FG condemns destruction of vehicles at London’s Nigerian Embassy



Abike Dabiri

The federal government has condemned the attitude of a 32-year old Nigerian, Jeffrey Apkovweta Ewohime  who destroyed several vehicles of the Nigerian Embassy in London, United Kingdom, describing it despicable and condemnable.
Chairman/Chief Executive of the Nigerians In Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement by her Special Adviser on Media aide, Alhaji Abdur-Rahman Balogun, said that such an attitude was unpatriotic, and an unconscionable act of indiscipline.
The chairman said she received a report that Emohime went to the Nigeria Embassy in London on Monday,
According to her, Emohime “had approached the Embassy to collect his passport which expired since Nov 2017 at about 2 p.m 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 near by.
“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.
“He destroyed seven brand new cars, except the Ambassador’s car which is bullet proof.
“This is a despicable act, which must be condemned by all. Of course, the law must take its course”, Dabiri-Erewa stated.
The NIDCOM boss therefore implored Nigerians abroad to exercise restraint and be good ambassadors of Nigeria at all times in all circumstances.
