FG probes killing of Nige­ri­ans abroad

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Isi­aka Wak­ili

Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari has or­dered an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the re­cent killings of some Nige­ri­ans abroad.

The Se­nior Spe­cial As­sis­tant to the Pres­i­dent on For­eign Af­fairs and Di­as­pora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, dis­closed this late Sun­day.

She said on the Chan­nels Tele­vi­sion News at 10pm which was mon­i­tored by our re­porter that Pres­i­dent Buhari had in­structed that the in­ves­ti­ga­tion be car­ried out to en­sure that jus­tice is done.

She spoke against the back­drop of the re­cent killing of a Nige­rian, Em­manuel Chidi Nnamdi, in Italy barely a few days after an­other Nige­rian, Fola Ora­biyi, a teenager, was stabbed to death in the United King­dom.

Ac­cord­ing to her, the pres­i­dent will not con­done the killing of Nige­ri­ans any­where in the world.

“This (killing of Nige­ri­ans abroad) will not be tol­er­ated by this ad­min­is­tra­tion,” she said. Dabir­iErewa had ear­lier in a state­ment said the mur­der of in­no­cent Nige­ri­ans abroad was dis­turb­ing the peo­ple and gov­ern­ment of Nige­ria.

She re­it­er­ated Pres­i­dent Buhari’s com­mit­ment to cit­i­zen diplo­macy and pro­tec­tion of Nige­ri­ans wher­ever they may be.
