Nigerian-born cleric, Bishop Enoch Adebayo has said at least 500 Nigerian youths are languishing in Japanese prisons over alleged drugs and other related offences.

Speaking to newsmen in Lagos, Adebayo, who is the President of the Nigeria-Japan Chamber of Commerce based in Japan, yesterday said that the Federal Government should take immediate action to save the lives of the youths.

“But the Chamber has been educating more than 3,000 Nigerians among them and the youths resident in Japan, that the future of Nigeria is very rosy and bountiful, which will propel Nigeria to come a world power in the next 10 years.

“Nigerian youths should be honest, hardworking, resourceful, faithful and be able to plan ahead. We have been educating them not to cross the ‘red line’ in order not to fall into the same temptation and mistakes our past leaders found themselves.”

He therefore urged Nigerian leaders to “live by example because the youths and their children are watching their footsteps.”

Adebayo also reiterated the Nigeria-Japan Chamber of Commerce’s commitment to attracting many manufacturing companies, including vehicle manufacturers, to Nigeria.

He however urged the government to provide an enabling environment for Nigerian businessmen to operate, so that they will stop relocating.
