  • The protesters were discovered to be Nigerian citizens.
  • The protest is against alleged discriminatory acts by the Indonesian immigration officials.

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.


Video clips that surfaced online showed some placard-carrying protesters chanting, “Nigeria is not helping us in this country. We don’t have an Embassy. We no go ‘gree.”

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.
