Nnamdi Okafor: I’d Rather Be A Refugee Or Die In Ukraine Than Return To Nigeria
NewsReport gathered that Nnamdi Okafor, a Nigerian living in Ukraine, has stated his intention to become a refugee rather than return to Nigeria.
He stated this in a Friday interview with TheNiche Newspapers.
When asked why he wasn’t using the Federal Government’s evacuation flights to return home, he replied, “What am I returning to Nigeria for? Is there any progress in our country?”
“For the time being, I am still in Ukraine,” the 32-year-old Anambra native explained. I used to live in Kyiv, the capital city, but I’ve since relocated to one of the border villages, which is currently relatively safe.
“But if the war reaches there, I will escape to another country by the grace of God. But if death becomes my destiny, so be it. I would rather be here as a refugee than return to Nigeria.”
