Following the release of a list by the US authorities which indicted 80 persons, mostly Nigerians for various crimes including massive email fraud and money laundering, The Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), has warned against the stereotyping of all Nigerians.
According to a statement by the Chief Executive of the Commission, Mrs Dabiri-Erewa, the actions of a few Nigerians involved in criminal activities is not a representation of the majority.
It also said that an accusation does not necessarily mean guilt and that it expects that all the suspects will be given fair and speedy trial.
She however demanded that those accused should turn themselves in to the American authorities to clear their names.
A failure to do so according to the commission could result in the Nigerian government extraditing them if relevant international treaties between both governments are invoked.
