Chief Executive Officer, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) Abike Dabiri-Erewa has described the death of a Nigerian based in Atlanta, Georgia, United States (U.S.) Mr. Dennis Abuda, as unfortunate, sad and callous.
In a statement by the Head of Media, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, NiDCOM condemned the death of Abuda, who was killed on Saturday by his abductors.
The commission called on the security operatives in Edo State to fish out the perpetrators of the heinous crime and made them to face the music to serve as a deterrent to others.
NiDCOM condoled with the family of the deceased, praying unto God to rest the soul of the departed and expose his killers as soon as possible.
It was reported that Abuda alongside his family members left Fugar in Etsako Central Local Government Area at the early hours of Saturday while travelling to Lagos to catch a flight back to U.S., when they were ambushed by the gunmen.
Abuda, whose body was discovered during a search operation led by the Commissioner of Police Philip Ogbadu on Wednesday, was allegedly shot by his abductors after he slumped while being forced into the forest.
He abducted relatives were lucky to be released on Tuesday by their abductors.
