A senior security staff of the Nigerian Embassy in Germany has been suspended after a video of him in a hotel room with a woman went popped up.
In the said video, the man identified as Mr. Martin was allegedly spotted soliciting for s*x from a woman before renewing her passport.
An unidentified man is said to have caught Mr. Martin pants down in the hotel with the lady who he allegedly asked to have s*x with him before he would release her passport.
“Let me explain, please. Please, it is not like that,” Mr Martin said in the video.
When asked to explain, he kept saying “please, please, please.”
The voice behind the camera accused Mr.Martin of regularly demanding s*x to do his job.
“Your cup is full, Martin. Your time is up,” the voice said.
Few hours after the video went viral, the embassy announced the suspension of the official who works as local staff in the security unit “with immediate effect.”
Management of the Embassy disclosed that the official had been in connection with allegations of s*xual abuse and “other serious criminal activity in return for official services”.
Nigeria’s Ambassador in Germany, Yusuf Tuggar, said the embassy had opened an investigation into the matter as no form of abuse would be condoned.
It is a great shame that people in high positions use their office to abuse others.
