Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has asked the Indian authorities to account for the death of a Nigerian killed in the Asian country.
On Thursday, video clips had surfaced on social media of an exhausted Nigerian man being seized by the shirt by an Indian man as others surrounded the duo in what appeared to be a scene of violence.
The Nigerian, a businessman identified as Sunny Mike, was accused of theft and a mob action ensued, leading to his death.
Reacting to one of the video clips, Abike Dabiri, chairman of NIDCOM, said the commission has reached out to its mission in Delhi and requested a full investigation on the incident.
In a statement issued via its Twitter handle, the commission said: “Our attention has been drawn to the above incident of a Nigerian brutally beaten up in Delhi, India.
“We call on Nigeria Community in India to be calm as the Mission is aware.
On her part, Dabiri wrote: “The Nigerian mission in India has reported to the police and has demanded a full investigation on this incident which happened two days ago. We will keep on it and update. Sad!.”
