'Nigerian PLWAs being killed in Libya'

Lagos- Nigeria (PANA) -- A concerned Nigerian citizen, Ikechukwu Nwabufor, has alleged that Nigerians living with HIV/AIDS are being killed by some medical doctors in Libya, according to a report in the private Punch newspaper Tuesday.
The paper quoted Nwabufor, General Manager of Sea Squard Records Ltd, as making the allegation during a media briefing on the HIV/AIDS awareness concert organised by the company and the African Refugees Foundation (ARF) in the commercial city of Lagos Monday.
``Quote me, anytime, any day, it is a true life story.
Nigerians living with HIV/AIDS in Libya are being killed.
I do not know why they are being killed,'' he said.
Nwabufor called on the Nigerian government and the Nigerian Embassy in Libya to take urgent steps to stop the alleged killing, adding: ''Government should get in touch with our Embassy there to take proper care of Nigerian citizens.
''Based on my experience over there, (and) the way people are being killed, I believe that there should be more enlightenment campaign about AIDS,'' he said.
