The Chairman/Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM), Mrs. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has expressed optimism that justice will be served for the two Nigerians killed at the weekend in Canada.

Chibueze Momah (22) and Tosin Awaroshegbe (25) were allegedly shot dead on Saturday by gunmen at the ATL Lounge in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada.

In a condolence message by the Head of Media and Public Relations of the commission, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, Mrs. Dabiri-Erewa said: “The police authorities in Canada have begun to look into circumstances surrounding the callous deaths of the two young Nigerians, with the hope of bringing the culprits to book. She is optimistic of justice for the victims.”

The NiDCOM boss also commiserated with the families of the slain Nigerians, expressing her deepest condolences with their families and friends.

Friends of the deceased said: “Eze and Tosin were both diligent workers who served as security guards for many lounges in Vaughan. They were loved and cherished by many in the community. Their story was only getting started as they had both recently graduated.

“Eze was set to make his way into the tech industry and Tosin our beloved Engineer. Unfortunately, their time was cut short.”
