From the Westminster Magistrate Court, London, has come an explanation for the damage caused embassy official cars by an angry Nigerian, Jeffrey Apkovweta Ewohime, who allegedly went berserk, Monday in London attacking and damaging official cars in front of the Nigerian High Commission.
A lawyer and a Nigerian resident in the United Kingdom, Samson Okunola, explained that Ewohime was provoked into his destructive rage because of the inefficiency of the High commission, which has been roundly criticised by Nigerians in that country.
Curiously, Ewohime was taken to the magistrate court for another offence unrelated to the damage he did to the cars.
Everyday Nigeria reports that Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Chairman/CEO, Nigerians In Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), was quick to issue a statement that 32-year old Nigerian, Jeffrey Apkovweta Ewohime, had approached the Embassy to collect his passport which expired since Nov 2017 at about 2 p.m and was told collection of passports closes at 1pm.
According to her, he insisted on collecting his passport, and was told to bring his collection slip which he could not produce.
According to reports from the Embassy, it would of course be wrong to hand over his passport to him , without his collection slip.
She confirmed that several properties of the Nigerian embassy in London were damaged by the man and described it as despicable and condemnable.
In the statement by her media aide, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, she added that such an attitude was unpatriotic, and an unconscionable act of indiscipline
