The Nigerian ambassador to Austria yesterday felt the anger and desperation of protesting Nigerians after he suffered an attack from Nigerians in the country.
The ambassador is seen in a video online being shielded by Austrian police as Nigerian protestors shield him whilst they screamed and threw items at him. It took more than a handful of police guards to hold off the crowd from hurting him.
This attack, which occurred in Vienna, comes on the heels of the shooting and killing of unarmed protestors in Nigeria that drew international attention to the violent climate in the country.
The embassy is yet to release a statement on the attack.
