Former Aviation Minister Femi Fani-Kayode has condemned Morocco and other coastal North African countries for the deaths of African migrants.

In a video, he claimed that some Southern European Union countries and many coastal north African countries have formed an evil pact to apprehend and kill African migrants. This, they claim, is to “prevent them from crossing into Europe.”

This has sparked widespread outrage. The African Bar Association (AfBA) has also condemned the heinous killing of dozens of African migrants attempting to cross from Morocco to Spain via the Spanish island of Melilla.
AfBA also stated that Melilla and Ceuta are “the European Union’s only land borders with Africa, guarded by barbed wire and surveillance cameras.”

In a statement, AFBA President Hannibal Uwaifo said, “The AfBA condemns the grisly and unprovoked killing of dozens of African migrants who were hacked to death by Moroccan Security Officials while trying to make their way to Spain, through the Morocco-Spain land border, and we term this action a crime against humanity.”

“AfBA reiterates that migrants, even if they are irregular migrants, have the right to be protected under international humanitarian law, to which Morocco has agreed.” In brutally annihilating unarmed African migrants, Moroccan authorities acted as a rogue state and violated international law.

“We demand that Morocco be suspended from the African Union and all African Multilateral Organizations, including the African Development Bank (AfDB), the Confederation of African Football (CAF), and other Continental Sports Bodies,” the body stated.
