The Nigerian Embassy in Germany has dismissed its security officer found guilty of sexual abuse and other criminal activities.
The security officer identified as Martins Adedeji Oni was earlier seen in a viral video on social media, half-naked in a hotel room arguing with an unidentified person who accused him of demanding sex from females who applied for passport renewals.
The Embassy disclosed this in a series of tweets on its official handle @NigeriaBerlin on Tuesday.
The tweet read: “THE Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has terminated with immediate effect the contract of Mr Martins Adedeji Oni, a security officer at the mission.
“His dismissal comes after an investigation into allegations of corruption and sexual misconduct.”
His appointment has been terminated with immediate effect.
“As a result, Mr. Martins Adedeji Oni contract with the Embassy as a Local Staff has been terminated.
“The Embassy of the Federal Republic of Nigeria wishes to further stress its zero-tolerance policy towards all abuses of office, and especially of sexual misconduct,” the embassy noted.
