Abike Dabiri-Erewa

The Federal Government through the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) has demanded justice for a Nigerian George Nkencho, 27, killed in Ireland.

In a statement on Thursday signed by the commission’s spokesman Abdur-Rahman Balogun, NIDCOM chairman/CEO Abike Dabiri-Erewa condemned in strong terms the killing of Mr Nkencho.

Mrs Dabiri-Erewa described as “callous and wicked” the killing of the Nigerian by a police officer.

She, therefore, called for a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding the killing.

The NIDCOM boss appealed to the enraged Nigerian community in Ireland to exercise patience and wait for the outcome of investigation into the unfortunate incident.

She condoled with the family of the deceased and the Nigerian community in Ireland over the incident and prayed God to give the victim’s family and friends fortitude to bear the loss.
