The Nigerian man who destroyed five cars belonging to the Nigerian High Commission in the United Kingdom yesterday June 17th has now been identified as Jeffery Apkovweta Ewohime.
According to reports, the 32-year-old had arrived late at the Embassy for his appointment and was turned back. Frustrated that he could not achieve his aim, Ewohime took his frustration out on the cars parked outside the embassy. He destroyed five of them using iron rods and stones.
Ewohime whose passport has been seized in time past by Belgian Embassy where he caused trouble, has been arrested by the police in London.
Narrating what happened, the Comptroller General of Immigration Service, Muhammed Babandede, in a statement released last night, said
“Ewohime arrived late and was told by the Security that the Mission has closed for the day. He went about destroying Nigeria’s diplomatic vehicles worth hundreds of thousands of taxpayers money. The passport in question has been issued since 6th of June 2019. He did not leave any self-addressed envelope for delivery.”
