Thanks for your response.

How will I do that Sir?

Is it via email or am to go to a place?

Am in Nigeria.

I am in Nigeria. Not Am in Nigeria.

I'd advise you contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or try and engage Abike Dabiri on Twitter or Instagram.

If your brother committed a crime, he will be tried and convicted. The best you can get him is a good legal representative from the person and ministry mentioned. The Chinese embassy here won't help you much.

My brother first of all I want to console you on your odeal
It hurts because I know my junior brother faced the same fate like two years ago but not in China

All you need to do now is to reach out to Nigerian Embassy in China put a call to them or email them. If you have anyone in the ministry of foreign affairs he or she can help you out too.

Secondary Prayer: Prayer works, when my brother was incarcerated he was charged to court and their offence was 10 years imprisonment but my mother have to embark on a one week long fasting and prayer and on the day she ended that fasting my brother called that he has been released. Just like that, he said on the day of their final judgement the judge that was handling cased looked at then for a while and ordered for their release. So you can see prayer is the key to any problem.


Don't worry Your brother will come out and meet all of you his loved ones.

What if he actually committed the financial fraud?
God will just do magic and he will come out just like that?
Nigerians sef!!

your brother is Fraudster in china, and to top it up he is illegal, china is worst for human rights. especially when a nigerian is involved.

Guy, just forget about your brother, they probarbly have executed him Already.. Or put him in one of their notorious jails were he will work for 22 hours making made in china products. trust me i know.


Who da hell goes to china? to do what? if not to purchase their cheaply made hand bags or shoes. He.waa definitely Arrested in chocolate city. that's were all the Nigerians (especially IGBOs) resides. Jobless and Hustling as they call it.

There are hundreds of Nigerians in various Chinese prisons languishing, Some have died and since buried as a result of the poor condition of chinese prisons and beating by the prison officers.


Nigerians/Africans should stay away from China, unless they are going there as tourists or to purchase goods..

For those suggesting he should pray, praying would be a total waste of time and energy. he will be doing a long jail term 15 to 20 years, that's if he is still alive. The other nigerians there will not and can't do anything for him as they are Afraid of getting Arrested too for living illegaly in china. China is worst for human rights, they jail, execute their own people. let alone a Nigerian fraudster.

If he had no papers and was committing financial crimes, then he probably deserves the trouble he's in. If he was arrested by mistake, that is another case.
This is our Nigerian problem. A person will go overseas for criminal activities. The family will all be in full knowledge. They won't condemn him, they won't talk. You won't see any story on social media.

A. If the person returns unharmed and gives them some cash $ ¥ € £, they will dance to church, praise him for doing "Well".

B. If the person is caught by the foreign police and sent to jail, you will see the family here, pretending like they never knew the member was into criminal activities.

In fact at this point I now believe nigeria is finally messed up.
Can you imagine people using God's name to support evil?
What is wrong with Nigerians? How can we continue to support crimes and even to the extent of using God's name to pray for it?
Ewwooo! Chai
This country is finished, one was even giving testimonies of how God supposedly helped her husband get smaller sentence for a whole drug offence to South Africa. Chai!

Absolutely correct. who da hell goes to china? if not to purchase their cheaply made products or for tourism. china is worst for human rights.

You can't blame their families, i think most times their families don't know what their sons or daughters do in foreign countries. because they are told different by their criminal sons or daughters.

Sighs may God Almighty be with your bro, going to an international prison is one of the worse things that can happen to a man especially if it’s Asia.


China itself is a very big country so I doubt if you can know the exact prison he was taken to so I’ll urge you to pray for him that’s all and don’t make the same mistake he made by going to China without solid plans.

Thanks a lot for this response.

Am grateful.

Sorry for the predicament your family is in because of your brother. 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 you're 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?

Yes. He is the one. His friends said he is in Guangzhou.

How did you know about the case?

I will appreciate a response from you.

@Soul47
My dear i am sorry for what you and your family are passing through but trust me it will be alright even though it may take a long while.

My family encountered similar issue even worse, we are two in our family just myself and kid brother.

He travelled out six years ago to Brazil while i got married three years ago.I have long lost my mum so it was just me and my dad.

My husband did my bride price and i got pregnant he said he wanted to travel out and will be back soon.

My dear i was two months pregnant living with my father when i was told my husband had been arrsted for drug offence i didnt hear from him again.

I went into depression, pregnancy, cashlessness and a father to take care of, i called my brother and cried my heart out he was pushed to redeem the family out pf poverty and frustration.

My dear that is how he carried drugs from brazil swallowed it and almost died and headed to South Africa enroute to Nigeria.

Himself and four of his friends left for that journey, i never knew he entered drugs just to raise money and help us as i was already nine months, frustrated with a father to feed.

My dear this is true life story, immediately he moved he called me his coming to Nigeria i was happy praying never knowing what laid ahead.

Two days later he called that himself and his four friends have been arrested in South Africa with drugs,Jesus i ran madddddd......i entered labour self immediately from the tears and frustration.

Thats how i birthed with tears and it was God all through, i told my dad about what happened and the man almost died.Few weeks later he called saying he needed 500,000 for lawyer else he stands a risk of being imprisoned for fifteen years chai.

Me wey never see 1000, well i cried and taught i would die, i cried ooo, my heart broke, i birthed a boy but sadness all over.My baby father made no contact for three years my dear.

I eventually got up, prayed and asked God to save me.I had stitches after child birth and was told to stay on bed rest for a while but i couldnt with all my problem.

Immediately i got home i dropped the baby with a neighbor and hit the street going to every of my uncle asking for help to raise lawyer money for my brother, my dear they all failed.They even mocked us that he shpuld test prison and see is not easy who told him to carry drugs.

My father was there asking me daily to talk to his son or he would die, chai.

I later had to give myself brain and spoke to my brother, he sounded strong initially telling me to be strong for him to take care of the family, that his friends have been sentenced to ten years and his thế last awaiting judgement i should just believe is ten or twelve yeats i should hold on throughout and kiss my baby for him.

I swear as am typing am even crying but am trying to tell u a real story to encourage you.I went to hustle by calling all my contacts that am into books selling, luckily for me, a lecturer friend gave me contract to stock school libray, i did that with the pain and stitches in my body after childbirth but i was determined to raise that lawyer money.

I did that and after that i made 150,000 from it.i quickly sent it to him asking him to deposit for lawyer, next i started going to island to look for things to resell, infact God was with me, within two months i raised another 70,000 and forwarded to him.Mind you all the people he knew failed him no support at all.


After i had sent the 220k in total, the lawyer came in and fought for him, told the court he had a job in Brazil which is true although the pay was small but he was pushed after his sister went into labour and the pressure from home was much etc, also his a firat time offender and his enroute Nigeria and not SA, sth like that sha. i was told to produce a lot of document thats how i kept running up and down like a mad woman, i slimed down to brown stick, people who came to greét me for the birth of my baby kept asking are you ok,chai i suffered.

I didnt even have time for myself or the baby, i kept sending him money to buy a phone there so we could communicate with him, if he buys this week nextweek they will seize it, upper week i send and they seize he buy again they seize infact it was a life time challenge i cannot forget.


After five months of awaiting trial he was sentenced to four years, to serve two years and two is suspended, chai i did it, all alone.Jehova be praised.I encouraged my dad all though telling him to be strong but in my room i cried.My father lived through it cos i stood like a lion and never gave up.

To the glory of God he started his sentence after he had wasted six months awaitig trial which was cancelled as it wasnt counted.He started serving and i kept praying, at some point we couldnt communicate but i had hope is not over he is alive he will be back someday.

To the glorify of God, he came back this year february 2019, instead of being deported to make matters worse for us here in naija,a Sputh African woman helped him to cross over and he was allowed to enter Nigeria after he had finished serving.

He came back looking so good against my initial thought of him looking sick and out.i cried and was mad with excitemnet.My father laid down on the sand and rolled to God thanking him, only son chai.we suffered, but is over.

Guess what three years down,my husband suddenly appeared released after been incommunicado for three years his son is a fine healthy boy of three years, finally is over.

Why did i write u long epistle is to tell you that people have seen it, have hope and faith for God is alive.

He isnt dead,chinese prisons dont give easy access to cellphone to call but know that one day he will call.

Be strong for your parents, dont be weak, encourage them, tell them is ok, that his fine. Tel tham that his friend said his ok, because sad news can kill them due to old age.Just tell them his ok but cant communicate.

Nobody can go there to see him, security is tight, my brother case nobody could,hmmmmm na drug oooo who go go?

Be prayerful, go to God and tell him to help ur family, do you know how i raised all that money i dont know, i havent even touched such fund in my life but when challenge came my determination pushed me to save my brother.He was the only one in his clique that got the easiest sentebce in a good cell.

So dont loose hope, his not dead, yes you hear stories that jail is tough thats true but it wont kill him it will only make him tougher thats the truth so dont worry he will be back one day,it may take long but he will.Stay strong, dont give up.

If you want to start contacting embassy, honestly naija is sth else the process will drain you emotionally, financially and yet you may not achieve any tangible result because he didnt go on student visa.

DONT GIVE UP, STAY STRONG, HE WILL COMMUNICATE SOON.BE STRONG FOR YOUR PARENTS ok.May God make it easy for you in jeaus name.Amen.
You are indeed a very nice person, the universe will never forget you for your good deeds. Mark my words. Love and joy is your portion. Amen.

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

since he was caught on financial issues which can be for any reason from being indebted to not doing a job paid for by a customer.
give him a little more time cos he might be on top of d issue.
no go cast his parole.

He is in prison already for an alleged crime. What else could go wrong?
