    Lagos — About 200 Nigerians in Libya have been condemned to death, according to information made available by the House of Representatives Committee on Diaspora.

    The committee has therefore urged the Federal Government to intervene on behalf of its citizens before they are executed.

    Chairman of the committee, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who spoke on the issue, said that some 40 Nigerians had allegedly been put to death already.


    She further said: "the attention of the House Committee on Diaspora has been drawn to the impending execution of about 200 blacks, most of them Nigerians, in Libya.

    "Reliable sources in Libya informed the committee that between 32 and 40 black nationals, mostly Nigerians, have already been quietly executed in the last one week and if necessary steps were not taken, a lot more (at least 200) will be executed soon."

    Dabiri-Erewa said attempts by the Committee to get an official response from Nigerian diplomats in Libya had yielded no result.

    She stated that the ministry of foreign affairs must act immediately, in line with its policy of citizen diplomacy.


    Nigeria must seek alternative means of resolving issues, no matter the crime committed by those concerned, she said.

    "We cannot sit back and watch young Nigerians waste away like this no matter what offences they have committed," she stressed.

    Chairman of the House Committee on Special Duties, Hon. Samson Osagie, said in a statement that it was regretable that a resolution by the house in March urging the ministry of foreign affairs to take steps to bring back all Nigerians in various deportation camps home was not implemented.
    He said there was no evidence that the Federal Government had intervened.

    "Up till now, we are yet to see any visible evidence by the FG (federal government) in this direction with the result that our kith and kin in Libya are now facing extinction by execution," he stated.

    It is, therefore, our demand as representatives of the Nigerian people to urge the FG to immediately take necessary diplomatic steps to halt the mass execution of our nationals in Libya," said the legislator.

    He reiterated that the primary responsibility of government was to protect its citizens anywhere in the world, adding that this is the time to put into practise the doctrine of citizen diplomacy.

    Wanigeria nao wamezidi mno kwa utapeli na ubebaji wa madawa ya kulevya. Huko Uarabuni hawawezi kupona kwani adhabu zao ndo hizo za kutundika wahalifu.

    Kumbuka kua hawa jamaa wako Libya na kuwafunga means that the Libyan
    taxpayer will have to foot the bill.I don think they wanna do that.Kisha pia
    they are interested in 'helping' these drug dealers but want to get rid of them.

    African press ni uhoro wa ajabu. Hawahangaiki ku find out kosa la wanyongwa ni nini. Badala yake wanaokota commentators mtaani wanaodai waachiwe no matter the offense. What if wali commit treason? Foreigners wakifanya any offense within Nigeria na wao watawaachia? No matter what the local law says?

    I think for us to be in a position to debate, it is better you tell us what sin they committed. But just mentioning 200 BLACKS and that THEY SHOULD BE RETURNED HOME DISREGARD OF WHAT THEY DID IN LIBYA are not enough.
