in China, Joseph Ogenna Nwajueze from the Chinese authorities.
Dabiri-Erewa in a statement issued in Abuja by the NIDCOM Head of Media, Abdur-Rahman Balogun,
stated that the death of the Nigerian Pastor based in China was condemnable.
Dabiri-Erewa said that reports had it that the late Pastor was doing his legitimate business in
China and as such; there was no reason for his unjustifiable killing.
She equally condemned the stigmatization of Nigerians living in China, saying those who were
found guilty of the country’s law should be prosecuted.
While condoling the family of the deceased Pastor, she reiterated her resolve to ensure justice
is done by fishing out those who were responsible for his death.
It was learnt that Pastor Joseph Nwajueze was chased to his death by Chinese security operatives
over alleged immigration formalities.
Sources said the Chinese security personnel, in an attempt to capturing the fleeing Nigerian pastor,
used a security gadget that illuminates light on him, in order to demobilse him.
It was also gathered that the security gadget made the pastor numb, leading to his fall, which
eventually led to his death.
Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa however appealed to angry Nigerians in China to be patient and not take
the law into their hands as the Federal government will ensure that justice is done
