The NiDCOM Boss added that the Nigerian envoy had given all necessary preliminary assistance, and pledged that the Nigerian Government will work with the family on the next steps to take on the issue of alleged negligence by the institution.
Mrs Agboluaje narrated how she had been in constant communication with her son till 11pm on the day when he had complained of the non-functional heater in his room and requested that it be fixed, but got no response from the receptionist on duty.
