Police officers and some armed hoodlums have evicted staff of the Nigerian Embassy in Kinshasa, Congo Democratic Republic, after taken over a building, SaharaReporters reports.

It was reported that the Jean-Claude Okito family of Congo DR had accused the Nigerian Embassy of encroaching on their land, claiming that it was occupied without any title deed by the Nigerian officials.

Reports say the family had visited the place last in August 2020 with a judicial order which was followed by a visit by one Hajia Kadijah in company of policemen and armed hoodlums who then took over the building and evicted a Nigerian Embassy staff named Kazeem.

The personal belongings of the staff including clothes and other valuables were seized by the armed Invaders.

John Obi, President of the Nigerian community in Congo DR, described the incident as a national disgrace, and called on the Nigerian National Assembly (NASS) to intervene on the ongoing diplomatic infractions.
