NIDO writes Buhari, seeks justice for murdered US-based Nigerian


The Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation Americas has written to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), seeking justice for one of its members recently murdered by kidnappers back home.

The victim, Prince Dennis Abuda, was abducted on the Auchi-Benin road in Edo on Jan. 30, while returning to the US after visiting his home town of Fugar.

Four days later, the police found his decomposing body with bullet wounds on the Lagos-bound bypass in Benin after ransom was paid on him.

The kidnappers reportedly shot him dead after he slumped while being forced into the forest.

Nothing has been heard of the case since Feb. 5, when the police said they arrested some suspects assisting them in their investigation.

In the letter dated Feb. 11, NIDOA appealed to the president to ensure that the perpetrators of the dastardly act were brought to justice to deter others.
