Erewa reiterated the President’s calls to Nigerians both home and abroad to avoid crimes like drug peddling which attracts stiff penalties like death.

She said: “The barbaric behaviour of the perpetrators is not only unacceptable, but also calls for urgent attention by diplomatic authorities in Nigeria and South Africa.”

She however, urged the South African government to ensure that justice prevails by carrying out investigation and ensure the culprits are made to face the law.

Erewa also enjoins Nigerians in diaspora to always respect the laws of their host countries and be good ambassadors of Nigeria.
