Controversy over nationality of baby Nigerian woman gave birth to on international waters
The nationality of the baby boy a Nigerian woman, an illegal economic migrant travelling by sea with her spouse and two children gave birth to on international waters is under debate, international humanitarian NGO, Doctors Without Borders said.
The newborn has been named Newman Otis by his parents, Otis Ogunbor and Faith Ogunbor, who had left Libya with their sons Victory, seven, and Rollres, five, and were plucked from the overcrowded boat in the Mediterranean and taken to the MV Aquarius.
Twenty four hours after they were rescued from an overcrowded rubber boat, Newman was born aboard a rescue vessel in the Mediterranean Sea.
But because the baby was born in international waters, his nationality was still under debate.
Doctors Without Borders communications officer, Alva White reported the baby’s birth in a series of tweets: “Just over an hour ago a baby boy was born on board the Aquarius. Mum, baby, dad and 2 big brothers are all well.”
“The gorgeous little guy was born in international waters so his nationality is still under discussion.”
