AGBOR/Nigeria: In their bid to create more awareness on the dangers associated with illegal migrations, Volunteers of Migrant As Messengers (MAM) have embarked on a public enlightenment campaign in Ika South Local Government Area of Delta State.

The group, which took its message to the St. Columbus Grammar School and the ever busy Uromi Junction in Agbor, warned against illegal migrations, arguing that many destinies had been cut short by taking deadly routes in a bid to migrate to Europe.

Speaking during the exercise, the coordinator of the group, Mr. Godspower Nkwor, said “if you have the intention of traveling out of the country illegally, please bury such thought because the risk is too high.”

“There is no tree that breeds money in abroad.

The pictures traffickers paint are false, just to lure innocent people. There is no free meal anywhere,” he stated.

Mr. Nkwor observed that most of those who planned to travel to Europe through illegal routes were either forced into slavery thereafter, or killed for rituals, while some others were imprisoned.

“In the so called abroad, there are beggars and homeless people; an indication that all is not rosy over there.”

“Some parents even go to the extent of disposing off the only landed property to send their children abroad, not knowing minding what those children would be exposed to over there,” he argued

Speaking further, he averred that traveling abroad in search of greener pastures was not evil, saying that anyone that must travel should travel via the right processes.
