Chinese Couple Arrested For Locking Up Nigerian Employees

In a previous post, I advised that I have no interest or investment in forced multiculturalism. And a recent story coming out of Nigeria helps support my stance.

The following information is from PUNCH.

A Chinese couple in Abuja, Nigeria, was arrested for allegedly locking their employees in their apartment for the past four months. The Utako Divisional Police Station rescued eight domestic workers after receiving a tip-off from a resident who reported the incident to the Human Rights radio station. The victims said that they’ve been locked in the apartment since February, advising that workers were not allowed to move out of the building. An unidentified worker stated the following:

“When I was seriously sick, I asked these people (Chinese employers) to open the gate for me, but they refused until I became very angry before they opened the door. I know my life may be at risk but I don’t mind, let the world know what is happening.

They told us that if someone was going out, he could help buy something for us, but when this man (referring to a colleague) went out to buy sachet water, they deducted his salary. What do they want us to do?

We had to stay in the room and talk to people through the windows. They didn’t give us food; apart from the salary, they didn’t give us anything; they even cut our salaries.”

The couple’s driver, Alex, stated the following:

“They never allowed us to go out since February; if any of us went out and they know, a certain percentage of the person’s salary would be deducted.

Even on Monday when this man (pointing at one of his co-workers) sent someone to buy water, N500 was deducted from his salary that has yet to be paid.”

Sources told PUNCH, however, that the rescued victims refused to cooperate with the police and claimed that they weren’t forcefully detained. Federal Capital Territory Police Command, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, advised that the investigation had commenced and that the Chinese couple was released on bail.

Nothing about this story surprised me. The sell-out leaders who allow foreigners into their countries to exploit locals, the docile mentality from many African people, and the overt disrespect from others is exhausting at this point. And oddly enough, they’re all interconnected.
