Dabiri condemns destruction of Vehicles at the Nigerian embassy in London


Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO, Nigerians In Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) 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, 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 Embasy in London on Monday,

He 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. ”

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

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

  1. I agreed with the comment that Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has described about the attitude of a 32-year old Nigerian, Jeffrey Apkovweta Ewohime who destroyed several properties of the Nigerian embassy in London recently. But at the same time I blame Nigerian Embassy for making Nigerian citizen to be depressed and frustrated when it becomes rendering their services.

    I am one of the victim of this type. I applied for change of data since December 2018, in January 2019 Nigerian Embassy in London sent all my document, including several of other people to Abuja, Nigeria. As they claim that it can only be done in Nigeria and up till now no result after following all the necessary requirement.
    And I have taken time off work severally to make enquiry to what is happening with my passport, each time I got there I had come back with frustration and disappointment by them telling me that they have sent my document to Abuja and there is nothing else they can do about it anymore, that I need to pursue it myself.
    This kind of system is ridiculous. How can I be chasing me passport in Nigeria while I am living in London? Right now I am frustrated, angry, depressed and losing it. I have contacted so many people in Nigeria to help me, but still nothing come out of it. I am stuck, I cannot travel anywhere, this issue has forced me to cancelled so many holiday I planned to take.

    Now tell me with all this frustration and depression, will I not do worse than what that man did? if I now carry gun and enter Nigerian embassy and start shooting all the staff there in revenge to what they have put me through, I think I should not be blame. Because I don’t understand how adding additional name to my passport should take one year to process.

    Could Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa or anybody on top the position please contact me on my email below if you are reading this comment before I will lose it as they have push me to the wall now and I don’t know what else to do. I need my passport, I have paid for the service and I think I deserve to receive what I have paid for.
    Thank you.
