July 30, 2016 – Nigerian Woman Drowns, 2 Children Rescued On Sea Journey From Libya To Europe
A Nigerian woman reportedly drowned while taking her children from Libya to Europe on board an overcrowded boat on Friday.
According to Associated Press, two Nigerian kids among the 150 migrants rescued by a Spanish agency revealed how their mother drowned in the Mediterranean sea on Friday.
The children (10-year-old boy and 11-year-old girl) were seen crying as they comfort each other aboard a rescue boat.
The Spanish NGO said over 3000 African migrants had drowned in the Mediterranean sea this year alone.

I don’t know why they must over load the boats. And I am beginning to wonder: it appears that the boat crew are never affected by all these; it looks to me that only passengers are the ones that drown whenever there is any mishap, or why have they continued to overload their boats?
This pix above is so touching. African leaders should be ashamed for forcing its citizens into desperate alternatives of survival.

AFRICANS ARE TOO STUPID….. FOR YOUR INFORMATION THE EUROPEAN GOVERMENT HAS MADE ARRANGEMENT WITH THE SAILORS AND SHEEP CAPTAINS TO BE DROWNING THESE AFRICAN MIGRANTS IN THE SEA AS A WAY TO DISCORAGE THEM FROM TROOPING INTO EUROPE. STILL, CAN’T THEY LEARN FROM THE PAST RECORDS? HAVE YOU HEAD ANY OF THE CAPTAIN OR SALOR DIES THROUGH DROWNING? THEY ALWAYS FIND THERE WAY OUT…. IT’S A BID TO STOP YOU FOOOOOOOOOOOOOLS FROM TRAVELING ILLEGALY, GOATS, START GOING BACK TO YOUR COUNTRY…..AFTER THIS, WATCH! ANOTHER SHEEP WOULD STILL DROWN ANOTHER GROUP OF PEOPLE. THEY ARE TIRED OF AFRICANS IN EUROPE.

What a pity that the venture ended tragically for the family. I hope their relations can be traced and are willing to take care of the kids.
RIP to the lady!

With heavy heart i type , this is really heartbreaking. see what desperation have now turn Nigerians to moving from fry pan to fire just in search better life.
The only good thing is that the Spanish authorities will look after the kids and give them support to stabilize them and help make something of themselves.
RIP to the dead.

I am not an African but I been to Nigeria a few times and I love that country and the people are very sweet to visitors , I think Nigeria is one of the most beautiful country in the world , it is a very rich country but at the same time very poor , it is sad to see how hard people have to struggle in Nigeria that they find all mean to leave there country for a better life , I remember 30 years ago Nigerians only leave there country to go to school to study abroad then return to there country there Nira had value then , now all you see is corruption and fraud it is so sad, they ellect a new president and all he dose is travel allover the world but do nothing for his people , in some other countries the president come out and talk to the nation and explain what is happening but that man dont care he is selfish , Nigerian should stop being a coward and get rid of him , I don’t care if some of you are mad with what I say. God help Nigerian..
