The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has been petitioned by the Nigerian Youth Movement of Switzerland in a letter demanding a probe into the alleged corrupt practices by officials of the Nigerian Embassy in Bern.

According to The Guardian, the group in a petition signed by its youth leader, Irydaer Omobude, also petitioned the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) and the ministry of foreign affairs.

The group has called on the federal government to recall the ambassador, Baba Madugu and Mrs. Kemi Amuda back to Nigeria with immediate effect.

The group added that though the embassy has not replied to the letter, majority of the Nigerian community has lost confidence in the embassy.

The youth movement accused Madugu and Amuda of not serving the interests of Nigeria and her nationals in the foreign country, asking that they be recalled with immediate effect.
