Three arrested Nigerians on hunger strike

The three jailed Nigerians, Anane Innocent, Olcoro Ndidi and Sunday Onye Lucky, went on a hunger strike from yesterday demanding that the Goa State Human Rights Commission (GSHRC) record their statements in the jail. The jail authorities had faxed their request letter to the commission yesterday.

The secretary of the (GSHRC) Bhalachandra Mahale visited the Aguada Central Jail in Morth Goa on Friday afternoon to record the statements of three Nigerians, who were in judicial remand following a tussle with the police after one of the Nigerians was killed in a Parra village.

The trio are part of the 52 Nigerians remanded to judicial custory by a court in Mapusa after they were arrested in the highway ruckus in north Goa. The Nigerians were protesting against the murder of one of their compatriots in Parra village on the night of October 30.

While 26 Nigerians are in Aguada Central jail, the other 26 Nigerians are in judicial custody in Sada Jail in Vasco in south Goa
