Sex-for-passport: Nigerian embassy in Germany sacks guard

Martins Oni, a security guard at the Nigerian embassy in Germany has been sacked.

In November, Oni was suspended after he was caught on video allegedly soliciting sex in exchange for a passport.

In the viral video, which sparked off reactions on social media, the security guard was seen in a hotel where he had planned to meet a woman for sex in order to facilitate the issuance of her passport.

Yusuf Tuggar, Nigeria’s ambassador to Germany, had ordered investigation into the incident, saying the security guard would face the law if found guilty.

In a statement on Tuesday, the embassy said Oni was found guilty of the allegation, having violated relevant codes.

“The Investigation Committee interviewed Mr Oni and other witnesses as part of a thorough examination of these very serious charges,” the embassy said.

“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.”
