Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, the Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission on Thursday, announced the latest development on her Twitter handle.
“Further to the murder of a Nigerian, Pius Abiaziem, on 23/08/19, in SA @DIRCO_ZA four members of the South African police service have been arrested and will be charged to court immediately,” Abike said.
