Chairman/CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Hon. (Dr) Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has commiserated with families of two Nigerians brutally murdered in a nite club in Canada.
In a condolence message by the Head of Media and Public Relations of the Commission, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, Dabiri Erewa described the deaths of Chibueze Momah, 22, and Tosin Awaroshegbe, 25, as sad and disheartening.
The two Nigerian men were reportedly shot dead on Saturday by gunmen at the ATL Lounge in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada.
According to friends of the deceased, “Eze and Tosin were both diligent workers who served as security guards for many lounges in Vaughan. They
were loved and cherished by many in the community. Their story was only getting started as they had both recently graduated.
While nothing that the police authorities in Canada have began to look into circumstances surrounding the the callous deaths of the two young Nigerians, with the hope of bringing the culprits to book, Dabiri expressed her deepest condolences with their respective families and friends. She is optimistic of justice for the victims.
Eze was set to make his way into the tech industry and Tosin our beloved Engineer, following their academic pursuits in Canada. Unfortunately, their time was cut short.
“May their souls rest in perfect peace. Aamin”, NIDCOM added.
