FG asks India to account for Nigerian ‘beaten to death’






The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has asked the Indian authorities to account for the death of one of its citizens 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.

It was gathered that the Nigerian, a businessman who is simply identified as Sunny Mike, was accused of theft. A mob action was reported to have 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.


“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!,” Dabiri wrote.
