The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, has condemned the attack on Nigeria’s Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike R. Amaechi while on a national assignment in Madrid, Spain.
Chibuike R. Amaechi who was attending an official event in Madrid was reportedly attacked by some Nigerians in the Spanish capital.
Dabiri-Erewa condemned the attack in a press statement she personally signed on Friday, 6 December, 2019.
She however commended the prompt intervention of the Nigerian Mission in Spain and the Spanish police for ensuring that the attacks did not spread.
“We applaud the prompt intervention of the Nigerian Mission in Spain as well as the Spanish police who ensured that the attacks did not escalate any further. Information indicates that the case is being handled by the Spanish Police.
“We appeal to Nigerians to be of good behavior wherever they find themselves because such incidents ultimately tarnish the image of the country within the host country, with multiplier negative effects on Nigerians living in that country, who are law abiding and well behaved,” Dabiri-Erewa said.
