Dabiri-Erewa Condemns Destruction Of Vehicles At Nigerian Embassy In London

Chairman/CEO, Nigerians In Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has described the attitude of a 32-year old Nigerian, Jeffrey Apkovweta Ewohime who destroyed several properties of the Nigerian embassy in London as despicable and condemnable.

In a statement by her media aide, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, on Monday, she said that such an attitude was unpatriotic, and an unconscionable act of indiscipline.

Dabiri-Erewa said she received a report that Emohime went to the Nigeria Embassy in London on Monday where he carried out the condemnable acts.

“He had approached the Embassy to collect his passport which expired since Nov 2017 at about 2 pm and was told collection of passports closes at 1pm.

“He then insisted on collecting his passport, and was told to bring his collection slip which he could not produce.

“According to reports from the Embassy, it would of course be wrong to hand over his passport to him, without his collection slip.

“He thereafter left agitated and returned from a nearby hotel to destroy about seven cars, 5 belonging to the mission, and 2 to visitors who parked nearby.

“His attempt to destroy the High Commissioner’s car failed as it is a bullet proof.

“I am told that he has been arrested by the police.

“This is a despicable act, which must be condemned by all. Of course, the law must take its course,” she said.

Dabiri-Erewa implored Nigerians abroad to exercise restraint and be good ambassadors of Nigeria at all times in all circumstances.

ALEDEH had earlier reported that 32-year-old Apkovweta caused damages to several diplomatic vehicles at the Nigerian Embassy in London after he was denied his passport.
