Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, 

NIDCOM, has met with the Libyan Ambassador to Nigeria Amb. Ayad  M.F. 

Attayary in Abuja to demand justice over the burning to death  of a Nigerian in Tripoli last week.

NIDCOM in a statement issued by Gabriel Odu of its Media, Public Relations and Protocol unit said Dabiri-Erewa stressed that, “all we want is justice and ensuring that the perpetrators are brought to book”

The Libyan envoy gave assurances of an open and transparent Libyan legal 

system where justice will be served on the three alleged killers.

 Amb. Attayary painted a sordid picture of migrants still losing their lives off the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara desert in all attempts to make it to Europe.

It could be recalled that early last week reports by major news networks indicate that a Nigerian was set ablaze in a factory allegedly by three Libyan Nationals. 

This act has been condemned by the International Organisation for Migration, the United Nations and the Libyan Interior Ministry. 

Though the full identity of the Nigerian has not been made known, but the three alleged killers, according to the Libyan Envoy are under full investigation and interrogations and will face judgement soon
