The Chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has warned parents against sending their children to schools in Northern Cyprus.
Mrs Dabiri-Erewa stated this on Monday when she received a delegation at her office, led by Justice Amina Bello, mother of a Nigerian student, Ibrahim Khaleel, who was allegedly killed in that country.
She said that country is not recognized by the United Nations, except the Republic of Turkey, adding that Nigeria has no diplomatic ties with that country.
The NIDCOM Chairman, however, stated that the country should be blacklisted given the preponderance of Nigerian students who have died mysteriously in it without any prosecution or compensation whatsoever.
She emphasized the time had come for Nigeria to blacklist the Universities in Northern Cyprus and advised students from seeking any form of admission there, as it portends danger to their lives and future.
