Mr. Martins Adedeji Oni has been sacked from his role as a security officer at the Nigerian Embassy in Germany.

He was sacked after he was caught in a viral video demanding for sex before renewing passport for female applicant.

Recall that in November, a viral video surfaced on social media showing the officer in a hotel room half-naked arguing with an unknown person who accused him of demanding sex from females who applied for passport renewals.

Nigerian Ambassador to Germany, Yusuf Tuggar in reaction to the viral video had said that the embassy would investigate the matter.

Releasing an update on their Twitter handle on Tuesday, the Embassy announced that the probe committee found Mr Oni guilty of the allegations.

 Mr Oni was, therefore, sacked with immediate effect.

The statement said: “The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has terminated with immediate effect the contract of Mr Martins Adedeji Oni, a security officer at the mission. His dismissal follows an investigation into allegations of corruption and sexual misconduct.

“Mr Oni was suspended from duty on 17 November after reports emerged that he had curried sexual favours in return for help with the renewal of a passport.

“The Embassy immediately established an Investigation Committee to examine the allegations and any related issues, and to make recommendations for action.

“The Committee interviewed Mr Oni and other witnesses as part of a thorough examination of these very serious charges. It concluded that Mr Oni was culpable and in violation of all the relevant codes.

“As a result, Mr. Martins Adedeji Oni contract with the Embassy as a Local Staff has been terminated.

 

“The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria wishes to further stress its zero-tolerance policy towards all abuses of office, and especially of sexual misconduct.

“The Embassy is grateful for the help of the public in tackling such abuses.

“As public servants, we pledge to follow all due process as part of our continuing commitment to deliver the highest ethical & professional standards in all our operations, also at Consular & Immigration.”
