The Federal Government has declared that the lives of Nigerians living abroad were very precious to the Nigerian government.

The Federal Government also said that the ongoing harassment and intimidation of Nigerians outside the shores of the country was unacceptable and has decided to wade into cases of attacks by some countries against Nigerians living in such countries.

Chairman of the Nigerian Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, made the position of government known while briefing State House correspondents after meeting behind closed-doors with President Buhari, Abuja.

Dabiri-Erewa who also frowned at the dismissal of a Nigerian Professor teaching in a Ghanaian University, stated that only Nigerians who commit crime abroad should be made to face the wrath of the law, not innocent ones.
