Armed men demolish Nigeria High Commission’s property

An apartment within the Nigerian High Commission has been pulled down by armed men who said they had the backing of national security.

The incident happened Friday night when bulldozers moved in, protected by the men who threatened to shoot staff of the embassy, JoyNews has reported.

The Nigerian High Commissioner, shaken by the incident, reportedly run away.

The block of apartments was being constructed as shelter for visiting diplomats and staff of the commission.

Helpless during the destruction, Emmanuel Kabutey who is the head of security at the High Commission said they were warned by an armed man that “if any of us try, he will clear us off.”

Police were called in after the incident but Mr. Kabutey said their posture was worrying.

“When the police came, they did not come to us or any other person but rather went straight to the man [leader of the armed men] they had a friendly chat, exchanged numbers with him and allowed him to go.

“When they came back in, they took pictures but did not ask me or my boys anything,” JoyNews has reported him as saying.
