Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman /CEO,
Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), has condemned in strong terms the killing of Mr George Nkencho, a 27-year-old Nigerian in Ireland.
In a statement by Abdur-Rahman Balogun, NIDCOM Head of Media and Public Relations, described the death of a young Nigerian by a Police officer as callous and wicked.
Dabiri-Erewa, who was apparently disturbed by the killing, called for a
full, thorough and fair investigation into the matter.
She appealed to the obviously enraged Nigerian community in Ireland to exercise patience and await the outcome of investigation into the unfortunate incident.
The NIDCOM boss condoled with the family of Nkencho and the Nigerian
community in Ireland over the killing of George and prayed God to give the family and friends the fortitude to bear the irreplaceable loss.
Already, the African Advocacy Network Ireland (AANI) has expressed shock
to learn about the callous shooting dead of George Nkencho on Wednesday,
The group said the circumstances surrounding the killing of a mentally
challenged young man has enraged the African community and demanded a
full independent public inquiry.
