Northern Cyprus Unsafe for Education, Nigerian Government Alerts Parents

The Nigerian Government has flagged Northern Cyprus as unsafe for Nigerians seeking education abroad due to the continued and mysterious killing of blacks in the country, Sahara Reporters reports.

The alarm was raised by Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa on Monday when she hosted a delegation led by Justice Amina Bello, mother of a Nigeria student, Ibrahim Khaleel, who lost his life in insoluble circumstances in Cyprus.

She advised parents against sending children there for education, noting hundreds of Nigerian students had been murdered there without the perpetrators been brought to justice.

Commenting on the killings, Dabiri-Erewa said, “The death of Ibrahim Khaleel should be the tipping point to stop the killing of our children anywhere in the world, particularly Northern Cyprus. It is not only Ibrahim. Kennedy Dede 28, Augustine Ngok, Gabriel Sorewei, Osabanjo Owoyale, Augustine Wallace, Stanley Eteno, Hassan Babatunde, Temitayo Adigun, and Kubat Abraham are just a few of the ones that we even know.

“The problem is that most Nigerian parents do not know that Northern Cyprus is not recognised by any country in the world. It is not an UN-recognised country. It is only recognised by Turkey.

“That is why we have not been able to do much. Who do you report to? Thousands of Nigerian students are schooling there, and I tell you that hundreds have been killed. Who do you take these cases to? And they are killed in similar circumstances. The school just tells you ‘well, they committed suicide’ and nothing happens.

She also added that government will release a list of Nigerian students that have been killed there while demanding conclusive investigation be instigated.
