Odemu Efe, Nigerian, Died Of AIDS In Ethiopian Prison – Diaspora Commission

The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM)
has confirmed the death of a Nigerian, Odemu Efe,
at the Kaliti Prisons in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
The commission said Mr Efe died of HIV/AIDS
according to the death certificate issued by
Ethiopian health authorities.
Reports had suggested that Efe, a native of Warri,
Delta State, died of an undisclosed ailment.
The commission said the Nigerian Embassy in
Ethiopia revealed that “the former inmate had
been seriously ill and taken to two different
hospitals in Addis Ababa before he passed on”.
It also said that contrary to a statement credited
to a woman, Chika Nwachukwu, who accused
Nigerian officials of neglecting their countrymen
imprisoned in Ethiopia, the Nigerian High
Commissioner to the country, Adeoye Bankole,
visits inmates regularly.
Bankole was said to have visited the Kaliti Prison
in January 2019 with another visit scheduled to
hold between August and September.
The chairman of NIDCOM, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has
condoled with the deceased’s family.
Efe was serving a five-year prison sentence in an
Ethiopian Penitentiary having been convicted for
drug trafficking.
He had only served over a year before his death
on July 13.
The commission said his burial would be
undertaken soon through the assistance of
Ethiopian authorities and witnessed by the
consular representative of the Nigerian Embassy
