The Chairman of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has called on South Africa to investigate the alleged murder of one Elizabeth Ndubuisi-Chukwu in the country.
Concise News understands that, until her death, Ndubuisi-Chukwu was the Deputy Director-General of Chartered Insurance Institute of Nigeria in South Africa.
It was learned that she was in Johannesburg to attend the Conference of the African Insurance Organisation (AIO).
She was reportedly found dead in her room at Emperor’s Palace Casino Hotel and Convention Centre on 13 June.
“We must know what happened If it means getting a private investigator we will, we should not be pushed to the edge We have reached a tipping point,” she said.
“Someone goes for a conference? And murdered? For the sake of both countries , and for closure for the families we must know what happened and we will.”
She further said she had faith in the assurances given by the Consular General adding that the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Nigeria and South Africa set up an early warning signal sometime ago.
“It is definitely not working and it has to be reviewed,” she said.
“Eight Policemen in South Africa are currently on trial for their involvement in killings of Nigerians and our mission monitoring the cases.
“Mrs Ndubuisi must not die in vain. It’s one death too many and we have demanded full co operation from South Africa and we expect nothing less.”
