The Federal Government on Tuesday said that it has invited the Nigerian envoy to Indonesia to return for Consultations in order to address the reported arrest and manhandling of its serving diplomat  Ambassador Usman Ogah in Jakarta.

Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, summoned the Indonesian Ambassador to Nigeria, Dr Usra Hendra Harahap, to express the displeasure of the government over the development even as the Nigerian government said it will review diplomatic relations with the country.

Briefing journalists on Tuesday in Abuja, Onyeama said that when the ministry noticed the video of the diplomat who was being restrained by his neck by Indonesian immigration officers in a moving car on social media, it immediately contacted the ambassador in Indonesia who gave a verbal account of what transpired.

The Minister added that the envoy confirmed that the video was indeed of a Nigerian diplomat in Indonesia and apparently, the illegal action took place during a round-up by Indonesian immigration officials while searching for irregular and illegal migrants in the country.
