 Alleged Discrimination: Nigerians Attack Nigerian Embassy In Indonesia

Some Nigerians in Indonesia has attacked the Nigerian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia over alleged discrimination and infringement of their rights by Indonesian immigration officials.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, confirmed the attack in a tweet on his official handle, saying there is no justification for the attack.

While lamenting the incidence, he said efforts are being made to identify those behind the “disgraceful” incident on Thursday, June 25, 2020, and punish them accordingly.

In videos trending online, some Nigerians were seen attacking the Embassy and chanting, “Nigeria is not helping us in this Country. We don’t have an Embassy. We no go ‘gree”; while some were seen destroying a bus on the Embassy’s premises with others vandalising windows and doors of the building.

The protesters equally brought down the Nigerian flag and tore it to shreds.
