Nigerian Woman Among Rescued Migrants Gives Birth on Mediterranean Sea



Mediterranean Woman

A Nigerian woman who was one of nearly 6,800 migrants rescued in the Mediterranean in three days, gave birth to a baby girl on an Italian navy vessel while at sea.

Mommy and baby were said to be in good health on the Bettica ship, which was hosting 654 migrants saved in four different operations since Sunday, Guardian UK reports.

As a tribute to her naval rescuers, the baby was named Francesca Marina on Monday.

    Yes things may be hard in Nigeria but not bad enough to risk your life or that of your unborn child to travel to another country all in the name of greener pastures. Who told you the pastures are indeed green? And even if it is, it isn’t green all the time and not to everyone. Don’t let Facebook and Instagram deceive you.

      Don’t mind all theses crazy women. How anyone can do this is beyond imagination. Only God knows how many kilometers trekked before finally getting on the boat. Two of the people interviewed on BBC yesterday are Nigerian. At least from the accent but both covered their faces. If it were such a honorable thing, l wonder why they covered their faces. And the rubbish they were yarning – “l hv a right to look for a better future for my family…..” Really? On a boat to Europe? Anyways, Oyinbo dey tolerate shaaa. Left to me, put the baggars back to Whereever on the same boat. Such disgraceful lot.
