The Federal Government has condemned the attack on the Nigerian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia by protesting Nigerian citizens, describing the act as disgraceful and criminal.

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

In a video circulating online, the placard-carrying protesters were heard chanting, “Nigeria is not helping us in this country. We don’t have an Embassy. We no go ‘gree.”

Some of them were seen vandalising a white bus on the premises of the Embassy building while others broke the windows and doors of the building.

The angry mob also brought down the Nigerian flag and shred it after dragging it for some minutes.

Reacting on his Twitter page, Nigeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, condemned the Thursday attack, and described it as a “disgraceful criminal behaviour by Nigerian hooligans.”

Onyeama vowed that those involved in the destruction of the country’s properties would be caught and dealt with. He tweeted;

“Absolutely deplorable and disgraceful criminal behaviour by Nigerian hooligans who without justification attacked the Nigerian Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia today.

“Every effort will be made to identify them and see they are severely punished. Totally unacceptable behaviour.”

The attack is caming barely a week after some persons vandalised a building on the premises of the Nigerian High Commission in Accra, Ghana.
