The Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa has demanded full autopsy and justice surrounding the circumstances that led to death of Itunu Babalola in Cote D’ivoire.

Hon Abike Dabiri-Erewa made the demand when she visited the Ambassador of Cote D’ivoire to Nigeria, Amb. Traore Kallilou in Abuja.

The NIDCOM Boss presented a protest letter to the Ambassador requesting a blow by blow account that culminated in the death of a Nigerian Girl, Itunu Babalola.

Hon Dabiri-Erewa urged Nigerians in the Diaspora to always be good Ambassadors of Nigeria by obeying the laws of their host countries as well as appeal to them to always use their real identity in whatever they do and also register their presence in Nigerian Missions in their places of residence.

The Federal government of Nigeria has demanded for full autopsy on the sudden and mysterious death of Itunnu Babalola, a Nigerian, sentenced to 20 years imprisonment in Côte Divoire for alleged human trafficking.

It could be recalled that Itunu’s house in Abidjan Cote D’ivoire was burgled and in her bid to get justice took the case to the police for proper investigation.

While filling the case, she used Miss Becky Paul instead of her real name Itunu Babalola to write her statement and the case unfortunately turned against her as she was later accused of Human Trafficking.

However, the Nigerian Embassy in Cote D’ivoire is alive on the issue and has issued a statement as attached.
