NIGERIAN FEMALE JOURNALIST JAILED BY ABACHA
Nigerian journalist Christine Anyanwu, Chief-Editor of the independent ‘Sunday Magazines”, she was convicted to 15 years by military court and jailed in 31 May 1995 following an article published in the magazine. Christine Anyanwu, won in December 1995 the ‘Reporter without border-Foundation of France’ prize.
In July 1995, a special military tribunal secretly tried Anyanwu and sentenced her to life imprisonment for treason. On 1 October 1995, her life sentence was commuted to fifteen years in prison by the Provisional Ruling Council. Anyanwu was transferred to a prison in Bama, north-eastern Nigeria, notorious for its poor conditions. At the end of 1997, she was being held at Kadu Prison in Kaduna State and was in desperate need of medical attention for her deteriorating eyesight
In an interview published in the 17 June 1998 edition of the independent Lagos-based newspaper “PM News”, titled “I Saw Hell in Abacha’s Prison”, Anyanwu made the following remarks immediately after exiting the prison where she had been held since late 1997:
“The whole experience was filled with frustration and all sorts of insults. Yes, Prof. Soyinka wrote a book about Kaduna Prison, the man died. It is killing for one to go through all these terrible experiences, and everyday you ask yourself, `Am I dreaming? Can this be real? What am I doing here?’ Experiences in the prison where human beings die almost on a daily basis due to ill treatment are confirmed to me. Nigerian prisons are a hell where one should thank her god if one eventually comes out alive.”
She was released from prison in Kaduna during the evening of 16 June 1998.
Years after her release from Prison, Anyanwu still has problems with her eyesight due to medical negligence during her three-year incarceration period.- Asiri magazine
