Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), has demanded for justice for a Nigerian who was burnt to death on Oct. 7 in Tripoli, Libya.
Dabiri-Erewa made this known to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday, after meeting with the Libyan Ambassador to Nigeria, Ayad Attayary, in Abuja.
The NiDCOM Chief stressed: “all we want is justice to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book”.
Responding, the Libyan envoy gave assurances of an open and transparent Libyan legal system where justice is served on the three alleged killers.
The Libyan authorities have announced the arrest of three Libyans who are suspected to have killed the Nigerian migrant worker by setting him on fire.
The act has been condemned by the International Organisation for Migration, the United Nations and the Libyan Interior Ministry.
Also, the United Nations has also described the killing of the Nigerian man as another senseless crime against migrants in the Country.
However, the full identity of the Nigerian man has not been made known as investigations and interrogations of the suspected attackers who are in custody is still on.
The Libyan Country Chief for the International Organization for Migration (IOM), a UN migration agency, Federico Soda, said that those responsible for the crime must be held accountable.
