The Nigerian Embassy in Germany has sacked a security guard, Martins Oni, found guilty of sexually harassing Nigerian ladies who come to the embassy for documentation.

The Embassy had suspended Oni while the Nigerian Ambassador to Germany, Yusuf Tuggar­, had ordered an investigation into the incident.

The investigation has been concluded and Oni was found guilty.

A statement from the Embassy reads.

“The Investigation 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’s contract with the Embassy as a Local Staff has been terminated.”

“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,” it stated.
