Dabiri-Erewa Condemns Stabbing To Death Of Nigerian Teenager In London

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa has condemned the gruesome stabbing to death of another Nigerian teenager in London.

In a statement by her Special Assistant on Media, Abdur-Rahman Balogun in Abuja, Dabiri-Erewa said the killing of 17-year old Fola Orebiyi, was unacceptable to the government and people of Nigeria.
She said the killing of Orebiyi and other extra judicial killing of Nigeria citizens in UK was becoming worrisome.
She called for full investigation of the incident and urged the UK government to make sure that justice prevails.
While condoling the family of the deceased boy on the ugly incident, Dabiri-Erewa prayed unto God to give the bereaved family the fortitude to bear the painful loss.
She said that while Nigeria will not condone crime and criminal tendencies, it takes exception to the harassment, killing and execution of her nationals abroad unjustifiably.
A Nigerian student, Fola Orebiyi, was reportedly stabbed to death in a street clash on Sunday July 3, in Notting Hill, London, by a gang of youths.
He was reportedly involved in a fight on a nearby estate with a gang of youths, who chased him into the busy road where he was stabbed in the neck in front of shocked passersby and tourists.
Following the stabbing, he collapsed and bled to death and all efforts by the Police and paramedics to resuscitate him, proved abortive.
The deceased’s neighbour, Osman Sahal, told the police: “He was a nice boy and very considerate; none of us can understand how this could have happened.
“As far as I knew, he was never in trouble. I suppose we must now wait for the police to investigate.”
