December 17, 2015 – Nigerian Serving 130 Years Imprisonment At Ankaful Maximum Security Prison In Cape Coast Ghana Pleads For Mercy

My name is Emmanuel Emeka, a prisoner in Ankaful maximum security prison, Cape Coast,
Ghana. I’m serving a jail-term of 130yrs imprisonment and I’m presently in my 8th year. We
appeal to the Nigerian government to please come to our aid.

The condition here has been so unbearable for (we) Nigerian prisoners in Ghana. We need to reconnect with our families. The Ghanaian police are fond of arresting innocent Nigerians, giving them high sentence of 50yrs 70yrs 100yrs 150yrs to 200yrs.

Most of us have spent 8yrs 10yrs 15yrs 17yrs 20yrs inside prison and some have died inside the prison without completing their jail-term. Our families are in the dark, they really don’t know what we are facing. We’ve spent a lot of money trying to appeal in court, but all is to no avail.

Within my 8years in prison, I have witnessed over 100 deaths of Nigerian citizen in the Ghana prison and most of their families are not even aware. They still keep the hope of their return without knowing they are dead and buried with no rites.

We appeal to the government of Nigeria to please act on our behalf so we won’t continue to perish in this peril. There are many Nigerians in all the 46 prisons in Ghana that need help from the Nigerian government.

Also the media, kindly keep spreading the message until it finally grips the attention of the able government.

To fellow citizens of Nigeria, our brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers, please continue to pray for us and do what you can to return us back home. Another sad part is that most of us are on sick bed, no drugs for us. This is the unseen hardship Nigerian citizens in all the prisons in Ghana are facing and myself inclusive. I’ve been sick for the past 2 months and they have not taken me to the hospital or give me any drug.

They treat us like animals, they give us dry garri everyday, no access to communication. I know how I suffered to get this phone to send this message to you.

Please, on this message, lies the survival of about 800 to 1000 Nigerian prisoners in the 46 prisons in Ghana who are in this type of high sentence. Help us spread the message to all the four corners of Nigeria to make campaign for our freedom because that is the only hope left for us.

  1. Nigerian government must step forward to rescue innocent Nigerians languishing in jail abroad. There is an exemption to this. Those Nigerians inmate who landed in jail due to some unavoidable circumstances or got arrested and locked up because they were at the wrong place at the wrong time must get the necessary help to get them out of that slum. This is the duty of our Foreign consulates. Most of our diplomats abroad are very lazy especially the ones designted to investigate the inmates and how they got into that situation. Not every prisoners is criminal. We must do everything within our reach as a nation to rescue our brothers and sisters who have been entangled in this type of horrible situation. However, Nigerians who got locked up because they have committed a crime such selling drugs, advance fee fraud, armed robbery etc should be left to face the consequences because different countries have different laws.

  2. well am sorry my broda but our government are busy pursuing money and arresting looters, they will not have your time. broda pray and ask GOD of prophet TB Joshua to set you free in JESUS NAME: AMEN

    • “””Bokeem””” GOD ***** AND THAT “”EMEKA””, did they come to Nigeria to arrest him.. he shoud tell us HOW MANY ARMRUBBERY operation he went to, Honestly you people *****Nigeria… a Nigeria without ***** would have been a good environment to live. No Ghanean police would arrest innocent Nigerians even without resident permit unless you are involved in ARMRUBBERY WHICH is the *****PEOPLE…. all of them in prion in Ghana are all from the East….. But if they are innocent may God intervene
