A 32-year old Nigerian identified as Jeffery Ewohime on Monday destroyed several vehicles at the Nigerian high commission in London.
Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Chairman, Nigerians In the Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), condemned the attitude in a statement by her media aide, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, describing it as unpatriotic and an act of indiscipline.
Narrating the incident, She said:
“He had approached the high commission to collect his passport which expired since November 2017 at about 2 p.m. and was told collection of passports would close at 1 p.m.
“He then insisted on collecting his passport, and was told to bring his collection slip which he could not produce.”
According to the high commission, it would, of course, be wrong to hand over his passport to him without his collection slip.
Dabiri-Erewa then said that Emohime thereafter left, agitated and returned from a nearby hotel to destroy about seven cars, five belonging to the mission, and two to visitors who parked nearby.
Quoting her in the statement, she said:
“His attempt to destroy the High Commissioner’s car failed as it is bulletproof.
“I am told that he had been arrested by the police.
“He destroyed seven brand new cars, except the Ambassador’s car which is bulletproof. “
“This is a despicable act, which must be condemned by all. Of course, the law must take its course.”
