Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Director/President Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) on Saturday communicated fulfillment over the equity distributed to the cop that killed a Nigerian in South Africa.

In an announcement by the Head of Media and Advertising Unit of the Commission, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, in Abuja, she said:"We are happy that equity has been finished".

"We have constantly expressed that there must be ramifications for activities. We are happy that this case at long last reached a conclusion and South Africa has exhibited the political will to manage xenophobia," she said.

The NIDCOM manager entreated Nigerians in South Africa to cling to President Muhammadu Buhari's recommendation to be great diplomats of Nigeria any place they get themselves.

Dabiri-Erewa included that Nigeria and South Africa would move in the direction of a unified Africa with the end goal of bringing to book all culprits of brutality independent of their nationality, NAN reports

She recognized the Nigerian Strategic Johannesburg for finishing the case and different cases including Nigerians.

Talking in a similar vein, the Emissary General of Nigeria in South Africa, Mr Godwin Adama, said that he was glad that the case reached a conclusion on Friday with judgment articulated on the blameworthy cop.

Adama unveiled that the second instance of 8 cops being pursued for the homicide of a Nigerian, Ibrahim Badmus, was deferred until April 2020 for definite decision because of some specialized issues.

He said the judgment of Friday has raised the soul and spirit of Nigerians in South Africa.

NAN reports that the case began since 2018 when a Nigerian, Ebuka Okoli, who was slaughtered by a South Africa cop and was seen as liable of all the four-check charge.

There is no capital punishment in South Africa laws, with the exception of life sentence or long sentence for homicide.
