I couldn’t believe my eyes when I watched this video, to think people would actually try this? I know most of you aren’t Igbo and may not understand the narrator but I tried translating it to English. Read below:

"If you look at this video, you will see Igbo boys, Nigerian boys, all dead and littered all over Sahara Desert. These boys made a decision to trek to Europe through Sahara Desert, Niger Republic. There are no trees and no water, and at some point resorted to drinking their urine and at some point that ran out as well. They coudn’t protect themselves from the oppressive sun and therefore dried out , the sun has embalmed them and they can remain in this state for 100 years without decaying.Kindly appeal to your friends and relatives not to venture going to Europe through this means. Beware of facilitators of such schemes who are quick to convince you with maps, detailing the proximity between Morocco , Europe and Spain, Italy and Libya therefore making it seem easy to try.
The video you’re watching is the consequence of such harebrained schemes
Most times you have between 50 -100 men starting the journey with less than 5 persons surviving.
A lot of families believe that their sons and brothers are actually in Europe and are still expecting them to get in touch , not knowing that they are actually dead in the desert.
Wherever you are, be it in Nigeria or abroad, remain steadfast and God will bless the work of your hands……"
Need I say more?
I have a grouse with the narrator though, how can he honestly tell that these are Igbos/Nigerians?
