Friday, 31st of January, 2020 was emotional for all of us at the Roseline Ebunobi Foundation (REF) upon the safe return of our Nigerian brothers -Adams and Victor who were detained by the Kenyan Government.
This wouldn’t have been achievable if we at the Roseline Ebunobi Foundation did not raise awareness by reaching out to the Nigerians in the Diaspora commission (NIDCOM) @nidcom_gov via a phone call, followed by an official email. I must commend the Nigerians in the Diaspora commission for their laudable action and timely intervention.
Adams contacted us in December via social media and since then, the foundation has been making efforts within its capacity to be of assistance to him. This became necessary because of his traumatizing experience to the point of even considering suicide.
Adams told us about his ailment while he was locked up in a room. No diagnosis before medicines were given.
The story behind Adams’ return is beyond “The Return of two Nigerians Stranded in Kenya” that is all over the media right now.
Can we find time to hear their side of the story?
The Chairman of Nidcom, Hon Abike Dabiri and her team are doing such a great job and should be commended.
The government has promised to empower the returnees and we at REF are committed to following the process through.
Let’s be our brother’s keeper.
All lives matter.
We are ONE
