The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NiDCOM) has warned Nigerian students not to go to Northern Cyprus.
The chairman, Ms. Abike Dabiri-Erewa, issued the warning Thursday in Abuja during a ministerial briefing hosted by the Presidential Communications Team.
She said Northern Cyprus was not recognized by the UN and added that many students had been murdered there.
“There have been many problems in Northern Cyprus; we have youngsters coming to tell us please tell everyone not to go to north cyprus anymore.
“We did that some time ago and we were challenged about what rights we should tell people not to go to Northern Cyprus.
“I’ll say it again; if you have to go to Northern Cyprus, think twice; over the years, no less than 20 students have been murdered and nothing happened to the attackers.
“Students who were there before told us to start an awareness campaign; don’t go to these places; Northern Cyprus is only recognized by Turkey,” she said.
Dabiri-Erewa added that NiDCOM would continue to appeal Nigeria’s firm decision on places like Northern Cyprus.
