Osemwingie said he learnt about the plight of the innocent young Nigerians during his wrongful detention in Italy as a result of a “very corrupt and complex system.”The former commissioner, who spoke during an interview onArise TV,on Friday, said the youths were committed to maximum prisons in Italy because they did not have the resources to access an independent lawyer.

“They don’t have money to get lawyers; the prosecutor gives them government lawyers that he uses to manipulate them,” the ex-commissioner noted.He further called for the collaboration of all stakeholders including the Federal Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission and the media, among others to ensure the release of the youths. headtopics.com
