The Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa has assured Nigerians that with efforts being put in place, Omah Lay and Tems will be out of Uganda Prison soon.
The Nigerian Artistes were arrested on the 13th of December, 2020 by the Uganda Police for performing at an event in the country despite Covid-19 restrictions.
The NIDCOM chairman has reached out to the public via her Twitter account, after the cry of many Nigerians for the release of the artistes and Muyiwa Awoniyi who was also with them during the concert.
Some of her responses on Twitter read:
“It has just been brought to our attention. We are doing everything possible to get it all sorted #FreeOmahLay”
“We must ensure we get them back home, safe and sound and fast #FreeOmahLay #FreeTems”
“Everything is being done to get them freed”
She also replied Peter Okeye of defunct P-square, after tagging her in his tweet and also putting a call through, for the release of the artistes.
“Thanks Peter. The Minister Geoffrey Onyeama has also been on the matter. Our mission in Uganda has also taken it up and I just had a conversation with the Lawyer representing them “She tweeted.
“#FreeOmahLay #FreeTems . The Nigerian mission in Uganda is doing everything to get them freed. Minister GeoffreyOnyeama has also been on the matter. @nidcom_gov is also in touch with their Lawyers.” Dabiri-Erewa tweeted.
