- A young Nigerian student is said to have been detained in a Ugandan isolation centre for refusing to bribe with N300,000
- The student, whose name is given as Muh’d Sani reportedly needs help from the Nigerian government
- The attention of the Nigerian authorities have been drawn to the complaint
A young Nigerian student is reportedly in detention in Uganda for allegedly refusing to give out bribes to agents of the country. He was said to have been kept in an isolation camp.
His case was made public by Bulama Bukarti, who posted a message on social media and called for some Nigerian officials to save him.
Bukari gave the name of the alleged detained Nigerian as Muh’d Sani.
According to him: "Muh’d was first stopped by Ugandan immigration officers on his way to Kenya to board Kenyan Airways to Nigeria.
"When he couldn’t meet the officers’ demand to pay 3m shillings (N300k) as bribe, they detained him. They then took him to a Covid-19 hospital where he tested negative.
"The hospital discharged him since 20/04/2020, but the immigration officers refused to collect him from the hospital and doctors won’t let him leave.
"Muh’d is hale and hearty. He’s being maltreated because he isn’t Ugandan; because he’s Nigerian. PLEASE SAVE HIM."
Bashir Ahmad, a special assistant to the President on new media, has called the attention of Abike Dabiri, the chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, to the complaint.
Meanwhile, a Nigerian lady with the Twitter name Debbie of Abuja, has claimed that she is the child in green attire in one of the official iconic pictures of Olusegun Obasanjo with other leaders that emerged online.
Though the date the pictures were taken could not be ascertained, one of them had the past president of the US, Jim Carter, in it.
