Nigerians protesting the alleged discrimination and violation of their human rights by immigration officials in Indonesia have stormed the country’s embassy and vandalized some properties belonging to the Nigerian government.
This recent development is coming six days after some portions of the residential building in the Nigerian embassy in Ghana was destroyed.
In a video clip obtained by SharaRepoters, some persons believed to be Nigerians were spotted carrying placards with various inscriptions.
The Nigerian protesters were heard chanting “Nigeria is not helping us in this country. We don’t have an Embassy. We no go ‘gree.”
It would be recalled that a 41-year-old Nigerian fell from a nine-storey building while he was trying to escape from Indonesian immigration officers.
His fall, however, sparked protest amongst Nigerians, leading to the destruction and vandalisation of the country’s properties in the embassy.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama has reacted to the to destruction of Nigerian properties in Indonesia via his Twitter handle.
The Minister condemned the act, noting that those involved in the destruction of the country’s properties would be caught and dealt with.
Onyeama tweeted, “Absolutely deplorable and disgraceful criminal behaviour by Nigerian hooligans who without justification attacked the Nigerian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia today.
“Every effort will be made to identify them and see they are severely punished. Totally unacceptable behaviour.”
