Anike Dabiri Reacts As Kenyan Govt Ordered Shoot At Sight On Protesters

The Chairman/CEO of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission has announced that the Kenyan government has issued a shoot-on-sight order due to ongoing protests in the country.

She made this known in a post on X, while disclosing that Nigerian youths in Kenya have been advised to exercise caution and stay safe. She mentioned that there have been no Nigerian casualties so far and expressed hope that this remains the case.

This statement was in response to Kemi Olunloyo’s post about the unrest in Nairobi, which resulted in deaths and widespread chaos due to a tax-related protest.

Olunloyo noted that the Nigerian embassy had not issued warnings similar to those from the U.S. State Department for its citizens, and expressed concern about the safety of Nigerians in Kenya.

However, while responding to her claims, Abike Dabiri assured that the Nigerian Embassy in Kenya has communicated with various communities, especially students, to provide appropriate guidance.

“The Embassy has reached out to the various communities, particularly the students and advised them appropriately. The Kenyan government has ordered a shoot at sight and our youths in Kenya in particular have been advised to be cautious and careful. No Nigerian casualty at the moment and we pray for none,” she wrote.
