The Nigerian Government has recalled its Ambassador to Indonesia, Muhammed Buba Ahmed for questioning on the circumstances leading to the assault of a diplomat by men of the Indonesian Immigration Service in Jakarta. Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama who disclosed this at a news conference in Abuja said the action contravenes International Law as well as the Vienna Conventions governing Diplomatic and Consular Relations between States. He explained that the ambassador’s recall was a routine process to shade more light on the immediate and remote course for the brutal attack on the Nigerian official. The Minister also spoke on other sundry issues. Nigerian Government has however, sent an official protest to the Government of Indonesia on the August 7 incident despite an apology from the host government.
