Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has condemned in strong terms the unfortunate death of Mr. Dennis Abuda who was killed on Saturday by his abductors.

Abuda, a Nigerian diasporan based in Atlanta- Georgia was abducted along Benin bypass by unknown gunmen alongside other family members while traveling to Lagos to catch a flight back to US.

A statement by the Head of Media, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, describes the incident as very unfortunate, sad and callous.

The Commission called on security operatives in Edo state to fish out the perpetrators of the heinous crime and make them face the music so as to serve as a deterrent to others.

NIDCOM condoled with the family of the deceased and prayed unto God to rest the soul of the departed and expose the killers of Abuda as soon as possible.

It is reported that Mr. Abuda alongside his family members left Fugar in Etsako Central Local Government Area at the early hours of Saturday and were ambushed by the gunmen.

Abuda whose corpse was discovered during a search operation led by the Commissioner of Police Philip Ogbadu on Wednesday was allegedly shot by his abductors after he slumped while being forced into the forest.

Abuda was abducted alongside his relatives who were lucky and were released on Tuesday by their abductors.
