Nigerian in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM) has said that none of those who claimed to have been unjustly imprisoned in Togo has officially contacted the agency.


However, the agency explained that it has reached out to the Nigerian embassy in the Francophone nation to get details.


Following the allegations of maltreatment of Nigerians trying to transit through Togolese airport on social media, Director of Media, Public Relations and Protocols Unit, NIDCOM, Abuja, Abdur-Rahman Balogun sez that the commission cannot be reacting to all sorts of “things on the social media” without the victims filing formal complaints.


Balogun added that if truly, Nigerians travelling through Togo were imprisoned unjustifiably; they are at best travellers and not Diasporans, which falls under their mandate.
