Update: Nigerian embassy in Germany fires security guard involved in sex-for-passport scandal


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.


Recall that last month, a video of Mr Oni inside a hotel room half-naked arguing with an unknown person who accused him of demanding sex from females who applied for passport renewals, went viral. 


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.”
