The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, has warned Nigerian parents against sending their children to universities in Northern Cyprus, over the incessant and mysterious killing of Nigerians.
Chairman/CEO of the Commission, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, who gave the warning on Monday, said it was too risky to send children to the schools in Northern Cyprus, as hundreds of Nigerian students have been killed there mysteriously without any conclusive investigations carried out.
Dabiri-Erewa said this when she received in her office, a delegation led by Justice Amina Bello, mother of a Nigerian student, Ibrahim Khaleel, who was allegedly killed in inexplicable circumstances in that country.
She stressed that the death of Khaleel, a third-year engineering student, brought to a tipping point the incessant killing of nigerian students in Northern Cyprus under baffling circumstances.
The NIDCOM boss, who read out 15 names of Nigerians from a list of more than 100 who were killed in Northern Cyprus, said it is difficult to employ international diplomacy in investigation, as the country is only recognised by Turkey.
