Indonesia attacks, arrests Nigerian diplomat, FG summons ambassador

Foreign minister Geoffrey Onyeama has summoned the Indonesian ambassador to Nigeria over an assault on a Nigerian diplomatic agent in Jakarta.

Mr Onyeama, in a statement in Abuja, said the “unfortunate incident” was against international law and the Vienna Conventions governing diplomatic and consular relations between states.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is in receipt of a report and has seen a video in circulation regarding an unacceptable incident in Jakarta, Indonesia,” explained Mr Onyeama. “Concerning the manhandling and arrest of a Nigerian diplomatic agent in front of his official quarters on August 7, 2021.”
