Nigeria Recalls Ambassador To Indonesian After Assault On Her Diplomat

The Federal Government has recalled Nigeria’s Ambassador to Indonesia, Usman Ogar, following the assault and harassment a Nigerian diplomat suffered in the hands of immigration officials in the Asian country.


Within Nigeria had reported that the Federal Government had summoned the Indonesian Ambassador to Nigeria over the assault video which went viral over the weekend.

In the viral video, the victim, whose name was not mentioned, was being manhandled and arrested by at least three Indonesian immigration officials in front of his official quarters in the Asian country.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, who announced Ogar’s recall for consultations at a press briefing in Abuja, on Tuesday, also stated that the government would review the bilateral relations between Nigeria and the Asian country.

Onyeama said when the ministry saw the video of the diplomat who was being restrained by Indonesian immigration officers in a moving car on social media, it immediately contacted the ambassador in Indonesia, who gave a verbal account of what transpired.

The minister added that the envoy confirmed that the video was indeed of a Nigerian diplomat in Indonesia, noting that the illegal action took place during a round-up by Indonesian immigration officials searching for irregular migrants in the country.

He said, “What we have decided to do is to recall for consultations immediately our Nigerian ambassador in Jakarta, in Indonesia, and we will have full consultations at the highest level and decide what next step to take, including a review, of course, of our relations with Indonesia.”

Onyeama stressed that the action of the immigration officers was a clear breach of the Vienna Convention, adding that it was “an act of egregious international delinquency.”

“The Nigerian government also requested that the Indonesian government take severe and appropriate sanction against the immigration officials that were involved in the act of brazen criminality,” he added.

  1. That's the language our corrupt Politicians understand

  2. Right step in the right direction. Aside violating the international laws governing diplomacy.,Indonesia went too far in abusing the sanctity and dignity of his human right. The video reminded me of George Floyd's ordeal. An outright brutality on another human whose only sin is having a different skin colour. Shame on all the white supremacists. In my people's voice "even ordinary Indonesia" that our importers are controlling an appreciable percentage of their economy? It is well o

  3. Thank God for social media.

  4. Every country is insulting Nigeria because Nigeria's leaders have insulted Nigeria

    1. Are Nigerian leaders also the ones committing crimes in different countries?

  5. So Indonesia too has joined the racist gang? Ordinary Indonesia oo. Nigeria has suffered sha. What an effontery. What is his crime that he had to be rough handled like a thief?

  6. Hmmm, pls what did the man do to be arrested like this. This is how we all cried out concerning Nigerians in China that were not allowed back in their hotels during covid. We later learned that they refused to self isolate and obey the law.

    As a diplomat there's a way to conduct yourself, couldn't he even talk why was he shouting like a ram about to be slaughtered.

    Our leaders take their bad unruly attitude abroad and forget that no be naija dem dey.

    I can bet that this story will die down after his offence is told.

  7. The treatment they put that man through was downright evil. The right thing to do would be to part ways with that nation and forget about trade with them.

    When we write about the need for Nigerians to fully research these countries they love to run to, they won't listen. If this can happen to a diplomat who should hold immunity imagine an ordinary person.

    Na only Africans love put anybody and anyplace outside of Africa on pedestal.

  8. Dem no beat am well. The time other Nigerians cried to his Embassy last year about such treatment, he ignored them. God punish him.
