Nigerian pastor killed in China for visa violations


Chairman, Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa has demanded a thorough investigation into the death of a Nigerian pastor, Joseph Nwajueze in China.

She said the killing of the Anambra-born Nigerian pastor by Chinese security operatives must be thoroughly investigated and the culprits punished.

The deceased was living with his wife, Chinwe and four children in China before he was allegedly killed by security operatives while trying to escape arrest for alleged visa violations.

But Dabiri-Erewa in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday, by NIDCOM Head of Media, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, said there was no justifiable reason for the killing.

She equally condemned the stigmatization of Nigerians living in China, saying those who were found guilty of the country’s laws should be prosecuted.

While condoling with the family of Nwajueze, she reiterated her resolve to ensure that justice was done.

The statement said, “Abike Dabiri-Erewa, however, appealed to angry Nigerians in China to be patient and not take the law into their hands as the Federal Government will ensure that justice is done.”
