Backway: Missing boat carrying 35 Gunjurians found in Mauritania
A boat that left Gunjur beach on 8 November 2021 carrying would be migrants to mainland Spain has been found in Mauritania according to sources.
The occupants of the boat which include 35 young men from Gunjur are said to be detained in a notoriously cruel prison called DARU NAIM in the Mauritanian Capital, Nouakchott.
The said boat has gone missing since it left the shores of Gunjur on 8th November last year much to the despair of family and friends who were left in limbo as to the whereabouts of their loved ones who left the country in search of greener pastures in mainland Spain.
Information reaching GunjurOnline revealed that the boat was intercepted in Mauratina and the migrants arrested and taken to a detention centre/prison.
This medium is in possession of names of 35 young men from Gunjur who are said to be on the boat that left Gunjur on 8th November and are believed to be held in the notorious Dari NAIM prison in the Mauritanian Capital.
GunjuroOnline calls on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, MP for Kombo South and all relevant stakeholders to do everything within their powers to ensure that these young men are repatriated and reunited with their families as a matter of urgency as the conditions in the DARU NAIM prison are said to be terrible.
The news that the occupants of the December 8th boat being alive will be a comforting and welcome news to the families who have been worried about the whereabouts of their loved ones since they embarked on the journey to Spain over two months ago.
