A Nigerian Embassy security staff in Berlin, Germany who allegedly solicits sex from women before issuing passports or visas have been suspended after a viral video showing him caught pant down surfaced online.
The viral video captured a shocked Mr Martins pants down in what looked like a hotel. A voice believed to belong to the person capturing the video could be heard saying “ Mr Martins, your time is up.”
The Nigerian embassy in Germany has confirmed the suspension of Mr Martins but refused to supply his name for legal reasons. It, however, mentioned that he works as local staff in the security unit. In a statement released on Tuesday, the embassy said Mr Martins suspension is in connection with allegations of sexual abuse and other serious criminal activity.
