Official of the Nigerian High Commission and Consulate in Indonesia was arrested and tortured by the Indonesian police after he went out to shop at a supermarket on August 7, 2021.
The officer, identified as Ibrahim, was accosted by the police, after which he told them that he was working as an officer of the Nigerian High Commission and Consulate in Indonesia.
It was learnt that his Identification card and passport were, however, not with him during his visit to the place.
The Indonesia Police officers reportedly did not listen to his plea and he was forced down inside a vehicle where he was beaten, and he started to suffocate.
A video footage monitored by SOJ WORLDWIDE ONLINE shows how Ibrahim was tightly held on the throat in a way suggesting that they wanted to suffocate him.
He was also heard screaming that he could not breathe.
The officers had ignored his explanation and plea and continue torturing him.
In a statement on Monday, the Foreign Affairs Ministry said: “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, concerning the manhandling and arrest of a Nigerian Diplomatic Agent in front of his official quarters on 7, August, 2021.
“This unfortunate incident is against international law and the Vienna Conventions governing Diplomatic and Consular Relations between States.
“The Nigerian Government has complained strongly to the Government of Indonesia and the Ambassador of Indonesia to Nigeria was summoned by the Nigerian Minister of Foreign Affairs.
“The Ambassador explained what he understood happened and apologized unreservedly on behalf of the Government of Indonesia. The Nigeria Government has sent an official protest to the Government of Indonesia.
“The Ambassador of Nigeria has confirmed that the immigration officials involved had since come to the Nigerian Embassy to apologize to the Ambassador and the diplomat concerned.”
