Nigerians in Egypt have been arrested after staging an #EndSARS protest in front of the Nigerian High Commission office in Cairo on Sunday October 18.

Reacting to this Actress, Toyin Abraham, via her Twitter handle, called on Abike Dabiri-Erewa who is the chairman of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, to comment on the arrest of the protesting Nigerians.

Replying Toyin’s tweet, Dabiri-Erewa made it known that gatherings without permission are banned in Egypt as she clarified that it wasn’t the Nigerian commission that called in the police on the protesters which was the belief of most Nigerians. She further noted that the Nigerian Mission is working to effect the release of the arrested Nigerians.

Her tweet:

”Nigerian mission did not call Police. In Cairo, gatherings without permits are banned. In Egypt you can’t even travel from one part of the country without a permit to travel from the state you live . They have their own rules which they strictly enforce.

“The Egyptian police dispersed them, then traced them to a very far place. They didn’t arrest them at the mission. They came in a bus driven by an Egyptian. The driver has also been arrested. The mission will do all they can. Egypt is very very strict with their laws.”

  1. This is crazy of Egypt. Well what do you expect from a country being ruled by the type of person ruling it
    No freedom of speech…Africans

  2. Some people will pretend to care just so they can get a better seat to watch your struggle. Every helping hand is not always there to help them from unwanted arrest

  3. You can’t trust anybody these days…you think you have a good friend till you turn around and realize they have the knife 6 inches deep in your back.

  4. The chairperson of Nigeria in diaspora should work towards the release of those who were arrested in Egypt without further delay.

  5. Can you see what bad governance cause, if you do right things at the right time there would be no protest in Nigeria and other countries but you don’t have choice except to work towards how they are going to be freed.

  6. Whether it’s Nigeria commission in diaspora who called the Egyptian police or not, government should seek for their release without any further delay.

  7. Egyptian government did the rightful, because both the country are not practicing the same constitution. But Nigeria should immediate do the proper process to release the arresters.

  8. They are there and they are suppose to know that Covid-19 is real in some countries and they take their laws seriously.
