The Nigerian government has described as despicable, unwarranted and condemnable the alleged destruction of property at the Nigerian High Commission in London, United Kingdom by a Nigerian citizen.
The 32 year old Nigerian, Jeffrey Akpovweta Ewohime was in the High Commission on June 17th, 2019 to collect his international passport after the closure of the Passport Section. He insisted on collecting his passport but failed to provide the collection slip required.
Ewohime left the High Commission agitated . He, however, returned later and damaged five cars belonging to the High Commission and two cars belonging to visitors to the High Commission.
Reacting in a statement released on Monday, Chairman and CEO of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) Abike Dabiri-Erewa said such an attitude was unpatriotic, and an unconscionable act of indiscipline.
She also urged all Nigerians abroad to exercise restraint and be of good behaviour on the grounds of our Missions.
