Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, has met with the Libyan Ambassador to Nigeria Ayad M.F. Attayary, in Abuja to demand justice over the burning to death of a Nigerian in Tripoli last week.
The NIDCOM boss stressed that “all we want is justice ensuring that the perpetrators are brought to book”.
The Libyan envoy assured of open and transparent Libyan legal system where justice is served on the three alleged killers.
Attayary painted a sordid picture of migrants still losing their lives off the Mediterranean Sea and the Sahara desert in their attempts to make Europe.
A statement by NIDCOM recalled that early last week reports by major news networks stated that a Nigerian was allegedly set ablaze in a factory by three Libyan Nationals.
The action had been condemned by the International Organisation for Migration, the United Nations and the Libyan Interior Ministry.
Although the full identity of the Nigerian has not been made public, but the three alleged killers are under full investigation and interrogations and will be prosecuted soon.
