Nigerian lady who died in Ivorian prison reported her plight after two years in jail – Abike Dabiri-Erewa says



Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Chairperson, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, has said the late Itunu Babalola, the Nigerian lady who died in an Ivorian prison, did not report her plight early enough to the Nigerian Commission in Ivory Coast.



Babalola’s case became public in March 2021 and she died on Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021, after suffering an infection while still in prison for a crime she didn't commit.



Following her death, Nigerians called out the Nigerian government, specifically the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) for not acting earlier to get her out of jail.



Reacting during an interview on Arise TV, Abike Dabiri explained that Itunu had spent two years in jail before the matter was reported.Latest Post
