Kaliti is a maximum-security prison in Addis Ababa.

An inmate at the Kaliti Prisons in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia has died after an undisclosed ailment, SaharaReporters has gathered.

Kaliti is a maximum-security prison in Addis Ababa.

The deceased identified as Moses Sah Tiwachi was among about 500 inmates of African descent at the prison facility.

Several inmates in the facility were said to have fallen ill due to malnourishment. They are reportedly fed once a day with white rice, without sauce, all year round.

Basil Lawrence Ilobi, a Nigerian inmate from Delta State, has been suffering from a stroke for an extended period.

Multiple sources told SaharaReporters that Tiwachi died last week as a result of poor medication after he took ill.

They described the incident as an effect of corruption and poor state of hygiene and health services in the prison facility.

“A Liberian man died here in Kaliti prison in Ethiopian. He died of kidney failure, sadly no treatment, no medicine.

“One of our Nigerian brothers may die soon too as he has been abandoned by the Ethiopian government. He has been denied access to medical care. He has a stroke and his name is Lawrence,” one of the inmates told SaharaReporters.

The source also alleged that Nigerian officials have demonstrated a disregard for the well-being of citizens imprisoned abroad, neglecting their welfare and failing to provide adequate support.

He alleged that there was no commitment on the part of the Nigerian government to facilitate their repatriation even when the Ethiopian authorities were willing to release the inmates.

The detainee said they suffer grave human rights abuses in prison.

In 2023, two Nigerians, Chizoba Eze and Uchenna Nwanneneme, died in Kaliti Prison following alleged physical aggression and poor medication.
