FG Gives Updates On Murdered Nigerian In Italy, Two others
The Federal Government has given the latest update on how a Nigerian living in diaspora, Ogorchukwu Alika, was murdered by a man in Italy.
The Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Wednesday in a video post on twitter, confirmed that the late Alika was allegedly beaten to death by an Italian man, using the clutches of the Nigerian man, who was physically-challenged.
Nexus News recalls that Alika was gruesomely murdered on 30 July by an Italian man in beach town, Italy.
Mrs Abike applauded the Nigerian community in Italy as well as the Italians, who have rallied around to support and raise funds for the late Alika’s family sequel to his murder.
“The case of Alika Ogochukwu that was gruesomely murdered in Italy is a very pathetic one,” Abike Dabiri-Erewa said in the video.
“Alika was a physically challenged person that was beaten up just like that and the guy who beat him up to death used the crutches he was using to walk.
“The culprit has been arrested by the Italian police. As I speak with you, the Nigerian embassy and the Italian authorities are holding a series of meetings and Alika has a lawyer who will be working with the Nigerian mission and ensure justice is served in this case.
“So far, the Nigerian mission has the full cooperation of the Italian authorities and they are also seeking that his wife should be compensated with a job so that she can continue to fend for the family and according to the Nigerian mission, they are working very well with the Italian authorities and we are optimistic that justice will be served and the wife will be adequately compensated at least with a job to keep her going.
“We want to also commend the Nigerians community in Italy and Italians who came out in large numbers to raise funds to support the wife and her family, so we really commend them for that and we will be on the case to ensure that Alika doesn’t die in vain.” she added.
Furthermore, Dabiri-Erewa gave an update on another gruesome murder of two young Nigerians, Tosin Amos Arowoshegbe and Chibueze Momoh, who were shot dead at a Canadian nightclub while working as guards.
According to the NiDCOM boss, the Canadian authorities have identified a suspect and were investigating the motive behind the awful event.
