NiDCom Chairperson, Abike Dabiri-Erewa Reacts After Nigerian #EndSARS Protesters Were Arrested In Egypt
The Chairperson of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCom), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has addressed the arrest of some Nigerians who staged an #EndSARS protest in Egypt.
Her reaction comes after popular actress, Toyin Abraham drew her attention to the fact that some Nigerians who were protesting have been arrested.
In her reaction, she said;
”Nigerian mission did not call Police. In Cairo, gatherings without permits are banned. In Egypt you can’t even travel from one part of the country without a permit to travel from the state you live . They have their own rules which they strictly enforce.
The Egyptian police dispersed them, then traced them to a very far place. They didn’t arrest them at the mission. They came in a bus driven by an Egyptian. The driver has also been arrested. The mission will do all they can. Egypt is very very strict with their laws.”
