About 1,000 Nigerians in Thailand prison –Ambassador

From Magnus Eze, Abuja

 

Nigerian Ambassador to Thailand, Nuhu Bamali, has said close to 1,000 Nigerians are in prison in the Asian country of Thailand. The envoy made the shocking revelation, yesterday, at the Africa Gems and Jewellery Exhibition and Seminar, in Abuja.

 

He did not give details of their offences. However, advised Nigerians travelling outside the country to always follow the proper channels.

 

“One area that was left out by the minister was the consular issues. I am very delighted that all the key stakeholders are here in this forum. It’s a very serious issue for Nigeria because in Thailand alone, we have close to 1,000 people in jail, which is very embarrassing to our country. So, I am craving the indulgence of the organisers of this event to counsel genuine investors, so that, at least, whenever they are traveling outside Nigeria, they should go through the proper channel,” he stated.

It must cost the country quite a bit to keep them inside what with staffing, feeding etc.

 

Perhaps the Thai government should bill Nigeria because that is a lot of bodies to provide for (to a greater or lesser extent.)

Maybe they should change visa requirements for tourists relative to how many are in jail in Thailand then this is not discrimination, only retribution.

What has that got to do with the topic? Do you have some inside information that these 1000 people are detained because of racial profiling?

Not a surprise really tbh. It's not as if most Nigerians are plying an honest trade here that Thailand needs that isn't on the reserved list. They [Nigerians] are even well known in Africa  amongst their piers for being shameless scammers.

For comparison, there were 752 imprisoned in the UK, and 15,316 worldwide (2014 figures).

 

Nigeria and Thailand have a Prisoner Transfer Agreement (PTA), so about 400 Nigerian prisoners have been transferred back to the cess pit from which they came since 2008.  (Again 2014 figures.)
