IMMIGRANTS. 13 DEAD DURING CROSSING, 5 ARRESTS IN SIRACUSA

Italy

(AGI) - Siracusa, Oct 13 - Five Nigerians have been charged with the death of 13 immigrants, all men, while trying to reach the coast of Portopalo di Capo Passero (Siracusa). The police has arrested the five who were also on board of the boat which left Libya with 71 people, among whom women and children, almost all from Ghana and Nigeria. Only 58 made it to Sicily.
The survivors told the investigators that they have seen the arrested Nigerians throw some of the 13 victims into the water, after they showed themselves nervous during the voyage. Others would voluntarily have left the boat out of desperation. Once on land the police had already identified and arrested three people smugglers, among also one of the five arrested Nigerians charged with homicide. The other four were detained in the temporary shelter of Cassibile. The arrests were confirmed this morning by the investigating judge of the Court of Siracusa.

IGNORANCE!!!!
in my daily contact with Nigerians that crossed over (in the Refugee identification camps) I have continued to explain to them what Panic attachs mean

...Panic attacks are sudden, discrete periods of intense anxiety, mounting physiological arousal, fear, stomach problems and discomfort that are associated with a variety of somatic and cognitive symptoms.....

BUT IT IS A GREAT UPHILL TASK TO EXPLAIN TO THE PHENMENON TO THIS GENERATION OF IGNORANT YOUTHS WHO HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED BY HALF BAKED PASTORS IN NIGERIA. tHE RATHER BELIEVE I DO NOT UNDERSTAND ANYTHING OR BEING TOO OYIBO NOT TO SEE THAT THE DEMON INHABITS IN SOME PEOPLE WHO WOULD ACT STRANGLY ON THE SEA.
I WILL SAY MOR ON THS LATER IN THE DAY HERE ON IN MY BLOG
