By Prince Okafor

Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, NIDCOM, has petitioned Egyptair management, demanding justice over the circumstance surrounding the death of Remilekun Meshioye abroad.

This is coming on the heels of the airline’s non-responsiveness despite calls from family, and Nigerians.

It would be recalled that Ms. Remilekun died aboard Egypt Air enroute Cairo from Lagos last week.

A development which the family suspected the airline for being complicit in the death of their daughter, demanding that the airline returns her body to Nigeria at their own expense.

Mrs Olufunmilola Olaniyi-Alabi, the elder sister of Remilekun, based in Leeds, United Kingdom, who spoke on behalf of the family, accused Egypt Air of not informing them of Remilekun’s death but instead took her to a hospital in Cairo.

The family also requested for all her belongings and documents in the possession of Egypt Air, including the CCTV footage in the plane and at the airport.
