In a development that paints a troubling picture of how Nigeria treats its over 160 million citizens, government officials have ignored a Save Our Souls (SOS) message from Nigerians in Greece dating back to September 13, 2012.

News Express had reported the SOS on January 10 this year, giving details of the ordeal of the country’s citizens in Greece as revealed via a petition by Athens-based writer and activist, Nnamdi Obodoechi.

“I sent the letter to the Nigerian Embassy in Greece, the European Union, Senator Uche Chukwumerije, Senator Hope Uzodimma, the Nigerian Senate, the House of Representatives and the Presidency,” Obodoechi told News Express.

“The Ambassador (Ayodeji Lawrence Ayodele) is trying, but the Presidency, Senate and House of Representatives have failed to reply me. However, Senator Chukwumerije acknowledged receiving my letter,” Obodoechi disclosed.

Contrasting his experience in the hands of the Nigerian authorities with that of the EU, Obodoechi said: “The European Union replied me immediately, promising to look into my complaints. EU Commission President Barroso replied me, saying: ‘Thanks for your Submission made 2012 06-17 10:40 PM and I will tackle the problem.’ ”

Obodoechi had in a story entitled “Treated like dogs: SOS message tells heart-rending story of ordeal of Nigerians in Greece” painted a graphic picture of how Nigerians in the country are stripped of their fundamental human rights and treated LIKE DOGS by the Greek authorities and security agents.
