Alleged drug offence: 72 year old Nigerian woman held in Brazil

                                               Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa                                                    Brazilian prison
According to the chairman of the House of Reps committee on Diaspora, Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa, a 72 year old Nigerian woman, identified as Fausat Aosede is being held in Brazilian over drug related offenses.

Hon Dabiri-Erewa traveled to Brazil with some members of her committee on a fact finding mission after the woman's plight and that of at least 456 other Nigerians, including 14 women, serving various jail terms over drug offenses, were brought to her attention by an NGO known as 'Youths Without Borders'.

In a media chat this week, the law maker said the 72 yr old woman was lured to Brazil on the pretense of getting medical treatment by another lady called Patricia. When it was time for the old woman to go back home, Patricia allegedly gave her a parcel to take back to Nigeria. Unknowingly to the old woman, the parcel contained drugs. She was arrested at a Brazilian airport as she tried to leave the country.

Because of her age, the woman is not in prison as Brazilian law forbids jailing anybody above the age of 70, but she is being held in confinement and will be sent to a remand home if convicted.

The honourable said a lawyer has been arranged to handle the woman's case, and that of other Nigerians serving jail terms in the country.

Why must we go and disgrace ourselves overseas?! This woman is meant to be taken care of by her children and blessing her grandchildren instead of setting a bad example. If I may add, she barely looks 72

The case of the 72 year old woman is a bit baffling to say the least. Who on earth would allow their elderly mother or grandmother travel to Brazil for medical treatment on her own?? Also, why travel all the way to Brazil and not India, which is far cheaper and easier to get to?? Her story is very very fishy indeed!

please find a way to encourage Nigerians to work hard for theirb money instead of resorting to short cuts to get rich quick. When a 72 year old woman goes to this extent to make money, you begin to wonder if she wants to take it with her to her grave.

So, so unfortunate. Poor granny and to think she's been duped into this. The heart is desperately wicked, who can know it. I just pray the poor woman comes out of this and the persons, the real criminals are caught.

But as much as the Dabiri led committee is concerned, i say, good initiative and they've been fantastic. I do however wonder if they are not going beyond their mandate and perhaps usurping some redundant government agency like Immigerations or the Embassy.

I shudder to think what it's costing the tax payer to get the committee go to 'n' fro Brazil, as well as upkeep. Isn't it about time that the agency of government responsible for issues like this is made to pull their weight so that the Dabiri led committee can concentrate on proactive legislative tasks and perhaps save us hard currency.

@ Anonymous Mar 29, 2012 03:11 PM, seriously. Are you for real or an about to be uttered joke? Ok, am waiting for the punch line so tha I can start laughing.

I suppose, you've got eyes right? But can they see? If they can, can they read? If they can, can your brain connect to your eyes and interprete what you read?

Somehow, I think you lost the ability to process simple english and understand them. I suggest that you let Linda know what language you understand other than english so that you'll be getting posts in it.

How can you be so so not intelligent. The caption by the pic says Abike Dabiri and yet your eyes and brain tell you she is the 72yr old woman in question. You also read other commentators chastising Anonymous 12:13 on the misrepresentation and yet you make the same error. And to think you want to go to Brazil to be jailed. That might even be the best, at least the world will be one less of another nitwit. Abegi!

Its so annoying how people cannot understand simple sentence and still want to show relevance. how can u say dat Abike Dabiri is d one in prison. it only shows dat some ppl dont read posts, they just make silly comments. Linda i hope u find a way of censoring ds comments cos lots of ppl are complaining about it on twitter. the level of ignorance and hate especially.

in btw, i pray that the woman be vindicated if she's truly innocent and let the criminals face the music themselves.

R u sure u have tv in ur house? Or is it that u have never tuned into NTA....

@Anon 11:11pm thats not the woman we are talking about nah.... Thats Abike Dabiri. Chei, most of us dont read the post before commenting sha...Loool

We do have some educated illitrates on this blog. Wow! That is why the unemployment rate in this country is so high. I wonder how they pass their exams!

Anonymous said...

Anybody that doesn't know Abike Dabiri does not listen to the news or read papers, that is pardonable but commenting without reading is just way too foolish. That is why many people fail English language exams cos they conclude before reading the comprehension.

Quite unfortunate
