The Chairman of Nigerians in the Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Saturday, paid a condolence visit to the mother of Gbolade Ejemai, the Nigerian medical doctor who was killed in Ukraine, on August 9, 2019.
The final year medical student of Kharkov International Medical University was allegedly murdered by a 36-year-old Ukrainian and mother of two, Victoria Popvrako.
During the visit to the family in Egbeda, Lagos state, Dabiri-Erewa assured the bereaved that their son will not die in vain. “We have written to the Ukrainian police and their foreign affairs ministry to conduct a thorough investigation into the matter.
If they have not been investigating (such gruesome killing of Nigerians) before, with this one, they will begin to investigate. This is a government that believes every Nigerian matter, and we want to assure you that your son will get justice even in death,” she said.
Ejemai was honoring an invitation to Popvrako’s house to iron things out, where he was said to have been stabbed twice in the stomach, and then hit with a hammer on the head, by her dad. He later died at the hospital.
30-year-old Ejemai was dating one Victoria Luganska, also a Ukrainian national, and Popvrako is a scorned ex. He informed Victoria of his visit to sort things out with Popvrako once and for all, not knowing that she planned to kill him
