Nigerians living in Indonesia on Thursday attacked the Nigeria embassy in a protest in Indonesia over maltreatment, discriminatory practices and infringement on their fundamental human rights by the Indonesian immigration officials.

It was gathered that the protest began after a 41 year old Nigerian fell from a nine-storey building, while trying to escape from the Indonesian immigration officers. They also accused the immigration officials for killing fellow Nigerians for not giving them the money that they asked for.

The protesters destroyed properties at the embassy claiming that the authority has done nothing to protect them. The minister of foreign affairs Geoffrey Onyeama in a tweet condemned the attack, describing it as disgraceful. He said efforts are being made to identify those involved in the attack and to see to it that they are severely punished.
