Nigeria (Afrika)


2.285 zum Tode Verurteilte befanden sich Amnesty International zufolge im Jahr 2017 in nigerianischen Todestrakten und dies unter grausamsten Bedingungen.

 

Die Gefängnisse und Haftbedingungen in nigerianischen Todestrakten gleichen mittelalterlichen Kerkern und erinnern an die Zeiten der Sklaverei: Bis zu zehn Insassen teilen sich fensterlose Zellen, die nicht größer als 2 x 3 Meter sind und weder Betten noch Toiletten haben.

Slavery Days are gone

by Arthur Judah Angel

 

Slavery Days are gone

Slavery Days are here

 

Man who’s not being tried

What things does he know

 

The wind is rough

When no wind is no friend

 

Sure the storm is here raging

The tempest rumbles troubled bad

 

It’s night twenty four hours

Our carbine a sleeping train

 

Death row what a hell it was

The balcony the hangman’s highway

 

Good friends we met

Good friends we lost

 

This deadly voyage what a shame

I sat in limbo such a time.

 

The innocent sometimes were lost

Some guilty by chance were spared

 

Time and chance here happen to man

And this voyage of ours rolls on
