Video:Nigerian delegation to United Nations raise concern over treatment of Black Africans in Libya
It took a while and unrelenting pressure from Nigerian advocacy groups and ever vibrant Nigerian youths on social media network before the government could summon the courage to address the issue.
I am however pleased that the Nigerian government deem it fit to raise the issue during the Interactive Dialogue with: The Commission of inquiry to investigate all alleged violations of international human rights law in the Libyan. Rare thumbs up to the government of Nigeria.
Kayode Ogundamisi is a commentator on Nigerian and international affairs, he was involved in the Nigerian pro-democracy struggle, Ogundamisi survived a trumped up charge of treasonable offence against the military government of General Babangida, he was detained in Jos prison in 1991 and released after intensive local and international campaigns against the government charging him and 12 other students before a military tribunal. Ogundamisi was a frontline member of the National Association of Nigerian Student and a former secretary general of the the University of Jos Students Union in Nigeria and the O'dua Peoples Congress.
