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.”

 

Ukraine has become a battlefield following the invasion of the country by Russia more than a week ago.
