    What actually gets me thinking each time I hear of people drowning in the Mediterranean sea is that, they pay heavy cash sometimes as high as $2000 or more to set off this perilous journey using unseaworthy boat only for them to be exposed to danger in the seabed. Why not use those 400 to 500 thousand naira to invest here in your country rather making worthless journey to a place where you will still be regarded as refugees fleeing war and poverty?
