Kayode, while reacting on his Facebook page to a statement by Honourable Abikc Dabiri-Etewa, Chairman CEO, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, advised on what to do.

The Chairman had earlier addressed the arrest of 80 persons, mainly Nigerians in various pans of the US being accused in separate FBI cases of massive email fraud and money laundering.

Part of the statement read: “We acknowledge the fact that accusation does not mean guilt and we hope that all the accused will be given fair and speedy trial.

“We also ask those accused in Nigeria to voluntarily turn themselves in to American authorities to clear their names without which the Nigerian govemmcnt should cxtraditc them if relevant international treaties between the two govcmments are invoked.

Regard to the statement, Kayode advised the commission to desist from making the accused appear guilty, said that the government should request for evidence relating to the crime against them and make sure they are given fair trial.

In his words: “When a foreign Government claims that 80 of your citizens have committed crimes the first thing that you are meant to do as a Goveenment is to ask for the evidence against them and demand that they are given a fair trial.

“You do not assume that they are guilty and you do not threaten to extradict them.”

The FBI list has triggered reactions from Nigerians on social media since the release on Thursday.
