Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa, has called upon EgyptAir management to provide transparency and justice concerning the tragic passing of a Nigerian passenger, Remilekun Toyosi Meshioye, on 4th September, 2023.
According to the family, since Remilekun’s passing during the flight from Lagos to Cairo, the EgyptAir management had neither informed the family nor responded to NIDCOM’s inquiries.
“Please we need to know what exactly happened to Remilekun and how to get her corpse back to Nigeria for a peaceful burial as well as all her belongings in the custody of the airline,” the statement from NIDCOM said.
Remilekun, aged 41, was on her way to London for studies when she reportedly fell ill during the flight from Lagos to Cairo and was declared deceased upon arrival.
In an official statement by NIDCOM’s Head of Media and Public Relations, Abdur-Rahman Balogun, a letter was delivered by Dabiri-Erewa to the General Manager of the airline in Abuja, Majdi Al Aridi, expressing profound sadness over the sudden and painful loss of Remilekun.
