EXCLUSIVE: Police Department Set To Investigate Nigerian Diplomat by doggone: 9:59pm On Dec 25, 2021
Police department set to investigate Nigerian diplomat after a Senegalese pulled a gun on a doctor in Atlanta


The Sandy Spring Police Department in Atlanta is set to investigate allegation of criminal action against Mr Mohammed, a Senegalese staff (driver) of the Atlanta Consulate, for pulling a gun on a Nigerian and his family members who came to the Atlanta Consulate for passport biometrics.

The petitioner, Dr Tosin Ayodeji Joshua, an Obstetrician/Gynecologist, and his family were, on June 3rd, 2021, within the premises of the Nigeria Consulate Atlanta for data capturing when the incident happened.

Investigation has it that things would not have got this far if Ambassador Amina Smaila had taken necessary action on the matter. Rather, the consul general (CG) used her office to provide protection for the Senegalese.

Dr.Joshua and his family are now awaiting action from the police department pending further investigation in the matter and the eventual arrest of Mohammed.

Concerned Nigerians also alleged that Ambassador Amina Smaila and one Mr. Moses Damisa coerced a staff of the Consulate, Mr. Pius Uhumuobhi, to read a prepared self indicting speech on video against his will. For refusing to read the speech prepared by Amina, and which was to be videotaped inside the Consul General’s office, the infuriated CG chose to malign Pius in her message to a popular Nigerian blog. Mr. Pius reported the incident to another senior officer, Mr Shehu, at the Consulate, who expressed his displeasure at undiplomatic action of Amina Smaila.

"Forceful detention and videotaping of any individual against their wish is a criminal offence in the United States. Mr. Pius Uhumuobhi is a Nigerian American," he protested.

Nigerians in Atlanta have never stopped complaining about the high-handed attitude of the CG as allegations of ineptitude have been levelled against her in the recent past. It is also alleged that to reward Mr. Mohammed for "spying" on her staff, Ambassador Amina Smaila has hired the wife of Mr. Mohammed as a domestic staff at her unauthorized residence on Tuxedo Road, Atlanta, while she’s also scheming on how to get Mr. Mohammed returned as a driver at the Consulate. Mr. Mohammed had boasted to the people in his Senegalese community Whatsapp group that he is about to embarrass the Nigerian community and the Consulate Atlanta for “the shit that they are”.

Ambassador Amina Smaila is also alleged to have hired an intern, Mr. Kingsley Okogwu, a family friend of her boyfriend Mr. Damisa Moses. The intern has now been placed above foreign affairs staff of the Consulate and now attends highly sensitive official meetings attended by the Consul General taking notes for her, at the expense of dedicated foreign affairs ministry staff at the Consulate,

Also among the numerous allegations Nigerians have levelled against the CG is that the refusal of Mrs. Briggs and Margaret Mangai to continue to fund the unauthorized mansion that Consul General Amina Smaila is currently renting (while abandoning the existing official Residence on Roswell Road), that led to the CG trying to tarnish the image of these officers.
"We request a full audit of the finance of the Nigeria Consulate Atlanta since the resumption of Consul General Ms. Amina Smaila in Atlanta, and a proper accounting of the use of the $130 money order money collected from passport biometric applicants," a Nigerian told this reporter.

The most damning of the allegations against her is that Ms. Amina Smaila currently resides in the unauthorized Consul General residence with Moses Damisa, racking up a whooping monthly bill of $20,000 on rent, utility bills and security inclusive at the expense of Nigerians against the directives of the members of the House of Representatives Committee on foreign affairs that visited the Consulate September 2021

"It is high time someone told us who is her Godfather in the Presidency that “forced” her posting to Atlanta Consulate," another source said.

Recently, the CG was in the eye of the storm for purchasing a mansion in an exclusive area in Atlanta despite the veto of some members of the House of Representatives. Read the story here: https://www.nairaland.com/6834471/breaking-exclusive-news-nigerian-diplomat

She's doing what her nepotistic brothers in Aso Villa taught her— tyranny, nepotism, tribalism and the need to show anyone daz not from their tribe that they are conquered.
She's easily not the right person for the job but for quota system.

They have carried their retrogressive attitude to the US. C0w people.
