Okowa Collins Chigozie, a Nigerian, has been detained in India for nine years without being tried.
Ezike Samuel Buchi, a Nigerian living in Denmark who made this announcement on September 22 via Twitter, says Chigozie was incarcerated in Kerala prison since his arrest in April 2015.
Ezike urged the Indian government to free Chigozie on the grounds that he had not broken any laws.
“I want to bring to the notice of the general public that this young Nigerian Okowa Collins Chigozie was arrested in India in April 2015 and has been kept in Kerala prison without any charge, statement, or justice. I hereby appeal to the Indian govt to aid his release,” he wrote.
“Please help us sir, it’s getting 9 years since he has been in prison in Kerala, I beg @IndianExpress to publish this. He has no offense, he appears to court without a file, he did nothing, his only offense was being a Nigerian” he added.
