I’ll just make it brief, I was in my early 20’s, my friends talked me into the journey but I didn’t know they were not travelling with us until the day we left Nigeria.

I didn’t have much information about the journey but because they told me it’s easy and fun I left Nigeria with them.

We were first held by rebels in the desert for 28 days, mind you I left Nigeria Feb 3rd 2009 and I got to Libya in March.

The owner of the uncomplicated building we were living brought the police to arrest us 4 days after I got to the house, some guys were arrested but i and some other guys escaped, we ran into the cemetery and slept there till 6AM.

I found a Nigerian who offered to allow me stay in his house, few days later I told him that I got a connection to cross to Italy and I will be living the following day.

The following morning this guy left the house and locked everyone inside, he returned in the evening with 3 guys, a Ghanian and 2 Nigerians. The moment he entered the house he pointed at me saying this is the boy before I knew what was happening they stated beating me asking me to follow them. I resisted and fought back, the landlord heard the noice, he came knocking so the guys quickly ran away.

The following morning this guy asked me to pay him $300 before he will allow me leave, I said you should have said that instead of bringing people to beat me up. Then I gave him the money and left his house to the camp from where we were to be taken to the sea side.

The same night we were taken to the sea side, when we got there we were ask to sit on the floor and not make noice, about 3 minutes later a small balloon boat came and was taking us 30/30 to the big boat, I was on the 3rd batch, few minutes after I entered the big boat, we saw boats coming towards our direction behold they were coast patrol.

The person that was to sail our boat told everyone that we will all die instead of him to allow the police arrest him then he zoomed off, the police chased our boat till they caught us when we were almost out of Libya territory.

We were arrested and taken to prison on Sunday and we broke the prison on Tuesday and escaped. We were chased all night……. Na long story bro I hope I get to document all that happened on that trip one day. I lost my left eye as a result of the beating I got from the guys that were invited to beat me.
please where are you now brother??

jimoh

Hmmm

Sounds so very familiar...it would have been easier and more concrete to ascertain if you knew any of his aliases because most people dey get nicknames there...

If he's the same one I'm thinking, he was a part of the Yoruba 'Aso Rock'. This group were the most brutal out there and would kidnap boys and girls- mostly girls though due to their economic and other values as one can imagine.

This wasn't restricted to just the Yorubas though because we had Edo and Igbo Aso rocks too.

It is also commonplace to find any of these groups turning on one another in supremacy battles armed with weapons and all.

They'd kidnap people and have them locked up in their ghetos and force them to call their relatives abroad for bail money a.k.a ransom. Sometimes they'll collect these monies and still go on to sell these girls to other madams.

It's a huge human trade and trafficking out there.

I can't fully recall if the Jimoh died in one of the fierce battles or drowned at sea, hopefully not.

Writing this piece is just helping me recall more events man....

The tori too long and I can't stop being grateful to God for all I went through and the lessons I got from it.

It's moulded and shaped me into the better human that I am today.

Taking this kind of risk just to relocate to Italy that is almost the same with Nigeria?


Italy is economically dead just like most EU countries. There is no job in Italy, social welfare for even citizens is near zero. Training kids in Italy is insanely costly compared to Ireland or even UK.



Many Nigerians living in Italy are living in worst condition than those living in Ajegunle, so why take such risk for such a glorified European slum? angry


I blame APC and Buhari.


If they had put in sincere efforts to at least make Nigeria livable by running an inclusive and proactive government that doesnt discriminate, youths won't be taking this kind of risk cry


Before you decide to migrate to any country from Nigeria as a Nigerian, check around your community or environment, how many Nigerians living in that country are doing well financially? Also check how many that are excelling doing legitimate work or job?


Some countries don't deserve the risk.



I know Nigeria isn't working currently but its not as bad as taking the risk to migrate to some countries where you will face harsher conditions of survival.


Trust me dear young Nigerians, if you take away pride, shyness and all that and fold your sleeves and put in more effort by doing some legitimate odd jobs or rendering legitimate odd services in Nigeria that many of our people do when they travel abroad, you will never beg for food and with time, God of multiplication and labor will visit you and reward your hardwork.




The only aspect I condemn Buhari and APC completely is in the area of widespread insecurity that have made Nigeria an unsafe country for her citizens. You can't travel freely within Nigeria and yet we have a President, we have Police, Army, Civil Defense, etc, its so shameful. Give Nigerians complete security and allow them hustle their way out of life till fortune smiles on them someday not allowing useless gunmen and idiots to be kidnapping, killing and slaughtering citizens at will without any instant consequences to discourage others from joining such brutal trend angry

People were making that journey when I was in university. The stakes are now higher after the destabilision of Libya. That's when all this stuff like outright slavery started

They call it lampa-lampa, many of my friends don cross am and are doing very well now in Europe. The baddest one is small, this bros crossed this season with his wife and 3months old twin babies. Alaye is doing fine in Germany now with family. Those that don't have liver are still languishing in Jamaria (Libya)

Your guy went with his wife and three month old babies on this journey? Who are you lying to? This journey is for fittest and hardest of hard men. A wife and child on that kind of journey you are already at an extreme disadvantage. A desert route full of lawless bandits and murderers? Ending in a ride in a sea worthless boat across the Mediterranean? And then a mad dash to avoid Italian police?

Why exactly are you telling these lies?

Thank you for your input. I don't know any of his alias as we were not even close nor gets to spend quality time together before he travelled through that route.
The family had since move on as they couldn't contact him and he never contact anyone or travel back home ever since he left .
Somehow everyone seams to had come to term with the fact that they won't see him ever again

We were 16 that left Kano with other 3 from Malawi and Sierra Leone. 19 (17 male 2 female) of us took the trip to Tamereset.

When we got to Shabha we were only 11. Others were stranded and couldn't continue, a lady died from constipation in one of the camp and was buried in a shallow grave.
