The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, has frowned at the attack on Nigerian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia describing as “disgraceful.” It is an attack too many. The Indonesia attack came barely a week after some persons vandalised a building on the premises of the Nigerian High Commission in Accra, Ghana.
Meanwhile, the perpetrators of the Jakarta incident were believed to e citizens of Nigeria who were protesting the alleged discriminatory practices and infringement on their fundamental human rights by Indonesian immigration officials, video clips that surfaced online suggested. “Nigeria is not helping us in this country. We don’t have an Embassy. We no go ‘gree, We no go ‘gree” they chanted I pidgin English.
Some of the protesters were seen vandalising a white bus in the premises of the Embassy building while others broke the windows and doors of the building.
Onyeama reacted in a tweet saying that “Absolutely deplorable and disgraceful criminal behaviour by Nigerian hooligans who without justification attacked the Nigerian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia today.” The minister vowed in a tweet on Thursday said efforts were being made to bring the suspects to book.
