The Nigerian Embassy in the Indonesian capital city of Jakarta has been vandalized. This is coming barely a week after some persons demolished a building of the Nigerian High Commission in Accra, Ghana.
Sources gathered that the perpetrators were citizens of Nigeria who were protesting the alleged discriminatory practices and infringement on their fundamental human rights by Indonesian immigration officials.
Some were seen vandalising a white bus on the premises of the Embassy building while others broke the windows and doors of the building.
The protesters also brought down the Nigerian flag, defaced and shredded it to pieces.
Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, condemned the Thursday attack, describing it as “disgraceful” in a tweet.
He said efforts were being made to bring the suspects to book.
