FG gives reason for shutting down Nigerian embassy in Germany


The Federal Government has revealed why the Nigerian embassy in Germany has been shut down.

In a statement issued on Friday, the Federal Government revealed that the embassy was shut down so that it can be disinfected.

This debunks claims that the building was shut down because of failure to pay the rent.

The statement said, “It has come to the notice of the Embassy of Nigeria Berlin, Germany an attempt to deliberately misinform and mislead the innocent and decent Nigerians resident in Germany and in other EU countries that the Embassy building in Berlin was shut down due to non-payment of rent.

“The Chancery Building in Berlin is the property of the Federal Republic of Nigeria from the first day. The reason for the temporary shutdown is to engage professional companies to sanitize and fumigate the building to make it safe and habitable for visitors and working staff due to the exigencies of Covid-19.

“The Embassy wishes to reassure all meaning Nigerians that it the shutdown is in deep consideration of the health and safety of staff and families visiting the Mission.”
