Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr George Edokpa, has dismissed claims that Nigerians are being maltreated in Angola.
Edokpa described the alleged video clip circulating on the social media purporting to show how Nigerians are being maltreated in Angola as false.
The minister has stated this in a statement made available to newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja, saying that the attention of the ministry was drawn to the alleged video clip and urged the public to ignore it.
He said: “The Ministry is in contact with the Nigerian Embassy in Luanda, Angola, and wishes to categorically attest that the incidence under reference in the video did not occur in Angola.
“However, in line with the mandate of the Ministry to protect Nigerians in any part of the world, the Ministry is conducting a comprehensive investigation on the matter.”
