation for a plaintiff...it's usually one way trial traffic.....

Thanks for your response.

His papers are not complete and he didn't go with student Visa, I think he went with Visitors Visa.

I doubt he smokes weed.

Please how do you suggest I reach him?
