Turkish Cypriot media finally write about claims that about 100 Nigerians have died mysteriously in the country

North Cyprus media has finally carried the news coming out of Nigeria that over 100 Nigerians have died mysteriously in the country.

This is coming days after the CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Hon. Abike Dabiri Erewa issued a warning to parents not to send their children to North Cyprus for studies because Nigerians are being killed there. 

However, these claims were unfounded and not all true.

On Friday, Turkish Cypriot daily, published a post with the headline "Nigerian government demand an investigation into the death of a Nigerian student who died in Kyrenia last year"

The newspaper went on to say; 

The Nigerian government has called for an investigation into the death of 25-year-old student Ibrahim Khalel Bello, who died in Kyrenia last year. 

The Nigerian government's Diaspora Commission said Bello was one of about 100 Nigerians who 'mysteriously' died in Northern Cyprus in the past four years.

Northern Cyprus officials stated that the student committed suicide. But Bello's mother, Nigerian Supreme Court Judge, Amina Ahmad Bello, believes her son was killed and calls for justice.

According to his family, Ibrahim Khalel Bello, a Civil engineering student phoned her home on 19 October last year where he said he was "afraid of being killed." He expressed his thought that, "If I die, nobody's hair will move."

A few hours after this phone call, he was found dead in front of his apartment building.

Northern Cypriot officials said his death was 'suicide'. But his family never accepted the court order. 

'Do not go to Northern Cyprus' warning from the Diaspora Commission
This week, her mother, Amina Ahmad Bello, a Nigerian Supreme Court Judge, called on the government's Diaspora Commission to formally investigate her son's death.

Having listened to Amina Ahmad Bello's request, the Nigerian government expressed concern about 'a series of unexplained deaths'.

According to the commission, about one hundred Nigerians 'mysteriously' died in northern Cyprus in the last four years. 

Northern Cypriot officials have not yet responded to the Nigerian government regarding the allegations. The Diaspora Commission warned Nigerians not to go to Northern Cyprus for education.
