Nigerian student, Olaolu Femi, facing life imprisonment in Ukraine

A young Nigerian student, Olaolu Femi, (pictured above) is facing life in prison in Ukraine for attempted murder. Continue to read the full story.




From African Outlook...

African Outlook gathered that the Nigerian identified as Olaolu Sunkanmi Femi and one of his friends were physically 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.

According to eye witness account, Sunkanmi was said to have managed to get up and defended himself against the assailants with a glass from a broken bottle.


"It was while he was defending himself that police arrived at the scene and the Nigerian was subsequently arrested and charged with attempted murder of five people" a Nigerian embassy staff who has knowledge of the case told African Outlook, adding that the victim thus became an accused in a case which has become a celebrated case in Ukraine.


African Outlook gathered that Olasunkanmi has since been remanded in detention by the Ukrainian police who refused to take the case to court citing unavailability of the police to get an interpreter for him.

But the Nigerian students' community in Ukraine under the leadership of Osarumen David-Izevbokun, a Phd student in international relations has been working tirelessly to ensure justice for the Nigerian by organizing protests as well as drawing the attentions of the human right groups in Ukraine to the plight of Olasunkanmi who has spent almost seven months in jail without trial.


David-Izevbokun told African Outlook that he alongside other Nigerian students in conjunctions with some members of the Ukrainian human right groups staged a protest on April, 9 outside the Leninsky District Court in Luhanski demanding the release of Olasunkanmi.


The actions, according to David-Izevbokun has put the Ukraine police on the spot as the case came up for hearing on May 3. "We had a lot of media coverage on the protest " David-Izevbokun said, noting that he was sure the attention given the case may have prompted the May 3 court appearance of the suspect.


David-Izevbokun who was at the May 3, court hearing told African Outlook that Olasunkanmi appeared depressed when he showed up in court.


Many other Nigerian students spoken to by African Outlook however raised concern about the competence of the female lawyer: Ludmila Havrysh handling Olasunkanmi's case.


The Ukrainian lawyer was reported to have told protesters that her client has not been able to read the file material since it is all written in Ukrainian or Russian which he doesn’t understand and that was why her client had remained in jail.


"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" an irate Nigerian told African Outlook wondering whether the lawyer was capable of defending Olasunkanmi.


Another source also told African Outlook that one of the attackers's family who has a connection with the Ukrainian police may have been the reason why the Nigerian student was being detained without trial.


"They went to the hospital and documents were secured for infliction of wounds. I learnt that one of the supposed victim (Ukrainian) has a police relative or parent, and so vowed to deal ruthlessly with Olasunkanmi" a Nigerian student quoted one narrator as saying while lamenting that the Nigerian embassy's representative came to visit Olasunkanmi in jail once but did not return again after the first visit.


But an embassy spokesperson who pleaded anonymity (because he is not authorized to comment on the case) told African Outlook that the Nigerian consulate had not abandoned the Nigerian to his fate "We are in torch with the Ukrainian authority and we have been doing everything to ensure the boy is released unconditionally using diplomatic channel" he said, adding that the Olasunkanmi was being charged for attempted murder, an offense which under Ukrainian law is not bailable.


"There are ways in which we handle cases like this so that we would not appear to be hostile or criticizing our host countries' laws" the embassy staff said while assuring that he was confident Olasunkanmi would be released soon.


When asked if the embassy has been able to secure the service of an attorney for the Nigerian student, the embassy staff said: "It is not within our mandate to pay for attorney's fees for any Nigerian in distress, you may check this out with other Nigerian embassies abroad, but we have been working with the Nigerian community leaders here to ensure that we do everything within our means to help Olasunkanmi in time of his need" the staff added hinting that the representative of the embassy was at the May 3 hearing.


In a related development African Outlook gathered that a 28-year-old Nigerian student of Kharkiv National Radio Electronic University is in intensive care unit with knife injuries to his neck following an attack on him by people believed to be racists.


Another 19-year-old Nigerian student from the Poltava Agrarian Academy is also lying critically ill in the Ukrainian hospital following knife injury inflicted on him by yet to be identified persons.


African Outlook gathered that the two Nigerian students were attacked late in the evenings by assailants who fled the scene immediately after the attacks.


The Kharkiv Regional Prosecutor’s Office in Ukraine are treating both cases as attempted murder motivated by racial intolerance.


Speaking on the two recent attacks, the Nigerian embassy said they were yet to be briefed on the case.

This is a note of warning to Nigerians. Pls don't go to Ukraine to further your studies. Most of them are racists. My friend used to live in Russia, bcos she was very fair in complexion(like a half caste),her russian friends thot she was canadian or american.The day she told them she was from Nigeria,attitudes changed towards her.She became like a pariah in her apartment building. Racism is really rife in those areas. I hope everything possible is done to secure his release. God will be with him.

I met a guy from Hungary who said vile racist people slapped his head on the train right in his face and if he fought back he'd be the one arressted. Now tell me why a Black Nigerian would be studying in this environment if not for our stupid government.This is happening even in Ghana. They charge exhorbitant school fees, tax and miscarriage of "justice" is rife. A Nigerian is simply an un-represented lone traveller. BUT WHY???...says The German Immigrant

As much as I refuse to badmouth naija, I just read this on ndi igbos page on FB and this posters outcry couldn't have broken my sentiments down any better:...Fuck You All Nigerian Embassies all over the World... Fuck You All Nigeria Top Government Assholes.... You Nigeria should be deleted from the World list entirely, I am totaly ashamed to present myself as Nigerian Born. Imagine, At the Club I went, European fought with Bouncer at the Club, he was injured and he just dialed his Embassy phone to come to his Rescue and of course within 24hrs his Embassy appeared to the case and handled it immediately, treating their fuck up and wanted to close down the Club, but look at Nigerian man who even traveled to Ukraine, paying all sort of Money to their country to study, look at the way they humiliated him... Look at poor innocent Brother suffering for nothing the so-called fucking Nigeria Government could not do anything about it..... I wish all of them will die vomiting Blood one day..

I have to alert Nigerians that Ukranians are very Racists and Bigoted ppl! U are advised to do ur research well b4 u travel to some of these countries! They hate and detest black ppl with a Passion.
Yes their school fees maybe cheap,but u must weigh btw a cheap school fees and the safety of ur lives. These ppl r also pagans and their economy is badly depressed. This is why they cut down the school fees to attract foreign students.U cannot work while u are there cos there is no job! The jobless uneducated racist ukranians r busy spreading hate literatures that these black ppl have come to take their non existent jobs.Racism is a potentially a white problem and sadly this problem is subtly encouraged by the authorities.I would advise Nigerians to avoid traveling to Ukraine or even Russia as a precautionary measure.

This is absolutely disgusting! reading through the article just makes my belly turn. My question is this: Why do Nigerians keep going to this country? It's the same in Poland. You keep queuing to get visa to a country that's got its fabric etched in racism. Is their University Degree that great??? This will make them look down on us like we have fish brains on something. Why pay your hard earned money into such racist country's economy??? Na by force to study abroad? can't they go somewhere else? I can imagine Olaolu's state of mind before making the decision to defend himself. Imagine if they managed to kill him, will they have been charged? definitely not. It's terrible that Nigerian Government have a lackadaisical approach to things like this. Fight for your own! UK government will fight for their own. #rantover

This is why it is very important to hold the feet of our leaders in Nigeria on fire,to do the right thing in our country!A lot of Nigerians are stuck with the Demon of Racism cos it is more preferable compared to what u deal with in Nigeria.I have been to England,France,Canada,and live in the US! In all of these countries,black ppl are treated with a lot of disrepect in society and at their work place just cos of the colour of their skin!
Unfortunately,most ppl back home think that as soon as u come to the U S,u have hit paradise. That's wrong! White America is visciously racist,and America is supposed to be the most developed economy in d world,so u can imagine a hungry country like ukraine and what it will be like to live among these animals! As the white man kicks us around like disposable garbbage,our own country treats us even worse!
Under normal circumstances,why shld a Nigerian go to Ukraine to study? For what? My father told me that in d seventies,foreigners used to troop into Nigeria to look for work! Indians,whites,Ghanaians etc. The question I ask my fellow countrymen is this;What went wrong?

Blacks are been racially battered everywhere and the fact that u are even Nigerian makes your case worse yet these idiots are been treated as demi-gods back home because of their skin and even have more rights than the Nigerians in Nigeria...these are the reasons why they feel we are inferior because apart from us not knowing our human rights we are still mentally colonized...the embassy representatives are just pure fools who are there not because they studied for d diplomatic job but because of connection or a favor from someone in power so how are they expected to know how to represent Nigerians?we really need to go out there to understand how inferior the white assholes treat us so we can do same to them back home and not hype them..Olaolu God would save u but honestly I can proudly say am racist and I show whites every bit of hatred they have shown blacks

As an aside, what are Nigerians doing in such strange hardship places? the Ukrainians are escaping from there to seek better opportunities elsewhere. Who is selling Nigerians this bill of goods to go to desolate places to live ot go to school. they don't have the best education system, do don't have money to take care of their citizens and a lot of them are racists yet we go there. For what? You have to spend at least a year learning the language first, when you have mastered that, you then start school to get a degree that may or may not be accredited. Terrible economy so you are not about to find a job to supplement your income. It is a hardship location worse than anything you can experience in naija yet we go there? Why?

Why don't these ppl do thorough research before going into some of these countries. Must they go into any and every place whether they are wanted or not? Who the hell would want to go to Russia anyways. Born and raised Russians are trying every which way to get out fast. It is a dismal place. I cannot see what could entice me to even go for a visit; it's cold, food sucks, every building is gray and the people are some of the surliest I have ever come across. Only when they are old and weak you see them being nicer and only because they don't have a choice.

Spend your money in places you are wanted and valued and leave these hell holes alone. Do your research before you leave home!

I wish this young man well and hopefully Amnesty International or some other place can take up his case. Maybe his friends could use one of the crowd funding sites to raise money to get a good, and unbiased lawyer, and to pay for translators. He needs supernatural support, so I hope the prayer warriors and mind science students are also working on his case.

Something good always comes out of a bad situation. Nigerians scattered around the world for whatever reason will one day become a benefit to the country itself, and I'll live to see the day other countries will see us far in front and wish for the kind of situation we r in now.

The worst country in the world is Ukraine,full of racism,but blacks in Ukraine are really really facing life very hard because no work for blacks.I don't blame the stupid racism country(Ukraine)because Nigeria is has no place for the poor,after 5 to 6 yrs in school come out as a graduate you hardly find a job, or less u are connected,If not no good work for the person,Nigeria embassy in Kiev Ukraine they don't even show care to Nigerians their,all they do is taken the little money student have for documents,other embassy's like i know hardly collect huge amount from student but Nigeria own is fixed charging money as if the person is not from the country too bad.

the sad truth is that Nigerian Embasssies DO NOT work to help Nigerians living abroad. They are only there to renew Nigerians' Passports and Consular Cards. I doubt they are even interested in helping theis student.

Those Ukrainian are big time racist, scared, lazy, incompetent and because we do better than their bunch put together......so fucking jealous. And we are far better than these people in all ramification just that our government doesn"t care much about the citizen>>>>>I believe a simple letter from the FG either through the presidency< senate or Reps may even solve this situation. Worst case they dismiss the guy from the school and send him back cos the next thing they will kill him>>>>>>>>>>>fucking Ukrainian

This is a fatal tragedy. The embassy of any country abroad should be able to defend its citizens facing any catastrophe. Nigerian Govt is extremely sick in all ways this is basically why most Nigerian believe they can live anywhere in the world no matter how the level of racism. I pray God Almighty will intervene in Olaolu's trial.

High time Nigerians start standing up to all these bloody whitewashed bastards. Who the heck do they think they are, if it comes to the worst, Nigerian government should play it by -do me, I do you- so that they know they alone can't be racist. How come, they come here wit their bony faces, work in (even control) some of our factories unmolested and feel they got the goddamn right to abuse us in their country anyhow. Those dimwitted embassy officials should know knw we got eyes on them and every commitee concerned wit diaspora n foriegn relations should knw getting olaolu outt of that hellhole is what they eat our fat billions for..
Stay cool bro, help is on its way. #angry

We consider it necessary to draw the attention of the reader, that the information provided here by African Outlook, is not completely true.
We do not know exactly who provided this information about the case of Olaolu, but obviously it is very distorted.
This may have occurred because of a lack of awareness and lack of knowledge of the Ukrainian legislation the person who provided this information, and therefore lack of possibility to assess the situation and everything that is being done to Olaolu.
For this reason, readers got a very wrong impression about the case of Olaolu.
If you want to get reliable information on the case, please contact: www.advokat-ua.org
We see a lot of comments about case of Olaolu from sympathetic people, but apart from the words of sympathy he really needs real help. He is being brought a meal every two to three weeks and the not the products it needs for proper nutrition, not to mention other outstanding issues are even more important for Olaolu support. Only sympathetic comments will not help Femi.
