(News Investigators)/ The Nigerian government on Monday condemned in strong terms what it described as the unfortunate murder of Elizabeth Ndubuisi-Chukwu, in South Africa.
Mrs. Ndubuisi-Chukwu was found dead in her room at Emperor’s Palace Casino, Hotel and Convention Centre, Johannesburg on June 13.
The late Mrs. Ndubuisi-Chukwwu was a Deputy Director General of Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria. She was in South Africa to attend the Conference of the African Insurance Organization (AIO).
Chairperson of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, in a statement described the incident as “one death too many and cannot be swept under the carpet.”
Mrs. Dabiri-Erewa urged the South African Authorities to rise up to their responsibilities and ensure that those behind the dastardly act are brought to book.
The NIDCOM Chairman, however, said she is confident of the determination of the Nigerian High Commission in Pretoria and the Consulate General in Johannesburg to resolve the situation.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Dabiri-Erewa has extended her heartfelt condolences to the family of the deceased, on behalf of the government and the good people of Nigeria.
The NIDCOM boss assured that as directed by President Muhammadu Buhari no Nigerian anywhere in the world would be treated with levity and unjustly.
Mrs Elizabeth Ndubuisi-Chukwu died on June 13 at Kempton Park Gauteng Province, South Africa.
