The authors of this article are worried about the spate of deaths en route to Europe by migrants. Several discussions are ongoing and migration policies are churned out in Europe to control the upsurge of migrants to Europe. However, the policies to check traffic, the higher the risk and the more the resilience by the migrants. The worry of these paper is why the beneficiaries of the deaths (Africa) seem not to worry about the control of migration? Why is the world keeping silence on the ‘conflict axis’? We argue that the reasons why African countries in particular, Nigeria is indifferent is because they don’t have value for human lives and again, due to the ‘equi-marginal’ benefits of both the North and South.
