By way of an update on the Olufolajimi Abegunde situation (the Nigerian wrongfully held in custody by the US authorities), the last word on this issue was that a team from the Nigerian Consulate/Nigerian Embassy would be visiting him at the West Tennessee Detention Facility, to learn about the situation and act on his behalf. We can confirm that attempts have been made by the Nigerian consulate to make contact, but the relevant authorities in the US government are yet to honor this request.

Abegunde’s legal team have also continued to request for evidence linking him to the said Fraud crime, per our best knowledge, is nonexistence or unsubstantiated.
Thus, this medium appeals to the good citizens of Nigeria to help in driving this message to the US government to act promptly and respond to requests. .
Mr. Abegunde has severally stated that there is an element of racial bias being the underlining motivation in the actions of the US authorities.
A highly respected federal judge in Memphis Tennessee area, expressed his concern on this issue by stating that it seems Federal authorities around Tennessee area act and prosecute based on racial bias. Judge Fowlkes of Memphis Tennessee expressed these concerns while trying an unrelated case of drug possession and distribution, The black man is being charged further with possession of a firearm while the white man isn’t, even though their aim was to sell the drugs together.
The above case shows that Olufolajimi’s claims of racial mistreatment may just be valid and should be taken into account. It is also of utmost importance to draw the attention of our Nigerian leaders to look into this matter and give it the required attention it so requires.
The following social media platforms have been set up for this singular purpose. .
