Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has condemned the alleged assault of a Nigerian, Tayo Faniran, by the South African Police on Thursday.
In a statement in Abuja on Friday, the Chairman of NIDCOM, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, described the alleged attack as frightening and uncalled for.
“Their almost physical attack on him is most unprofessional, ” Dabiri-Erewa added in the statement issued by the Head of Media of the commission, Mr Abdur-Rahman Balogun.
“Faniran is, however, not in police net and the commission will reach him for a one-on-one interaction,’’ she said.
Dabiri-Erewa noted that some South African policemen were currently on trial for alleged maltreatment of some Nigerians in South Africa.
