Supporters Club during press parley in lagos
Nigeria football supporters club during the week held a press parley to announce its latest project, the Nigeria football fans congress, which is to help curb the incessant deaths of Nigerian and African youth on the Mediterranean sea and the Sahara desert.


The project with the theme; Red Card to deaths on the Mediterranean and the Sahara desert, according to the chief host and national chairman of the Nigeria Football supporters club, Rev. Samuel Ikpea, is essentially aimed at sensitizing the public of the dangers inherent in such methods of migration in pursuit of the proverbial greener pastures.


" We are deeply worried particularly on continuous and unabated bad news about how energetic Nigerian and African youths are dying daily on the Mediterranean sea due to illegal migrations.
" And in order to end this unwholesome and avoidable loss of lives, we are partnering with humanitarian organisations and relevant government agencies to deliver lectures on the dangers associated with such journeys," Ikpea explained.


Also speaking on the occasion, Atlanta'96 Olympic gold medalist, Chioma Ajunwa Oparah, expressed her concern on the illegal immigration that has continued to cause deaths on the Mediterranean sea.
" I am giving my unalloyed support to this project. And I also commend the organizers for coming up with this laudable idea.
