A demonstration has broken out in front of the Nigerian High Commission at 295 Metcalfe Street, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.


Eyewitnesses say the trouble started because the entire staff of the high commission traveled to Calgary  in the Canadian Prairies (about five and half hours by flight from Ottawa) without anyone in the office to attend to those who were scheduled to come to the office for consular services.

Some of those who were given appointments to come to the office today traveled over 800 kilometres to come to Ottawa and were visibly incensed when they found the offices of the high commission locked on reaching there.

And so, they started demonstrating.

Neither Ojo Maduekwe, Nigeria’s High Commissioner to Canada, nor other officers of the high commission could be reached for comments.

Ottawa police is helping to bring the situation under control.
