A video is making rounds of some Nigerian men rescued after they tried to leave the country illegally through a vessel called Clearocean Marauder.

The men were said to be be fleeing the country to Europe by sea. They were seen underneath the vessel and was rescued with a rope into another boat.

Reacting to this video, some Nigerians took to social media to share their concerns.

The only way someone will stupidly risk their lives for the deadly sea is because they believe the sea is safer than their is to those that have ruined this nation...people will not risk their lives stupidly if the country is good. Its still a very stupid move anyways that's not the way to go.

Actually, it was a lucky day for them cos they would not make it alive.

And the supposed leaders still feign ignorance on the terrible state of the economy.

Before now I’ll blame the boys but with the state of the nation and the hopelessness in the air, it’s really hard to keep blaming people who try to escape illegally. The government needs to do better and do right by it’s people.

I don’t blame them sha, this country can drive someone crazy.
