AT least, 18 Nigerians have been killed in Equatorial Guinea allegedly on the order of the government as survivors demand $158 million compensation from the government of that country.


'18 Nigerians killed by govt of E'Guinea'
 
This was disclosed in a petition dated February 25, 2011, which was sent to President Goodluck Jonathan by the aggrieved members of the

Nigeria-Malabo Boat Operators Association.

The petition, which was signed by their Chairman, Capt. Edet Bassey Archibong

and Secretary Capt. Nnani Polycarp Nnamdi, said they were victims of "Malabo Attack of February 17, 2009 by the Government of Equatorial Guinea   in which 18 Nigerians had lost their lives as a result of the attack that also brought untold hardship to our members."

They said "on Feb. 17, 2009 some armed men suspected by the Government of Equatorial Guinea to be militants, invaded the Malabo prisons and released four white men imprisoned for alleged involvement in a coup attempt.

"Then on Feb. 17, 2009 the Malabo Police descended on innocent Nigerian traders, businessmen, seamen and sailors at the Malabo port and arrested 128 of our members accusing us of being the militants.

"The Police shot and killed Mr. Sola Jude and Mrs. Affiong Etim, tortured and

maimed our members and 12 died in detention. The victims were detained for three months under severe and inhuman conditions. We lost our boats and rental values of the boats per week."

The angry boat operators who had planned a protest at the Equatorial Guinea Consul in Calabar said, "we lost our merchandise and business profits.   We lost our means of livelihood. We lost our humanity and lives.

"When they discovered that we were not militants they deported us by air from Malabo airport to Ikeja airport with our pocket empty."

They stated that the money represented the group's "valuation report plus

interest for two years at 10 per cent compound interest amounting to 158 million US Dollars as basic compensation including interests."

According to them, the Equatorial Guinea's Consulate in Nigeria and the people of that country should "pay compensation for our 10 cargo boats, one fishing boat and assorted merchandise in the cargo boats, money and other items.''

They stated that the items were  "illegally and unlawfully confiscated" from members of the association "by agents of the Government of Equatorial Guinea" during the attack.

According to them, the President Mbasogo Nguema Administration's action on their members on February 17, 2009 constituted an abuse of their dignity and fundamental human rights. They said that Nguema would also pay compensation for the lives of the 18 Nigerians so far killed by the Equatorial Guinea attack of February17, 2009 on the Nigerian businessmen.

The Cross River Commissioner of Police, Mr. Samson Wudah, on Friday in Calabar stopped the planned demonstration and promised to convey their grievances to the appropriate authorities.

Do not forget that Nigerians is hated by other African countries people for no reason other than jealousy. Imagine Backward
Equatorial Guinea for that matter. Nigerian Government should do more in protecting Nigerians anyway where in the world.
