"Anthony, how did you define youth migration the other day?" I asked putting up a frontal mien.
"Migration is the deadly transit from Nigeria to Libya through the perils and risks of starvation, dehydration and death; far from the nightmare of frustration, poverty, brain-drain and unemployment in Nigeria.” He answered impulsively with a kind of well meaning sarcasm.
Startled, I marveled at the alacritous briskness with which he answered the question. “How is that supposed to absolutely explain a multifarious issue like international migration?” I probed further.
“You may not understand. We were about 2,000 youths that left Nigeria in 2007. Over 50% died already, just few of us made it back home. Ask Papa-Du he’ll give you more details” He replied.
Completely patronized by Tony’s informed description of local and intercontinental migration, I gave in to his putdowns. And I listened as he told a tale of his personal tragic migration experience to Libya…and back.
