Metro Presidency Reacts to Attack on Nigerians in India



The Presidency has reacted to the recent attacks on Nigerians in India.

Nigerians living in India have recently come under severe attack from locals, with many injured and embarrassed for no reason.

Reacting, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, says Nigerians in India should remain calm and watch their surroundings.

In a statement on Wednesday, she condemned the attack, saying it was deplorable, unwarranted and uncalled for.

"I have also spoken with Mr. Charles Kennedy, President of the Students' Association in Greater Noida where the attacks occurred. He said though a Kenyan girl who was working alone in the early hours of today was attacked, more police patrol vehicles have been deployed to all areas.”

"He confirmed that the situation is calm and is pleased with the prompt actions of the Nigerian Chargé d'affaires in India and the Indian government so far," she said.

She thanked the Indian government for the steps taken so far to curtail the attacks.
