[MUST READ] “There is DANGER in Dubai”- Aisha Falode warns Nigerian Parents

Veteran broadcaster Aisha Falode, who lost her
son, Toba in February this year, has written an
open letter to Pres. Jonathan and Nigerians on the
swift response to the loss of
DSP Alameiyeseigha‘s son in Dubai with no word or
action taken in the case of Toba’s murder in Dubai
eight months after. See the letter after the cut..

It is with a heavy heart that I read about the
death of the son of Chief Alameiyeseigha on the
streets of Dubai; an incident that immediately
jolted me back in time thanks to the bizarre
similarities to that of my son as regards “cause
of death”.

My son was said by the Dubai
authorities to have jumped down from a
balcony, dismissing it as “suicide”, same with
Chief Alameiyeseigha’s son.

I am saddened that this has happened despite
my nationwide campaign to stop this happening
AGAIN by putting all relevant government
agencies on notice, in vain.

For record
emphasis, my son was thrown from the
balcony of a 17th floor apartment in
Manchester Tower in Dubai.
A Saudi boy resident in Dubai confessed to the
murder; he had my son’s blood on his t-shirt,
he had my son’s blood on his knuckles and
boasted about serving time for 25 years in
prison if it comes to the worst.

His murderer
has a name-Faisal Aldakmary Al-Nasser.

There were witnesses to this murder, they
have written statements verbally and orally
corroborating what the murderer said.
I have put all this together to make this easy
for the Nigerian government to help me get
justice for my son in Dubai.

I warned the
Nigerian government that Nigerian youths were
being killed in Dubai on a daily basis as
confirmed by our embassy in Dubai.
I also warned parents about the danger of
Dubai. I also stated repeatedly, that if justice
was not gotten for my son that another murder
will happen. Indeed there have been many
more after my son although not mentioned
because they do not have a voice.

But now,
there is one so close to government that has
been struck. I did not have to be a soothsayer
to know this. Many more will happen until we
get Justice for Toba Falode, and all those who
have been murdered in cold blood in Dubai.

We cannot stand by and watch our youths lives
being down played over and above
“collaboration and partnership” with a country
that hates us with so much passion, that they
are cutting down the lives of our young ones in
cold blood crudely and viciously and yet we
seek “partnership and collaboration” in
investment with this same country.

Our ambassador in the UAE,
AmbassadorIbrahim Auwalu, must be called
back to Nigeria to answer to every young soul
that has been lost to Dubai unaccounted for
due to his lack of responsibility in office. The
Foreign Ministry also, must be asked questions
on what they have done about Toba Falode’s
case 8 months after.

It took Israel less than 48 hours to act on the
loss of their 3 youths. 8 months after Toba
Falode’s murder, we are still waiting on the
Nigerian government to give us any kind of
reaction on the loss of a young life-Toba
Falode in Dubai. Even after submitting every
evidence, our protest, police reports
corroborating the fact that my son was
murdered, we still have gotten no response at
all from the Nigerian government. Take a queue
from Israel.

And the Nigerian Government for once should
start acting like a big country with so much
might and power that it is in the continent and
indeed in the world and go after Dubai for
justice for every young soul and every Nigerian
life that has been cut short in Dubai.

We send
our sympathy and condolences to DSP
Alamieyeseigha. The family and friends of their
son, we empathise with them because we have
been through and are still going through it and
it is nothing we wish for any parent which was
our concern from the start.

This, is one death too many. May it not happen
again.Aisha Falode.
