Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora to President Buhari has expressed serious worries over the death of young Nigerians in the UK.
Dabiri-Erewa followed up on her protest by writing another protest letter to the British High Commissioner in Nigeria demanding justice and investigation into the matter.
Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari is not turning deaf ears to the murder of young Nigerians under the age of 30 in the last four months in the United Kingdom.
Against the backdrop of the reported killings, Buhari's Senior Special Assistant on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has expressed serious worries.
Dabiri-Erewa, a three term lawmaker, advised Nigerians to be careful and exercise restraint while expressing her worries over the recent killings of Nigerians in the UK.
In a statement by her Media Aide, Abdur-Rahman Balogun in Abuja on Monday, April 9, 2018, Dabiri-Erewa said the increased killings of the blacks, especially those of Nigeria origin in London, is very worrisome and disturbing.
The apparently worried Presidential aide had made a move to check the killings and prevent further murder of young Nigerians below the age of 30.
Dabiri-Erewa, just before the Easter celebrations, followed up on her protest by writing another protest letter to the British High Commissioner in Nigeria demanding justice and investigation into the matter.
The Presidential aide however, advised Nigerians to continue to be good ambassadors of Nigeria by obeying the rules of their host country and not take laws into their hands.
The former journalist and TV host also condoled with the affected families of the deceased and prayed unto God to comfort them as the Government continues to seek for justice and bringing to book the perpetrators of the gruesome killings.
Within the spate of the first four months in 2018, seven Nigerian youths under the age of 30-years-old have been murdered in cold blood in the United Kingdom.
The Nigerian communities in the UK have continued to mourn youthful members of the communities that have been hacked down as a result of gang wars or cruel murder since January 2018.
It was reported that over 50 blacks, mainly youths, were either stabbed or gunned down in the first quarter of 2018 in London alone.
Nigerian boys killed in the UK in the first quarter of 2018, mainly London, include Oluwadamilola Odeyingbo 18, Taofeek Lamidi, 20 and Harry Uzoka, 25.
Others were Rotimi Oshinbajo, 26, Fola Odubiyi, 18, Niyi Shode ,24, Kelvin Odunuyi, 19, Abraham Badru ,26, Israel Ogunsola, 18 and more unreported cases.
