August 24, 2013 – Video: Angry Nigerians Attacked Nigerian Embassy In Ottawa, Canada Over Unannounced Closure

  • Protest At Nigerian Embassy In Ottawa Canada
  • Angry Citizens Called Police On Bribe Seeking Staff
  • Nigerian Embassy Staff In Canada Don’t Know How To Operate Passport & Visa Machine

On Thursday August 22nd, 2013, some angry Nigerian citizens in Canada attacked the embassy in Ottawa, the capital city of Ontario over an unannounced closure and attempt to collect bribe from them.

Dozens of citizens who came from different part of Canada to renew their passports, apply for visas and new Nigerian passports were surprised when the High commission told them they’ll be closing for a week.

The angry citizens immediately began a protest which almost turned violent if not for the quick intervention of RCMP Officers.

Their move forced Nigerian High Commission staff in Ottawa to start processing applications immediately.

Seriously Nigerian embassy in Canada is the worst in history.

When I travelled to Toronto last year, I went there to renew my passport, I was told I have to come back while new people who know the big bosses there were walking in right in front of me to get their passports renewed immediately.

As a Nigerian, I was forced to cause a serious scene before they could attend to me.

Shame on them.

So if I didn’t fight for myself last year, they would have send me back all the way to Toronto empty handed.

Nigerian embassy in Ottawa should be investigated for lack of human rights and corruption.

Yeye people.

The angry citizens banged loudly on the doors, pushing and shoving, until the few high commission staff that showed up for work finally opened the door.

Many went inside along with RCMP officers.

The high commission staff explained that they don’t know how to operate the computer that makes passports and visas.

  1. This should not be taken lightly. I have been sent back twice in the same embassy.
    They only attend to those that know people there.

    I almost cried in March if not for the intervention of my lawyer

    As a Nigerian, what right do I have.

  2. This kind of attitude is shame, how can they behave in such an unprofessional manner, so so bad. God will save Nigeria from this bunch of people that brought their dirty attitude to rub mud on us outside the shore of Nigeria

  3. HOW ABOUT THE POLICE REPORT DOCUMENTS PROBLEM IN SPAIN. THAT IS THE WORST SCAM IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD. WHERE YOU CAN PAY FOR A POLICE REPORT AND WAITED FOR A WHOLE YEAR TO GET IT DONE.

  4. MOST Nigerians have no LIMIT, the staff are blatant CRIMINALS!!! ..and don’t be shocked if some of those protesting are even worst than those inside the consulate. It does NOT make it any better, but just to show this ongoing criminal behavior from all sides when it comes to Nigerians. I absolutely stay clear of them based on passed experience in dealing with them. I don’t give a darn who gets angry at my expressions “who feels it knows it”…and I have been burned by Nigerians over and over because I tend to see Africans as my brothers and sisters and keep opening my door to even Nigerians. When will this end? No wonder Nigeria is in such a MESS. It means nothing to me when people respond saying “Nigerians are not the only criminals, the problem is: Majority counts and Majority of Nigerians that I’ve come across carry-on with fraud…I walked into a local bank and there goes the poster “Nigerian Check Fraud Ring”…Please stop this! Stop humiliating Africans and black people as a whole…why should those people pay bribe to receive their documents? SMH

  5. This has been going on for some time now cos it actually happened to me as well the last time i went to Ottawa to renew my passport…That short bastard wearing all Nigerian attire with a cap behind the police officer is Friggin rude cos i had an encounter with him before…They have no courtesy whatsoever…They simply need a good orientation on how to communicate with people…The last time i spent months before i could get my passport renewed…Punks**
