Nigerian students fear death

THE EIGHT NIGERIAN students who have ignored an order by their government to return home say they are facing imprisonment or certain death if they do so.

And they are pleading with Prime Minister Freundel Stuart to intervene on their behalf.

The students revealed their fears to this newspaper yesterday after two vans arrived at the St James guest house where they are staying, at the crack of dawn, to take them to the airport.

They refused to board the vans but the drivers remained outside their gates for over four hours, only leaving when the students’ attorney, Douglas Trotman, turned up and spoke to them. (MB)
