Dabiri-Erewa said that reports had it that the late Pastor was doing his legitimate business in China and such, there was no reason for his unjustifiable killing.

She equally condemned the stigmatization of Nigerians living in China, saying those who were found guilty of the country’s law should be prosecuted.

While condoling the family of the diseased Pastor, she reiterated her resolve to ensure justice is done by fishing out those who were responsible for his death.

It was learnt that Pastor Joseph Nwajueze was chased to his death by Chinese security operatives over alleged immigration formalities.

Sources said the Chinese security personnel, in an attempt to capturing the fleeing Nigerian pastor, used a security gadget that illuminates light on him, in order to demobilse him.

It was gathered that the security gadget made the pastor numb, leading to his fall, which eventually led to his death.

Hon. Abike Dabiri-Erewa however appealed to angry Nigerians in China to be patient and not take the law into their hands as the Federal government will ensure that justice is done.
