Nigerians protest student's detention in Ukraine

Nigerians in Ukraine are protesting against the arrest of a Nigerian student for allegedly defending himself against six teenagers who attacked him at the entrance to his apartment. 


The student, Olaolu Femi, is currently languishing in jail and may be facing life imprisonment in the Eastern European country. 

African Outlook learnt that Femi was arrested after defending himself against his assailants with a broken bottle in the front of his apartment on November 5, 2011 in Luhanski.
Eyewitnesses told African Outlook that one of his friends was attacked in front of his apartment by four Ukrainian young men and two women who pulled them to the ground while hurling racist slurs on them.
Femi was said to have managed to get up and defended himself against the assailants with a broken bottle.
"It was while he was defending himself that police arrived at the scene and Femi was arrested and charged with attempted murder of five people," a Nigerian Embassy worker, told African Outlook.
He added that Femi became an accused in a case, which is being celebrated in Ukraine.
Femi was remanded in custody by the Ukrainian police who refused to take the case to court, claiming that they had not been able to get an interpreter for him.
A PhD student in International Relations and the leader of the Nigerian Students' Community in Ukraine, Osarumen David-Izevbokun, alongside other Nigerian students have been organising protests as well as drawing the attention of the human right groups in Ukraine to the plight of Femi, who has spent almost seven months in jail without trial.
According to a source, the female lawyer handling the case, Ludmila Havrysh, was reported to have told the protesters that her client had not been able to read the file material since it is all written in Ukrainian or Russian.
"We heard she wanted to be paid $10,000 when she had not even been able to secure bail for her client who has been in detention for more than six months," the source told African Outlook.

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
