Due to the incessant mysterious killings of blacks and Nigerian Students in Northern Cyprus Universities, the Federal government has warned parent against sending their children to the country especially after a third-year engineering student, Ibrahim Khaleel from Nigeria was allegedly murdered in an inexplicable circumstance in Northern Cyprus.
The chairman, Nigeria in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), ABIKE Dabiri-Erewa gave a warning to parents on Monday after he received a delegation led by Justice Amina Bello, mother of the Nigerian student who was killed in the country saying that the death of Khaleel,the third year student was one out of the many murder cases involving Nigerian students in the country,
“the death of Ibrahim Khaleel should be the tipping point to a stop in the killing of our children anywhere in the world, particularly Northern Cyprus,” she said.
“It is not only Ibrahim. Kennedy Dede 28, Augustine Ngok, Gabriel Sorewei, Osabanjo Owoyale, Augustine Wallace, Stanley Eteno, Hassan Babatunde, Temitayo Adigun, and Kubat Abraham are just a few of the ones that we even know.”
When asked why much has not been done about the killings, she said: “The problem is that most Nigerian parents do not know that Northern Cyprus is not recognized by any country in the world. it is not a UN-recognized country. It is only recognized by Turkey.
“that is why we have not been able to do much. who do you report to? thousands of Nigerian students are schooling there, and i tell you that hundreds have been killed. who do you take these cases to? And they are all killed in similar circumstances. the school just tells you they committed suicide and nothing happened”.
The Chairman also assured the mother of the deceased student that justice will be done for her son and others who have lost their life in the process, revealing that the case have been transferred to INTERPOL through the office of the attorney general of the federation.
“We have written to National Universities Commission (NUC). The key thing is to blacklist Northern Cyprus and to stop our children from going to that country to study”, she said.
