Chairman/CEO of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has urged home-based Nigerians indicted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation to voluntarily turn themselves in.
She warned that if the suspects refuse to do so, the Federal Government might have no option than to repatriate them to the United States to face the charges preferred against them.
“We acknowledge the fact that accusation does not mean guilt, and we hope that all the accused will be given a fair and speedy trial.
“We also ask those accused in Nigeria to voluntarily turn themselves in to American authorities to clear their names without which the Nigerian government should extradite them if relevant international treaties between the two governments are invoked,” she said.
“We advise and continuously resist any stereotype of Nigerians generally. The commission will continue to monitor the case closely,” Dabiri-Erewa added.
